Why "wall to wall"? What about speakers? The spacing of speakers out into the room is what will deliver the multi-channel soundstage experience. As for the paint (vs. screen), I'm investing in a...

My first projection set-up (initial phase) is nearly complete and the last piece is the delivery of Stewart ST-100. The bare wall is old off-white and textured and white poster board yields a...

Why is it going to be hard? Cut 2-1/2 inch strips of poster board (the kind which is stiff, not paper board) and affix to decent sized squares of velvet with staples. Use 2-inch wide strips of...

Low end. Cute. BenQ is entry level and yet they have a 4K model coming. It will be 5 years or more before 1080P projection is anywhere close to the 720P equivalent.

Well, the fact remains that it is 2016 and not 2025. I have a small blu collection of around 400 titles and even replacing half with UHD discs will not be possible for at least five years. The last...

In summary, you aren't interested in the best overall image quality when viewing actual blu-ray content (movies, etc). Interesting.

Quick recap on the carpet discussions in this thread. Was there ever a top two or three black carpet to consider? Not looking for wall-to-wall, but merely a 10' X 10' piece (approx).

Did you save the calibration using the ISF Setting, which I think becomes available (can be seen) when getting an ISF cal. I was wondering if ISF worked differently than the standard User options.

Is there any reason to believe that the ISF picture mode will allow the CMS to work as it should? Alternatively, couldn't JVC include a fix with a firmware upgrade?
