I am building a home theater and was planning on buying an HDTV format screen (9:16). The size being 58"x104". Is this the aspect ration most people buy? I plan on watching mostly DVD and as much HDTV as I can. The projector is the Sony 10HT. Thanks for any help,

Hi Jym

16:9 is exactly what you will want to use with your new Sony.

Just a second agreement. For the sony 10HT the only screen that makes sense would be 16x9.

It's great to have all this great gear. But I'd instead put all that money into software (Movies) I'd have SOMETHING TO WATCH ON ALL THIS GREAT GEAR. Doh!

It's hard to love Martin Logans and 2.35:1 CIH at the same time...
