    Projector & Speaker Setup Advice

    I may be looking into converting one of the rooms in the 'ol homestead to a movie/games type of thing.

    Do any of you have any experience of owning/using HD projectors?

    My big concern is lack of contrast i think, but if there are any other pitfalls or things to keep in mind when selecting kit I'd be thankful for the advice.

    A semi decent surround setup would be in order as well for immersion purposes

    I believe someone here does have an HD projector setup, but I can't for the life of me remember who. I think the key to that is proper spacing to the screen, and absolutely NO ambient light (black walls, etc). don't forget that movie theaters are the exact same thing, and they work pretty well.

    The downside is HD projects are very expensive, as are replacement bulbs.

    burt/mephisto has a projector setup and knows a ton about the subject, next time I see him online I'll point him in the general direction of this thread...I mentioned this screen to him a while ago, and while I clearly see the benefits of an acoustically transparent screen I still balk at the price...

    If you like watching videos for research, HD Nation has been doing a lot of stuff on projectors in the last couple of months. they did a nice bit on the Optomas which are often found cheap in refurbished form via Woot. They've also reviewed a lot of higher end ones like the JVC X3, the Cine 230 and have discussed different screens and some stuff on setting up a room for projection.
