I see that you many years ago had moved from a Sony VPL600 to the new JVC. I am contemplating the same move and am very concerned about fan noise from the projector. The distance from my head to my projector is about the same as yours and I can BARELY hear the Sony at low fan while a movie is playing. What is your experience making the upgrade? How much louder is the JVC? Do you find the increase in noise objectionable?
Thanks for your reply, your theater truly deserves to be the “theater of the month”
