    What is the largest possible screen width one could reasonably go for before the image started showing its flaws? I know this is a subjective question, but I figured the hard-core videophiles, who really care about image quality, might give me the best answer [​IMG]

    It depends on your screen type really. With a Torus screen properly built, you can achieve remarkable gain allowing your screen to be very large.
    For a good tutorial/reference site, goHERE
    Once you read that, post some more questions.

    Further, with a 9" CRT it's not 'flaws' that will stop you increasing the size but brightness. Even with a torus screen you can only go so big with a single projector before the image begins to get too dim.
    Of course, you could always buy one of these:

    It would probably go as big as you'd ever want, but...[​IMG]

    ...But I'd probably have to sell all of my internal organs to afford it? [​IMG]
