You have a wonderful system and glad to see you made the move into 235:1 land
Here are Mastercut details.

-JVC HD350 projector
-Aussiemorphic Projector station
Overall satisfaction 9/10. For once after having finished watching a movie I have come out of the room feeling like I have just been to a commercial cinema. You cant go wrong with quality big sound and big cinemascope image.
-viewing distance 3 meters (9')
-Projector Throw distance 4.6m
-screen size 110" diagonal or 110cm in viewable height
-Calculator says zoom is around 1.2, no sign of vignetting.
screen install was slightly tricky in geting the vinyl tight with out any
creases. Using a hammer to push in the screen grip caused the vinyl to rip
some how in one spot under the grip, but lukily there was some slack and
tightness was achieved with only 30% doubling up on the screen gripping.
Better to use your thumbs. The velvet really makes a difference in
over scanning the image and creating super sharp black edges. Especially useful for calibrating noobs like me who just want to get into watching movies straight away.
Projector station was a bitch to install in a retrofit situation where there
was no access to the ceiling and was a bit fiddly with all the nuts and bolts.
Make sure you have all the right tools. I recomend bolts that can be tightened with your fingers like those cashew nut shaped ones. All I had was one ceiling batten to bolt into. Ended up using three bolts all in a line which
unfortunately didn't prevent the front corner of the projector stations top
plate drooping 10mm from the ceiling under the weight of the projector and
lens. Recommend to leave lens in place and not use slider. Alloy would be
better material than perspex in this situation or another ceiling batten to
get rid of the flex.
lens does what it claims. I spent 10 minutes setting up. Still not perfect,
as I am getting un even pincushion effect on one side of the image. All four
sides are not perfectly square. I'll be needing forum help to get this working
right, I 'm not familiar with video calibration. Image lost a bit of
brightness, but that doesn't matter, you should be watching movies in the dark anyway. Image lost a bit of focus which I didn't expect. Looked softer
compared without lens. Overall once the movie starts and you stop analysing
and start enjoying you won't notice anything wrong.
JVC projector is frakin amazing. thanks all for the recommendation. This is the
For those still reading and interested in my full HDMI audio setup here it is:
-VAF 7 channel DCX series speakers with active Velodyne 15" sub woofer. Big centre speaker very important for movies.
-Pioneer LX70 receiver. HDMI switching and plenty of juice for the speakers.
-Oppo bluray player. Good scaling of DVDs to 1080p and vertical stretching for scope setup. Awesome audio, better than my PS3.
-Another cheapo pioneer amp for driving 3 Bass transducers under the coach
On to the show. A few pictures of the home theater room.
