my first post, please don't rip me a new one?
i realize this has probably been covered a thousand times, but this is a bit unique.
i just moved, and i'm looking to upgrade from my epson moviemate 72 projector. it's been fine, but i'd love to grab something that's 1080p, and i don't need the dvd/speakers/etc.
i'm a record producer/audio engineer, so i'm ready to get nerdy.
my new bedroom and living room are connected, so i'd like to have two projectors set up, that way i can start a movie in the living room and finish it in the bedroom, via powered HDMI splitter. or simultaneously watch a movie with company staying over, instead of falling asleep in the living room
i much prefer a projector over a tv - i don't have/want cable. just movies, which i'm planning on doing via ipad-with-vga-connector and/or my laptop (which i've been doing for years). i have two Marantz 2270's for each room, a pair of JBL L100t3's for the living room and a pair of JBL L20t3's for the bedroom. i know, old school... just love the sound though. i'll be building nice screens for each room, got that all ready to go.
anyway, the living room is 13x10 and the bedroom is about the same (it's a beach bungalow in Santa Monica). there seems to be 20 billion projectors out there - i just want something that's 1080p, has HDMI and VGA inputs, looks fantastic, and is on the rugged side. not really interested in 3d as of now. light isn't a problem, i have some serious blinds...
