I agree the Sony's are good without a calibration, there are also a few DLP's you could look at if you wanted to start with a less expensive setup just to get a feel for the front projector world.
The Mitsubishi hc4000 is a low cost front projector solution with very good colors. However, on these lower-end units, the black levels aren't there like on the Sony, but they should match the Sony in sports or even beat it slightly, but they will be NO match for the Sony at movies.
Myself, I would suggest you need to see a few units before running out and spending $5000+. I would compare DLP to LCOS and see which you prefer. At that budget, you can do a lot, but that's part of the problem, preferences are going to make a big difference.
