Introduction

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Good afternoon,

New member here; just introducing myself. I'm not sure if this is the place to do it, or not.

While I'm in the 3D display area, I will say that I just bought a Mitsubishi 82738 Display, an Onkyo TXNR708, and a set of Klipsch Surround Sound Speakers. Seems I need to have at least three posts before I can insert links, so no links this time.

This is an upgrade to my current setup which is a Mitsubishi WS55315, and a Yamaha Home Theater in a Box system (the model currently escapes me).

I am remodeling a house, so I had the opportunity to upgrade my theater experience. The great room will be approximately 27' X 35'.

I have been lurking around the forum for a couple of weeks, and it seems there are a lot of informed folks here. Hopefully I will learn a lot with your help.

Thanks!

I haven't gotten it set up as of yet. Still waiting on the remodel to be completed. I am excited though.

Thanks for the welcome.

Try to keep seating as close as possible....

Welcome Wheeler

If I might say so I would at least fire up the TV and see
if it works.

Enjoy your stay here

I think our seating will be 10 to 12 feet. There is certainly enough room for a large sectional sofa in the room with enough room behind it to get to the rest of the house.

I wish I could. I have not received it yet. It's not due for delivery for another couple of weeks.

Besides, if I open it, I'll want to keep it open, and moving an 82" TV twice does not seem appealing. I do have my new AVR and speakers, however, and it's taking every ounce of self-control to not set that up at the old house.

I have a 61" TV and normally sit 13' from the set. When I play 3D I break out the video gaming chair and get about 7'-8' from the set. Believe me, you want to be as close as possible when viewing 3D, especially if you are getting DLP Link glasses.

Yeah.. Plan to be closer when using 3D.

Even with an 82" screen?

Just a thought, I mean you get to decide.

I like 8' from my 106" screen in the theater.

I have been moving my furniture a little closer to the 65" where the furthest seat is like 8'....

Just 3D shrinks the percieved size of your screen is all. You'll see.

The 3D effect only comes out so far. The closer you get to the screen the more you feel like you are a part of it so to speak. Sitting 10' away the 3D will not really come out and grab you like it does when you are sitting closer to the screen.

Interesting points. I always felt like the image was recessed into the screen when viewed in the theaters. I never really got the impression that they came out of the screen. Kind of like a "reverse 3D," if you will.

What you say makes sense, however. In either case, the effect is more dramatic the closer you are.

Thanks for the heads up though. I might have noticed the same thing you guys did and might have been disappointed without even thinking that moving closer might make a difference.
