Its an awesome projector. It is my first projector and I haven't used the W1070 so cant tell how much better it is from W1070. BUT Wow what a picture quality
I set it up to my Harman Kardon AVR 171 with a 5.1 Speaker system.
Have a nice 120 Inch electric Screen which falls right infront of my 55 Inch 3D LED TV. (I picked up a cheap screen nothing fancy it has a 1.1 Gain and made in china)
I hooked up a MAC Mini with a Drobo 5D HDD and have my Plex server and Plex Home Theater on that.
I have the Cable box also connected.
The Harman Kardon AVR allows 2 HDMI outputs, so it takes in HDMI's from my DVD Player, Mac Mini, Cable Box and gives me two HDMI Outputs, one to my projector and one to my TV.
Interestingly my projector to screen distance is just 10.5 Feet and my seating is also at the same distance. I was worried the 120 Inch screen will strain the eyes a little but its just perfect. 2D and 3D viewing both.
Double thumbs up...
Happy it worked for you ! My HT 1075 is on the way at the moment.
I sold my AVR 171 this week end. In all honesty the sound is good but when you start to listen to higher end things it leaves you quite frustrated. I ended up with used onkyo receiver and KEF speakers and even spared some money !
(it tells you a lot about this market that you can sell an harman kardon set and buy an onkyo THX receiver and KEF speakers for a third cheaper!) .
I am going for projector only. I sold my tv too. If I regret latter I may buy a 55 inch dumb TV too from hisense or brand like that.
Unfortunately at the moment I can't go larger than 85 inches for the projector with a 12 feet viewing distance, it won't be super big but already more than twice the size of my 55 inches tv.
When I will get the money to change my sofa and all maybe I'll change the all configuration and go for 120 inches like you !
Otherwise I use a HTPC (Zotac id92...quite powerful maybe too much lol) with XBMC and a simple 4 hardisk enclosure. No need of NAS for me.
A xbox 360 (rarely used).
HD sat receiver for watching football or tv channels from my country.
About your screen, where did you buy it and how much?
Did you install the projector on the ceiling?
Have you installed everything yourself?
Did you pay the 5% tax at dubai customs?
