Been a while. Happy to be back and in the middle of a basement renovation to include a projector and ~120" screen.
Looking for some feedback. Was all set to buy a VPL-VW295ES, but came across a deal for the 695ES for ~$6k. Good deal?
Not married to Sony so I will definitely consider other options. I know just enough to know that I don't know much!
Setup will be in a room shared with a bar. dark gray drop ceiling, dark espresso wood panels behind the screen.
Don't really know what screen to buy. The Da-Lite cinema contour was suggested.
Here is a rendering from the bar area. Will be used for both live sports and movies.
Not much ambient light. Lighting will be dimmable LED wafers.
So, need a screen, a projector to start. Will worry about audio once I select the projector and screen.
Reading through some of these threads is overwhelming with information.
Looking for a good deal on a native 4k setup, and it does not need to be the least expensive, just want value if I can find it.
I want to make a decision soon as construction is entering the finishing phase soon and I want to be ready to go!
Also should note that sources will be DirecTV, Roku Ultra (hardwired), 4k blu-ray (TBD
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
