Hey PT-AE8000 owners!
I'm seriously considering this PJ or the JVC DLA-X35 (RS46).
I'm leaning more towards the 8000 because it's almost $1k cheaper than the JVC and has brighter 3D and I can get a bit more throw distance out of it compared to the JVC because of the shorter depth of the PJ. Granted, the JVC has the deeper blacks, but I can't justify the $1k extra cost for that
Anyway, I'm looking at a 125" cinemascope image at approx 3.94m throw distance.Question:
If the 8000's PJ lense is not exactly
horizontally centered along the back wall, that doesn't matter too much right? The lense shift adjustment will allow me to move the image to fit the screen perfectly right?
It's just that the center of the PJ's lense will probably be 20 - 30cm to the right of the exact centre of the wall. This is because there is no wall stud in the exact centre of the wall, nor is there one at the exact center of the ceiling
Advice appreciated. I can't wait to get the 8000 lighting up my 125" scope screen in my dark HT room! EDIT: The other option I have is to put a well ventilated pigeon hole / niche in the plaster wall to house the PJ so I can utilise the full 4.5m throw of the room. With this solution, I can project a 130" - 140" scope image at that throw distance. Seating will be approx 3.5m from the screen. There is enough depth in the wall for the pigeon hole because the other side of this wall is the microwave tower in the kitchen, with empty space up near the top of the ceiling.
