The through-the-wall PJ is directly behind the seats, so gain is maximized. It is very
bright. I never need to turn brightness controls higher than about 60% and I've never seen a hint of hot-spotting. The VP/HP combination seems like a marriage made in heaven.
Dalites are pretty reasonable expense-wise, but the pull-downs may have some wrinkle issues. Just so ya know.
Thanks for the responses. I think you guys are right these high powers are the way to go. The projector is right behind me about 1 ft behind my head on a shelf and we are viewing pretty much straight on. Mike, I'm assuming you have this one.
The problem is I'm not finding anything that resembles this on the Dalite site. I'm after a fixed screen around 110" rather than a pulldown. I'm reading they don't make these anymore?
UPDATE: Ok so I called Da-lite today and they recommended this contour 2.4 screen. It seems pretty good and they said if I go to active 3D in future this would work well with that as well. The other question is screen size. I'm using 110" now but was thinking about going to 120". Not sure how much brightness I'd lose with this. Do you think this screen would work well with the Marantz?
I'm looking at the price list and they look to be about $1500
