I am thinking about getting a used JVC X35 for my HT. I am based in Australia.
Contenders are Sony 40ES, JVC X35, Panasonic A8000 or Epson 9200.
Are any of these loud? I can control the lighting, I have dimmable downlights 4 of them. A block out curtain for my glass stacker doors. Plantation shutter blind for a window. Entry door which is glazed glass.
Walls are dark grey colour but ceiling is white. 3D is not important as I get a headache watching it for more than an hour.
Room dimensions: 11.1 feet X 13.28 feet
I am thinking to mount a 110" fixed screen (on the 11.1 feet wall) with a ceiling mount for projector.
Seating distance around 12 feet or so.
Powerpoint and HDMI will be approx 13 feet from screen. So after mounting projector, lens to screen distance I would say around the 11.5 feet mark.
I will be watching 1080P movies and TV shows, and broadcast TV in 576P, 1080i.
Is watching sports of any kind ok on the JVC? Even if I have a bit of light, will it be ok? If I invite friends over or decide to open the stacker glass doors to watch sports.
I will have an entertainment unit below the screen to place my B&W MT30 package speakers They are just satellite ones. It will also have the blu ray player and amp stored here. I will get as low as possible for this unit. Maybe 42cm high cabinet plus the centre and front speakers I would say all up 60cm.
Is 65cm from floor to screen distance too high? If it is I can get lower cabinets.
My ceiling height is 9 feet.
