Thinking about a buying a projector
I have a movie room in my basement, and there are no windows, so it's pitch black. The walls and ceiling are painted with a color called Peppercorn, which is a very dark flat gray. The room is 13' deep, and 15' wide. I have 4 movie recliners against the back wall, that are directly facing the wall that my TV is mounted now. I currently have the XBR-65X850C, but I'd like to go bigger. I was looking at the XBR-85X900F, but I'm not sure if I want to spend close to $4k. My son was over and suggested I get a projector. I definitely want something that does 4k, and good HDR. I'm an avid PS4 gamer, and watch a lot of movies and sports. Also, where I would mount the projector, I'd probably need a 25' HDMI cable to get to my AVR, which is hidden in a closet. Are 25' HDMI cables good, or do you lose some signal with that long run? Are there some good choices for projectors that will fit my needs? I've never had a projector, so will I be happy with the picture, since I'm used to watching LED TVs? Thanks
Edit: After much reading, Id say my needs would be a projector that can handle 4k, that can produce the largest screen, for around 11' viewing distance, with a budget under $3k. From wall to wall, the room is exactly 12'7". I'm saying 11' viewing, because when sitting in my movie chairs, your head is probably at least 12" from the back wall, and the screen mount would come in to play also.
