Let me second that recommendation for a scope screen. I have an 11' scope and wouldn't do it any other way. TV and other 16:9 content looks great, while scope movies are spectacular, as they are intended to be. Also, many movies are in 1.85, slightly wider than 16:9, and the AE4000 lets you create a lens memory specially for that aspect.
The important thing, if you decide to get a scope screen, is get one that's big enough so 16:9 images are without compromise.
You might consider the 136" Carada Precision, brilliant white material (you want BW for a screen that big). I see they have free shipping this month.http://www.carada.com/ProductInfo.as...N-SCREEN-C136P
And yes, the AE4000 is definitely worth the money. And through the end of March there's a free bulb offer, another nice savings. If you can wait 7 months, you could see what the (likely) AE5000 has to offer. Although 7 months is a long time in home theater years.
