Ok guys, here are the details:
-14x20 dedicated room (though can extend to 14 x 30) in basement (yet to be finished) mainly for movies
-steel column right smack in the middle at 16', 2 other columns right around 20' that can be hidden in the back wall or keep them and extend room to 30
-seating will be 8 Berklines, front row IOIOOIOI, second row on a riser with IOIOI pole IOIOI

Pioneer Elite BDP-95HD
B&W CWM800-4 in walls
Monster HTS 5100
My questions are:
1) Many have suggested going up to 110". I'm not sure whether the Sharp will allow that since I have to hang right in front of the column. I think throw distance is at least 13.5'.
2) Others have suggested JVC RS2 instead of the Sharp. Very different technologies. I have read the reviews, some that compare even, but any comments appreciated.
3) Better acoustically to have 14x20 or 14x30?
4) Dealer suggested Control 4 remote but I really can't see paying just under a grand for a remote. Seems like a complete waste of $. Thoughts?
Any comments or even general thoughts appreciated. I will post pictures of the development once we actually choose a GC!
