Friend is setting up an HT adjacent to his home office.
Fully light controlled and starting from scratch.
There will be a good amount of viewing with enough lighting so he can use his laptop.
Screen size 105-115"
Seating distance front row 11ft
Unsure of PJ distance to screen, as it will either be at back wall or mid room.
He'll watch approximately 70% sports.
He is eyeing the Sony 1000 and high end JVC.
What else should he be considering?
Btw he hates motion blurring he gets on some flat panels.
I asked this in the 3000+ forum and was told to ask here.
Personaly I would not find that one bright enough for TV and sports in a room with the lights on. I did briefly see it in a blacked out room on a black diamond screen with a light gain. Could have been brighter, but definitly viewable.
Hard to watch athletic events in a dark room..............just my honest opinion.
With that said, look at the RUNCO LS-10, 12...........or DPI Highlite 260HC. AVS at one time had great pricing on the DPI Highlite. With Sony' new pricing............I'd look elsewhere. In regard to JVC's.........great for movies, not so for college football.
