Finishing the basement, wife agreed to put in a home theatre set up ( more like media room ). Far from a black hole, will be light controlled but light walls ceilings, etc ( no chance in hell it will be dark/Wife :( ). This will be my first projector set up. Looking at a 100" screen (Elunevision Reference 4k) will be sitting at least 10Ft from screen. My back wall will be 15ft from the screen, ceiling height 7 or 7.5 ft. Will most likely be a projector I will use for a very long time, meaning no upgraditis.
I am lucky that the wife even agreed to this as originally we only discussed finishing the basement, no home theater. So would Epson 6030UB be a good choice? Would it even be worth it to spend the extra and get the JVC DLA X500? Mostly 2D movie watching, do have alot of 3D movies lately but mostly watch 2D. My theatre set up in the family room currently has Panasonic 65ST50. I know the Sony 50/55es is well reviewed also but I believe the 3D is IR and I already have lots of glasses RF Glasses which will work with the Epson and JVC. The Epson I can get for less than the Sony. The JVC will be the MAX I would be able to stretch my dollar but only if there would be a noticable improvement in picture.
Any thoughts, recommendations? I know that the Epson 5030UB retails for less but the price I can get the 6030 for makes it a no brainer.
Thanks in advance.
