I do realize it’s personal preference. Where would this distance be analogous to sitting in a commercial theater ? 1/4 of the way back ?
Honestly, if you want to benefit from native 4K, that seating distance seems about right. I'd say you want to be *inside* 1 screen width away. Forget what you typically see in the theater. Those theaters are not centered around benefiting from 4K resolution and are typically not even 4K.
