So if I'm reading this correctly if I were to get a BenQ 2050 and put it on my mount at 13'8" from center of screen then it would not quite fill my screen. Is that right?

Well I did an exact measure and it's 13'9" from the projector to the center of the screen. So I guess I'm out of luck for the 2050. Is there another that might fit the bill?

I used the projector central calculator but maybe I'm using it wrong. I selected the BenQ 2050 picked a throw distance of 13' and it shows a diagonal screen size of 137". Am I using the tool wrong?

I'm thinking I should be fine. Projector is overhead 13 ft from 120" diag screen. Seating is at 13 ft also. I assume that the 2050 can be flipped upside down to do ceiling mount. Also I would hope...

Yea the XL msrp is $1599 and the sub $499. The Denon usually runs around $479. I think I'm going to pull the trigger. Just not looking forward to repacking the Sony HT-RT5 to take it back to Costco.

GoldenEar Supercinema XL or New Yamaha 5600

Obviously I would need a receiver with the Goldenear but how do you think these two would compare. I have a 20'X20' room but the left side wall only extends back 10' and the back of the room is open.
