I watch a lot of movies in my man cave but also lots of sports ... NFL and NBA mostly. Currently have a RS-1 which is OK but getting a little old. Who can recommend a good projector for sports? I'm looking for clarity and focus. I have a fully light-controlled cave room.

What is your projector budget?

Budget is < $5k

My goal is to increase screen size from current 110" to 135" which would fill up most of my front wall. My next-door neighbor has RS-60 and Stewart 135" perforated screen at it is amazing. Not sure how good it is for sports.

OK, if I go with a Sony HW50ES and I want to increase screen size to 135" .... what is the best fixed screen I can get?

Especially keeping in mind the need to keep sports as un-blurry as possible. I have complete control over ambient light. Room is about 24 x 16 x 8.5.
