Guys, I'm hoping to get suggestions for a projector to use in my living room/ht. The room is 25x21x10 with openings to 3 other rooms. I've improved the level of ambient light control, but it's still not perfect and I doubt it will ever be. If possible, I'd like to mount on the opposing wall which would put the lens roughly 19' from the screen. That said, if this really impacts projector choice and performance then I will most certainly ceiling mount. I'm heavily leaning towards a 120" Stewart Studiotek 130 G3 screen.
The projector will be used almost exclusively for either sports or movies. Movies will be mostly at night so I will not have to deal with as much ambient light. Sports will often be during day and with brighter room lighting as well. I'm not interested in 3D or 4K (yet), but I would certainly like a high quality 1080p projector.
I'm not sure how bright a projector I would need for this kind of viewing so I don't know how big a budget is appropriate. I'm open to hearing all ideas and suggestions.
Edit: I guess as a starting point I should mention that I am certainly open to spending $5k on a projector. If there is a model that will fit the bill for slightly more I am open to that. Unfortunately, the 25K 3 chip dlp's are out of my budget.
