There is one big problem. These 1700 doesn't have a predisposition for a floor or wall mount, so I don't know how to put them high enough to reach me and my clients ears. So if you could suggest me another pair of bluetooth/corded speakers, or how can I the 1700s it would be great.
OK, it is becoming more clear now.
I would speculate that these are your two low cost options.
Edifier R1700DB - €130/pr -
Edifier R1280DB - €128/pr -
The Edifier R1280DB
has Analog (RCA), Optical, and Coaxial Inputs,
which may not be important now, but it could be in the future.
Based on your current needs, the Edifier R1700BT
has 2xAnalog Input (PC, Aux) and Bluetooth.
That would server you for now.
Both should also have Bluetooth and a Remote Control.
I would be more inclined to recommend the Edifier R2000DB
, but that is considerably over budget.
Since both of the have Bluetooth Capability, it would be possible to get a Bluetooth Transmitter
for the Projector and pair that with the Speakers, and that would connect the Audio wirelessly. That might cost a bit more than Cable, which could be run along the ceiling beams, but Bluetooth would be a wireless connection.
There is a pretty wide range of Bluetooth Transmitters
available, just pick one that best fits your budget.
is a pretty good company and have been making Bluetooth Products for quite a while now -
Though there are certainly many others.
- while these are not the prettiest Stand, they are the cheapest and most heavy duty. These are Studio Monitor Stands
, and they can be found in most Musician Supply stores
From the Links above, the Studio Monitor Stands
are height adjustable, with a working range between 800mm and 1300mm
for the first Display4Top
Stand listed. They are all adjustable to varying degrees. Remember, most Musician Supply Stores
will have similar Stands.
Of course there are nicer looking Speaker Stands, but they tend to cost more money, though not always.
Most Hi-Fi Speaker Stands tend to be between 600mm and 800mm tall (24" to 32")
. Though some can go as high as 900mm (36"),
though they are a bit less common. For home use, probably 600mm and 700mm are the most common.
Maybe I could buy a more tall speaker (I don't know how they are called. Bookshelf maybe?) and place them at the sides of the backdrop? Like these...60W things
This link isn't working, at least, not for me.
Now for the questions:
What is the Source?
I'll try to connect a Steam Link
to the projector, that will clone via wireless my desktop from the pc, or maybe an Android TV box like the Nvidia Shield
or the Xiaomi Mi Box
or something like that.
Perhaps I don't understand this STEAM device, but I don't see how it solves your problem? Likely you could just put all your files on a USB Thumb Drive, and plug that into the projector. To make it easier, you could plug a USB extension cable into the Projector USB, and run it down the wall to a more easily accessible location.
I've never used the USB feature on most TV/Projectors, but from what I can tell it simply Auto-Plays the content in a loop. That does not give you much control, but you might be able to use the Projector Remote to skip through content to get to a specific piece. Again, I've not used this feature.
Alternately, probably the best would be a Laptop that has HDMI Out
connected to the Projector. Again, run a cable down from the Projector to a convenient location for the Laptop. I think the projector has VGA video, but that cable is going to be harder to find and more bulk.
The use of the projector, during the day when I receive my clients will be a loop of videos, according to the need of my clients. E.g. a couple that is going to get married come to my office, so the videos that loop will be my portfolio of wedding videos. Same for a client that need a commercial video or photos etc. They will sit on the sofa in the first picture, facing the photographic backdrop at around 13 feet from it.
Perhaps other can help you with the aspect of getting video from the Computer to the Projector
. My actual experience in this is limited, but perhaps others have done this. I know there is a way to sync a Phone and your TV, if both have the necessary features. But that is the key - if both have the necessary features.
The solutions you suggested transmit the Video Signal wirelessly,
that means the Projector would have to have or be adapted to receiver wireless signals. Again, I'm not going to be much help in this area.
It is going to be interesting to see what you come up with for this aspect - video from Computer to Projector.
Within reason, the other aspects seem to be solved, just a matter of making a decision. But the Video to Projector
seems unclear, at least to me, at this point.
Let's see what others have to say on this aspect.
