I am replacing my Sharp XV-H37VUA projector after 5 years, and I need some advice on what to buy because every new projector I've seen looks awesome. I've read the threads here for the last month. It has helped my search, but I still have questions. My theater is a dedicated basement room with no windows. The room is 14'x 28' with an 8' ceiling, and I am currently using a 16:9 Da-Lite screen that measures just under 120" on the diagonal. The furniture is situated so that we usually watch 10'- 15' from the screen. The theater is used mostly for watching sports DVDs,and some TV, and the plan is to add HDTV with a bigger DirecTV dish and an antenna. I am willing to spend up to $12k, but I would like to spend less. Also, I would prefer to deal with someone locally here in Atlanta. The Sharp 9000 is widely available now for $7k, and I am leaning that way. I want to stay away from CRT's because I don't want to have to get it alligned once or twice a year. The LCD's in my range look great, but I don't really need the extra brightness, and the ones I have seen do not have the same depth of color or contrast as the Sharp. The $12k Seleco DLP HD-1 and the Marantz projectors I saw were only a little better than the Sharp and, to me, not worth the extra money. The Runco CL 700 with the controller was incredible, though, and I could not easily distinguish it from the $26k Runco. It was noticeably brighter and clearer than the Sharp with the same or better colors. With the controller, the Runco is $12k. Should I wait for the HD-2 projectors? Are they that much better? Are they more like $15k? What about buying the Sharp with the Runco controller ($10k total), or should I just get the Runco package? Is there another projector I should consider? Help, please.
