Projector Selection Help Needed -- Details and Photos Included
So I have decided to convert a room in my home into a media room -- my large open living/family/breakfast/kitchen area just does not lend itself to a full experience for audio (over 6,000 ft^3) and my seating from my 60" VT60 plasma is too far for a real movie experience.
The room I'm going to convert is in photo below -- a music room. This room measures 11'4" wide and 15' 10" deep. Windows are already covered -- and light bleed from the main hallway is minimal; this would only apply to daytime viewing. With the lights out the room is dark, even during the day.
This is where is gets dicey -- because this room is open to the main hallway (photo below) (and with speaker placement) -- I MUST place the screen on the wall where the piano is shown in the photo. Meaning depending on the depth of the projector and distance from the back wall (where the brass planter is) -- I am going to be pressed for throw distance. Probably looking at right around 9.5' to 10' depending on the depth of the unit.
I would like to do a 84-92" screen, as seating would probably be around 9.5' feet away once setup a little off that back wall.
I am looking at an Elite Screens EzFrame Screen with the CineGrey material -- probably know I will have to go with the 84"??
So what projector will serve me well in this room. I've been looking at:
I'm open to options that will work best for this space.
Appreciate the help greatly!!
