By the way, I forgot to mention one other advantage of the Darkstar - the image with the Darkstar 1.4 is sharper than both the BD 1.4 and the DNP 2.3.

In looking at your picture, I'm guessing that you would need to raise the screen by at least a foot, so that the 155" diagonal screen is above the speakers. My preference would be to have a smaller...
