I tried your vivid settings (it is vivid I was mistaken) and they look great.

Hey Fraisa, If someone would offer to swap your Epson for a JVC DLA-RS60, Would you do it?

Why do you ask?
I actually looked into the jvc line in the summer
but the area jvc rep totally turned me off of the line...
Sure if it was a different rep i would be posting shots of the top JVC Model today...

As you can see by the shots above
You dont have to watch 2pc projection with the lights off
Anymore...
You cant even watch a plasma in high ambient light , for the glare would drive you nuts...

Fraisa, have you ever seen a Planar X-screen. Expensive and limited to 100" max, but it provides a better image in bright lights.http://www.planarhometheater.com/xscreen/details/

The image from a Black Diamond is nice and if it was AT I would consider it. Sound is just as important to me as PQ. For me it is too much of a compromise having to place the center speaker below the screen.

After all those pics you notice the speaker,,,
Thats like a woman going in for a chest job,
and then you still notice her nose....

Really.
For the record my pics are taken on a tri pod at 4-5 ft off the ground,
so in these shots you see the top of the center channel
but when sitting down you dont ..
But again if you look at all these shots and all you see is the center channel speaker you have got serious issues...
I am glad that the speaker is there cause then you know its my shots....

Okay some shots from the winter classic,
did something different with these since the lighting on the ice was so bad..(not bright across the entire ice alot of dark shadows, so its the source.)
i put these in Silver screen mode wanted a natural feel to the game
so its not as vivid colour as the above shots.. Nor should it be.
So here we go.
I have built man ice rinks in the backyard and the close up ice shots matches what true out door rinks look like ,(with out the paint)
Game was in the evening
Epson 9700ub
Silver screen mode
SI Black Diamond II .8 gain screen
Bell Express Vu HDTV
Yamaha A-2000
All Shots Live not Paused.....




Hockey Is just Not hockey without the Hockey Icon.....
Its not the guy on the left either.....

Not at all. Do this experiment. Place your center speaker in front of your screen so that all three speakers are at the same height (ear height) and listen to some movies. Then place the speaker below the screen. I worn you, you will not like it as much when you move your speaker back. I felt that my sound was good when I had my center below the screen. Did not think that it sounded like it was coming from below the screen, but it sure did after I tried it with the speaker in the correct location.

I feel that sound is just as important. I treated my room with sound panels and bass traps. My system is well balanced, as in my subs can keep up with my speakers. I use speakers with high sensitivity, high power handling and directivity. I power my speakers and subs with pro amps and I use PEQ for mains, center and all four subs. I calibrate my system using REW and a calibrated mic. My system is capable of clean reference level output down to single digits.

I am not saying that my system is great. There are a lot of nice systems here on AVS. My system is built for performance, not looks. Room is all black. I have sound panels and bass traps in my room. All audio equipment is located in another room so that lights, fan noise and heat is not added to the HT room.

As far as grey bars, I don't have any when watching scope movies.

Getting a good picture is cheap compared to getting good sound. As I said, from what I have read the image from a Black Diamond screen is very good. If it did not compromise the sound, I would love to own one.

My Room is not hurting at all when it comes to the sound department,
I have 11 speakers
Pinnicle has one of the best subs on the market
and all the speakers at the front are all there High End Black Diamond Series..
It will give Paradigm a run for its money any day.
Sure i could add a secondary pre amp..
But the Yamaha A-2000 does a very awesome job in the room
all speakers are mic calibrated as well ,.... THey are very very crisp...

Sure i could put the components in another room and just have the screen
but i didnt want to ..
Like it the way its is.....

As for screens Not one Da Lite screen that they make can go head to head in a gun show with the black diamond screen....


The SI Black Diamond Screen and the Epson 9700ub are a killer tag team...
