Hello every, and merry Christmas !
I have been watching the telly for too long, started back in 1963 with the Gunsmoke show
Now, my hometheater is quite "perfect" with a somewhat decent 7.2 setup (psb speakers and two SVS subs) on a marantz 5006, I feel its time to plunge into the real world
--- buying a projector and a screen.
My friends are trying to to talk me into buying a epson tw9100. I really dont have all that money. Since I am only viewing movies at night (7pm to 11 pm) in my living room with my dog and occasionaly mum, with a throw length of max 4 meters, and dark only at nights, movies like Pacific rim --- Ridick -- Star trek -- Cloud atlas, all just for fun, to relax from a hard day in the fields., I might not need such an advanced projector at all.
But I really really need lensshift. It will not be easy to get this projector in the place it really needs, I need lensshift to proper adjust it
So I am now about to decide -- will I be happy with this Benq 1070 ??
A problem is that the hdmi cable will be about 20 meters long, so a kind of "wireless hdmi" would be nice...
The screen -- looks like I will be just buying a Dreamscreen V2 automanual,
I do buy a 16:9 screen yes ? not a cinemascope ratio one no? And I have calculated tha a 106 " screen size will be just fine on my 3.0 to 3.5 throw l. -- OK?
havent decided on whether white with 1.1 gain (that Brightwhite) OR the 1.0 gain grey DynaGrey. What do you think on a Benq 1070, in my living room with 3.5 throw length with white walls and ceiling and almost no light control (it will get dark in them long winter evenings in Norway, and I am not in a city, there is no light from the streets into my windows...)
