Need recommendation on projector
Hoping to get some recommendations for projector options to go into an existing home theater. Currently has a Runco VX-44d with lens slide with an approx. 25’ throw to a 156” diagonal 2.35:1 screen that has triggered drop down masking for 16:9.
The run i is a light canon but due to some ongoing issues it is necessary to replace it. Without stepping into the $40-$50k price range for Barco 4k or the Sony 5000es, are any of the lower end projectors capable of throwing this distance and screen size while maintaining decent light output?
Not really concerned with HDR or even 4k for that matter, but not looking to put in some old 1080p commercial unit.
Am I crazy in thinking that a JVC, or some of the lower tier Sony units can work in there?
