after much research on projectors, it appears that dlp gives the most bang for the buck(any contrary opinions are welcome). many demos have lead me to the marantz VP-12S1 and the sharp XV-Z9000U. my untrained eye sees a slightly more vibrant picture in the marantz. both projectors had the same components at the same settings connected to them. any opinion on which direction to turn or overall dlp advice would be very helpful.
