The tricky thing for me is that ideally I could fit in a 106" 16:9-er in the area I have planned for it, but there are no 106" in AT material that are also retractable, that could drop down in front of the exit to my balcony. I want to place my speakers behind and they would fit perfectly there, and allow me to do a proper 7.1 setup because my living room is much wider than it is long, so I can then rotate my couch and sit much farther away, but I also have a wide-angle lens coming in soon, so I needed to calculate where to place my projector so I could fit the entire width into a 2.35:1 aspect at 100", which ends up forcing me to put the zoom at 1.03 and the distance at 8 feet, for a 16:9 image of 75" (3/4 of 100), so that the width is re-stretched out to fit the 87" original (back up from 65" which is for the 75" diagonal). Anyway, blah. I'll give a mini review once I get it set up.
What I'm trying to say is, once you've decided that 16:9 AT screen is the best bang / buck, then you decide when you want to use some anamorphic lenses, so you can do a constant image width with masking on the tops and bottoms (in case your room is width-limited and not as height-limited). Anyway, I'll be glad to have a decent AT 16:9 screen, as I can always sell the projector and screen and mount as a combo later on, or keep it for a second player in a multiplayer gaming room (or even the bedroom!! rar rar). haha. I would kill to be able to watch vids in bed. That would be the ultimate decadence.
