, I finally managed to pull off my setup in an apartment – I have a living room which is about 15 feet long by 13 feet wide. I already have a Panasonic VT-50 65” plasma mounted on the wall. To it, I added an electric drop down CIH Projection screen by Elite. I’m using a Cine Tension2 115” Diagonal screen. My sound system comprises of 2 RF-82’s II as my FL, and FR, RF-62 II as my center and RF-42’s as my surround. All this is driven by my Denon AVR-3313ci . The sub I’m using is an old Denon sub that came with my 5.1 system from years ago. I have to upgrade but I am undecided on which sub to go with - SVS, Epik, HSU or Outcast.
Having 2 HDMI outputs helps as I can seamlessly change from watching stuff on my TV to the projector without having to switch cables manually. The projector I am using is an EPSON 3010 – I have it sitting on a bracket above me. In order to get the 2.35 Aspect ratio to work, I had to place the projector upside down; I was told that I need keystone correction and I never understood the concept so I managed to find a work around. I do have the projector zoomed in to fit the screen and I intend to use the screen only for 2.35:1 movies. The movies look fantastic but I do have some overscan – there is a thin rectangular bar that appears below the screen which is more visible during the night but I hardly notice it. Also, the picture doesn’t fit my screen completely, there is a hair’s breadth of the screen not covered fully by the projector but again, it is unnoticeable. If you guys have any recommendations, I’d love to hear them.
I’ve attached a few photos. If anyone has any specific questions, feel free to PM me and I’ll be happy to share more details.
Thanks again for all the suggestions!
PS. as you can see, using the PS3 as the blu-ray player means that I have to put up with the 16:9 image when I'm trying to browse or select a movie from amazon prime or netflix
