I am in the process of setting up a projector set up in my basement and I am interested in either the Sony HW50ES or the JVC 4810, when it's available, and the question I have is, which screen is suggested for either?
I have been looking at the JK Affinity, the Stewart CIMA, and the acoustic transparent Screen Excellence Enlightor 4k from Seymour AV. The room is light controlled with dark walls and a dark ceiling. The viewing distance, if I do 2 rows, is roughly 8-9 and 13.5-14.5 feet back. If I do go with the AT screen I do have room for the speakers behind so that isn't an issue. I have had conversations with Mike at AVS and he really likes the AT screens because how much better the sound effect is where as a local dealer thinks the better picture with the others screens is better option.
Also, I will be doing a majority of movie watching with either projector with a bit of 3d as I think it is pretty cool on my Panasonic GT50 so I think I would like to enjoy it on the larger screen too. Obviously though, I think percentage-wise regular 2d movies would still be in a high 90 percent. There may be some sports but not enough to base my purchase on, and there may be some gaming later on as I have a 4 year old and imagine he will want a playstation or something in the not to distant future. And if I can throw one more monkey wrench in to the mix, I think the 235 scope is kind of a cool setup and that would probably knock me out of the Sony HW50 and have to consider the JVC a bit more. Any thoughts from those of you who have been doing this would be great as I haven't done much with projectors recently.
