Hi All, While I am new to HTF but I’m not completely an HT newbie. Sorry in advance for the lengthy post but all seems relevant to my questions. My system: Sony Wega 36” Onkio w/DTS receiver Bose Accoustimass 10 Toshiba SD-4700 DVD Monster 3 cables w/optical audio and component V. on DVD Considering adding a DLP projector and screen for my DVD collection (to enjoy a large picture). Here in the middle of AZ, there is only one HT store selling only very high end equipment and charging $150/hr for consulting. So, I came here hoping for a bit of advice. Still on a budget, I am considering a lower end projector. CNET points to Mitsubishi XD50U and Dell 3200 MP (both 1024 x 768). Recent postings here seem to favor the March arrival of Infocus 4805. Preliminary screen research indicates Da-Lite screens can be purchased under $400 for a manual or about $750 electric (52x92). I have a place to hang the screen and if I do this, will only pull out the projector for viewing (not perm. install) and adding a secondary s-video cable to the DVD player. Projector throw approx 14.5 feet. Q’s: 1) Without being able to go anywhere to see projectors side by side is there any way to evaluate anticipated picture quality? Anticipating nighttime use only, I am not concerned about ambient light. The local HT store’s proj’s start at $5000 so I have no idea what to expect from units priced around $1,600. 2) These projectors claim “adjustable picture size” how do I determine optimal throw distance as compared with what to expect from my anticipated 14.5 foot throw? 3) Both projectors claim “Keystone” control at 16 degrees +/-. Is this only vertical or does this mean horizontal too? How can I determine the effect if I am beyond 16 degrees? For example: Screen will be approx. 45” tall with bottom edge 45” from floor. If projector lens is 30” from floor how much distortion can I expect? Alternatively, I could place the projector in another location 48” from floor and 20 foot throw but the projector would be off center of screen (nearing the right edge - too much horizontal keystone?) 4) Screens: tensioned screens are double if not triple price of non-tensioned. How necessary is the “tensioned” feature? Or should I ask: how much picture distortion should I expect if I go cheap and skip the tensioned feature? 5) What questions should I ask that I have not? If I do not go this route, I may get a bigger TV. I’m a bit stumped because the rear proj CRT’s are affordable but they take up loads of space (huge foot-prints) and suffer reduced view angle - While the DLP’s are still too pricy and CNET claims the picture quality is not as good as CRT’s. Any thoughts here are also very welcome! Thanks in advance! I know I am asking many questions and I hope I am in the right forum area (if not, please direct me to the correct area and I will re-post).
