Building my own home theater has been a dream of mine for a long time. I've got lots of ideas on what I want in terms of laying it out but I'm in limbo over the question of what display device to go with. My basement room for the theater is somewhat small (12x16) and I've read the "rules of thumb" about sitting at least 1.5 times the screen length away. I really want the BIG screen feel and I just don't know if the 73" TV option is going to have that same appeal. I even lose about 3 feet of room to allow for the depth of the TV cabinet. Can I go with a projector or should I stick with the big TV? Thanks for any input.
