I have limited room in a small, dedicated home theatre. The maximum throw distance I can accommodate is 8ft 6in. The screen size I have is 92 inches diagonal, 16:9.
I am currently using a BenQ w1070 PJ, which is an entry-level model and, considering its price, is a good performer. However, it is substantially below the quality level of all my other gear. It does have the great virtue of perfectly filling my 92 inch screen from a distance of 8.5ft though ;)
To give an indication of what I would have bought if I did not have these constraints, it would probably have been the JVC DLA-X55.
I am wondering if anyone knows of a much more 'high-end' PJ (up to about $5,000) that either has a native throw ratio that will permit a 92 inch (diagonal 16:9) image from a distance of 8.5ft, or if anyone knows of such a PJ that can accommodate a short throw accessory lens?
I am new to PJs and, having had the experience of the big picture, I am hooked - but I would love a substantial increase in quality, especially wrt to black levels. I am used to extremely good black levels from a Pioneer Kuro and a Panasonic VT60.
Any help or advice would be gratefully received.
