Definately 60" !!!
This is exactly why I want Bigger than 60", at 13' viewing distance
the SMPTE (Science of Motion Picture and Television Engineers')
recommends a screen size of 83.6" when you plug a 13' viewing distance (16:9 screen) into the calculator here:http://myhometheater.homestead.com/v...alculator.html
60" = 8'-0" recommended viewing distance
"If" you are interested in the cinematic effect of a 30º viewing angle to
fill your feild of vision.
THX recommendations are even closer 6.7' ( at 36º)
If you just want to "watch TV", sure 60" is fine at 13'
I quickly got used to sitting at 6'-7' from my 50" Pioneer in my apartment, but
now that I'm getting set to move into my new home and my basement entertainment
area measures aprox 17' x 14' my options are limited while trying to maintain those viewing angles.
