Fleaman, agreed , thats why Im constantly bringing up viewing distance.
Im all for the huge screens at proper viewing distance. Im not so stoked on the huge screens a few feet away.
Again im between 10-14 feet away.
I dont mean to discredit people on this thread, your all very knowledgeable, and opinions very important.
Today I asked my kids and they said go bigger!
I asked a few other freinds, and the first thing they said is, wont the picture quality come down? This is coming from a 26 year old man, who still uses a 4:3 crt tv.
So you would expect on the avscience forum, im more then shocked about this bigger is better attitude.
Again I dont know what blue rays you view, but their is so many terrible blue ray transfers out their.
Nothing takes me out of a movie more then picture quality flaws. Thats why Im shocked at the people who still want bigger from only a few feet away.
I would rather have a good looking picture a bit smaller, then a large picture, with poor quality, showing all the films flaws.
I think I would probably have some people agree with me on other forums (blue-ray) but the projector/screen forum, I always felt held picture quality as its most important aspect.
Im sorry Im just really perplexed, Im only 25 years old myself, but maybe its a changing of the times. Size before quality.
My point is you want immersion, but doesnt ugly looking poor quality, overprocessed, dnr, edge enhanced crap, blown up on a big screen take you out of a movie?
Again Im all for big screens at proper viewing distance, but this forum seems to be going in the direction of just wanting a bigger picture, no matter how bad it looks. Im just confused by it. I expect that from the majority of the public who also put their tv's in torch mode, but for avscience forum, with knowledgable members who spend hundreds of dollars just to have their projectors isf calibrated, i find it odd that people here will still go bigger just for the sake of going big.
I would cringe if I spent money on my isf calibrated projector to look great, and then completely ruin it by getting the biggest screen i can, blowing the picture up, and sitting a few feet away, it kind of defeats the purpose does it not?
