Whats your budget? You may not like the answer if you don't have enough money. Also could you describe what "good contrast" means to you. Please give us some hopeful numbers of what you're looking to achieve.

Btw you don't need 5000 lumens. You're screen is ~83 square feet. For 2D viewing you could easily get away with something around 2000 calibrated lumens. Less if you're using an anamorphic lens. If you truly needed 5000 lumens a Sim2 Lumis stack would be your best bet but in your case you can get away with just one. This is the projector you should look into.

Its hard to find a projector that's bright AND high contrast. The Lumis is one of only a handful of projectors that have both qualities .

I don't know if there is single projector that will cost under $5000 that will meet your needs for brightness and contrast. With your budget you'll probably want to stack two projectors . Maybe two refurb/b-stock JVC DLA-RS45's. Or possibly two Sharp XV-Z30000 projectors.

I know JVC gives a nice picture but at 1300 lumens each not sure two would be enough? Ill take a look at the sharp. Btw, would I lose 3D capability by stacking?

Sharp looks good too. Ill have to dig a little deeper into details but i prefer to have motorized shift, zoom, & focus.

How difficult would it be to stact digital projectors?

Thank you for the replies!

Like your choice of surrounds. I have six of the JBL 8340's (not 8340A) speakers myself. Also have some of the SI-18's. Keep us updated on your project.. smile.gif

Same here. The plastic box have more flex and the 8340A does not have the selection switch for flat or X-curve. I run mine on the flat setting. These are some of the best bang for the buck surrounds that you can get. I paid $40 each for my first pair. Had the opportunity to buy more then, but that was several years ago. Just recently got the other four. They were $90 each plus shipping.
