    I've got a chance to get this: http://www.proxima.com/support/Products10.asp. This is my first attempt at a projector. Will I be happy with this as a first, my budget is limited to around $3k, although I've only got to spend $1100 on this one, freeing up more $$ on my speakers. I currently own the Onkyo 989 reciever.

    Does noone here know anything about Proxima? What effect will 100:1 contrast have on a picture? That is the lowest I have seen in any description of any projector, and am concerned that the contract might jusat be a deal buster.

    It's probably not the best choice at this time. Save a bit longer until you have at least $1400 or so to put into a projector. As you guessed, the contrast ratio is really way too low for a good HT picture.
