I have a 55" LG LED 3D tv, which I am happy with sitting 12 feet away in the apartment.

Will be moving to a house and the distance I measured will be 15-16 feet from the back wall. What size would be best. I guess bigger the better, but can I get away with 70" or do I need a 80". Can I hang this size tv on the wall?

Is sharp the only one who makes 80" tv. I don't need 3D, but if I get it for a good price, I will take it.

here is the layout of the room. yellow marks the potential for 5.1

THX calculations will reccomend 100+ inches. I am 14 feet away and I have a 55"...I wish it was bigger smile.gif but I refuse to sacrifice image quality for a larger screen. Projectors can always bump that image size up smile.gif

What's your budget for screen? Do you have home theater already?

This is the family room so no projector, there is not other dedicated HT room.

If you are happy with an lg 55" at 12 feet, you will be happy with a 70" at 15 feet. You actually have several options including the just released Sony 70" r550 and soon to be released vizio m series 70" or 80".
