Question re Wiring for New JVC 4K Projector

Wow, my first post, been reading these forums non-stop the last month! This place is incredible!



We just moved into a house with a previously-built dedicated theater room, true build with black ceiling, dark walls, 110" screen and a lot of speakers, at least 7 I can see plus sub, etc. No ambient lighting from windows, and all the speakers, screen, etc are in place still. I need to buy a projector and have resolved to purchase an NX5 or NX7. My question is this - the theater is already wired with those blue HDMI 2.0 cables in the walls and ceiling to connect from the mount (15' throw or so) to a panel room about 23-24 feet away. Given the investment in 4K, is it worth it now to go back and put in something like Ruipro cables to improve the signal/quality or perhaps an Atlona base? I will be adding a 4K UHD blue ray and eventually a new receiver, but if I am going to open anything up, I want to know if I need to upgrade wiring too.



Thanks!

Do you know what was in there before? Probably a 1080p projector. It is likely you will have to upgrade your hdmi cables if you want 4k @60 fps with full 18gpbs bandwidth and overall reliable connection from more than about 20 feet away. Also, I think the JVC NX5 or NX7 would be a great choice, depending on your budget. Additionally, you may want to research on here about acoustically transparent screens and setup a screen wall where you can have your speakers behind the screen. That would let you have a bigger screen and put the sound/dialog directly at ear level.

Thanks for your reply. The previous projector was a JVC RS50U, looks like 1080 to me.

I would bet dollars to donuts that you will have to switch out the HDMI cable.
