Nice review. I've been kinda set on a Marantz receiver, but the more I read about it, I may hop on board the Yamaha train when they roll out their new receivers in the fall (crosses fingers)?

Watched the video. It looked very cool. If it gains traction I may bite, but I have to disagree with the controllers aspect, at least with respect to a steering wheel for games. I remember when...

I can't go triple screen, but I do have a custom built (by me :)) screen for my projector and it's 21:9 so I'm running a custom 2560x1080 resolution. Project Cars should look sweet on it.

Which is why at the end of the day i think a PC is actually less expensive in the long run than console gaming, especially if you like having peripherals. That being said, I really miss Forza and...

I have a G27 and this lack of wheel support is the only thing stopping me from buying an Xbox One. I love Forza, but I just can't justify buying another wheel (and playing with a controller isn't...

I have a GTX 760 on Win8 and it runs my new games just fine at 2560x1080 with an Optoma HD3300 and a Panamorph UH480 lens. The link is for the exact same card I have and it runs buttery smooth.

It would be reasonable if you didn't have to upgrade every few years just to stay on top of things. I'm not complaining, though. I know that's how it is with this hobby, and I've made the decision...

Barrelbelly,

You've got your work cut out for you with those games. I would suggest doing Dragon Age Origins then DA: Inquisition in that order. I did it the other way and I found the combat to...

I know I commit a videophile faux pas when watching multi aspect ratio movies, but with my constant height setup, I have it set to 2.35:1 (same as my screen), so I don't even notice the switch to...

The 3D + Atmos presentation combined is, IMHO, the major reason to buy this film. Apart from that, it's pretty meh if I'm being honest (I bought the film solely because of how awesome the 3D...

Hmm, the XD material is great but I would say its only limitation is seating distance. From 7.5 feet the weave may prove to be distracting. I'd test a sample first before you decide to build your...

Totally agreed. But if one already has the lens, it may not be a bad idea to test it out on a 4K projector before selling it is all I'm saying. One thing that is nice (and bringing it back to the...

You know what "fine" stands for? Freaked out, insecure, neurotic and emotional. I'm sure you'll be fine if you sell your lens. ;)

Well, here's something else to think about. Anamorphic encoded Blu Rays and UHD Blu Rays aren't gonna happen, so again, you'll be losing those pixels if you ditch your lens. Even if the difference...

It sounds like you've got a good lens. I started with the HTB lens, but quickly found it not good enough for my needs. I jumped on a Panamorph UH480 and it's been fantastic. Personally, I'd try...

When you aren't using a lens and have a 2.35:1 screen and zoom, do you get light spill on the top and bottom of the screen or does the projector somehow account for that? I am using a lens and have...
