Need recommendations for short-throw PJs for new HT room
I am in the midst of planning my 2nd HT room and I am looking for a good quality short-throw PJ that is capable of throwing a 100-110” image from 7-8 feet. Ceiling joists are 91” off the slab so my final finished ceiling height will be in the 89-90” range depending on how many layers of drywall I go with. I have a boxed out I-beam running across the center of the room - the front edge of the box (drywall) is exactly 9’ from the screen wall and the bottom is 80" off slab. I would like to mount the PJ in front of the boxed-out beam so ideally I would need a PJ that could throw the image from 7' or so.
MLP will be right around 10'-11' so the boxed-out beam is just above the front row of seating.
Does a PJ like that even exist? My previous PJ was an EPSON 5030UB - obviously not a short-throw. Would like something of the same quality or better.
My budget is $4K. Thanks in advance for recommendations.
