If anything, I would want to get a new screen (maybe curved) and bring it out and closer to the seats and maybe larger.

But that's harder to justify as I would want a new projector as well.

The specs in the manual list it at 35db. They don't list the ECO mode fan noise, but if full is 35db, ECO is probably around 30db? That's why I had not been considering that model in the first place...
