Screen size/type for new 3D home cinema

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello All,
I am just starting my 3D home cinema build and am in the process of choosing my fixed screen. I will be using an Onkyo TX-NR5009 as my receiver, the Epson 5020UB as my 3D projector, the sony PS3 as my 3D player and am thinking of a 120" 2.35:1 curved screen. The room that I will be using is 12'6" x 15' and was constructed as a media room with a 12" riser. The riser is 8'6" from the front wall. I plan to ceiling mount my projector. The seating in the room will accommodate 10 people.

Questions
What anamorphic lens should I get for my projector to view with a curved screen?
Where should the projector be set up (i.e., how far from front wall)?
Is a curved screen better for 3D or can I make it work with a flat?
What type of screen (i.e., size, gain, make, etc...) should I get for this room size?
Is there any thing else that I should be considering (i.e., accessories, etc...)?

Thanks for your help!!!

I don't know much about anamorphic setups and curved screens. But I do have the epson 5020.

And the epson 5020 does not support an anamorphic lens. That requires a stretch mode and that is only found in the 6020.

I believe you would either need a blu ray player that can do this or a video processor between the ps3 and the 5020.

Thanks for the info. I guess I assumed that since the 6020 supported an anamorphic lens the 5020 would also.

Does the 2D to 3D converter work well with the 5020 or should I continue to buy dedicated 3D movies for viewing 3D?
