Also, being able to use the projector's built-in sound bar as a centre channel would just be perfect in our usage, too!
I have a really specific use case that I don't know if it's just stupid of me to think of... Poking around in the manual I see it's an option to have audio play through the built in speaker and optical out simultaneously. Has LG ever done something like that where you're able to use the built in speaker as the center channel in a surround setup?
I remember reading that the OLED R allowed its built in speakers to be used as a center channel via WiSA and ever since then it got my brain spinning at the idea cutting down the number of components in my living room.
I am in exactly the same boat as you. I am thinking this is the projector for us, as well. I would have liked to use the Screen Innovations Solo Pro 2 as well, but for some reason, when I build it in the maximum size allowable to the Short Throw material (100", unfortunately), the maximum drop decreases to two inches, which just does not work for us in our application.
I am now thinking about using this lenticular floor riser screen, which I can get in 120" size.
(This was offline as I write this, but hopefully just a glitch from their end). Pricing is pretty excellent, obtained through Amazon.ca.
I can find very few, if any, reviews on it, but I really like the idea of building it into a floating shelf that is bolted to the wall, with the screen rising up in front of a window.
Any thoughts, from anyone? Ideally, LG would make the rollable TV in 100" size, but I think that even in their 65", pricing is going to be astronomical!
I am likely going to hold off until I can see a review with the LG vs the Optoma P1, but am excited that it is getting close!!
