I have been lurking on here for a few months since we have relocated. The more I lurk the sooner I want to finish out my basement theater room. Money for now is going to be limited, so quality may be sacrificed. I'll list my limitations and ideas, any imput is greatly appriciated. Exact specs and pictures can be posted soon, just trying to keep it simple...right.
Needed: PJ and screen for my money/ceiling hight limits
Room space is about 14x14 ish, 7'7" ceiling hight, with open space right and behind viewing zone. The actual screen wall is 168"x91". Walls freshly painted flat greyish brown and a shade or two lighter on ceiling.
So...my thoughts for pj=Veiwsonic pro8100 ($1200-1300), a DIY 120" 1.78:1 BOC.
The flexibility, specs, and cost for the VS, to me makes since. BOC from ebay for screen material looks good.
I still have to purchase a ss receiver, so $2000 for pj and receiver is what I am going for. This will be a basic set up for movie watching, some tv, and gaming. Sort of a 3-5yr use and then see what comes out then...
I hope this is enough info for the concept. If not please let me know, all imput will be processed, but price is important right now.
