  1. Front Projector
     Selling my Sony VPL-VW600ES with under 1hr on the bulb. Some more important theater expenses related to my build have arisen. The projector has been sitting in its box as I build my theater, but It'll be a while until completion. I took it out for my unboxing video, and once more to update to...

    First: I am planning to replace my two years old Epson 3D Projector to SONY 4k Projector model VPL-VW1100ES. I know this projector is a monster in term of big size and heavy weight. My HT screen is 16:9 134” in size. My HT set up is Ceiling Mount projector. Due to high ceiling of HT room...

     I love New York City and take every opportunity to visit, which is why I was thrilled when I received an invitation to the Luxury Technology Show. It was a one-night event aimed at the press as well as well-heeled early adopters, held in the heart of Manhattan on March 4, 2014. The exhibitors...

    Thinking of that 720p vs 1080p test done in Greece many years a go its was proven that most people couldnt tell the difference. I cant help but think that when people go and demo the new VW1000 and VW11000 projectors that most of the detail of the image is due to the amazing quality of the...

     When Tom Norton invited me to check out the Sony VPL-VW600ES Ultra-HD/4K projector he was reviewing for Sound & Vision magazine, I jumped at the chance. I was particularly interested in comparing native UHD content with a Blu-ray of the same material upscaled by the projector, and Tom had set...

     Hi,    I am interested in installing the Sony VPL-VW600ES to the back wall of the Home Theater. Does anyone know how close to the back wall I can get for ventilation? Can anyone suggest a good mount for a back wall application? Thanks much, Greg

    Curious to know what others think about the Sony VW600ES vs. JVC DLAX700? For a cost efficient option, which of these would you go for and why?

    I'm in between these two projectors and am not sure I am getting accurate information? I have not seen these side by side so anyone who has seen them both your opinion is greatly appreciated. I know there is a slight price difference and I am ok with it but I'm being told the JVC has a smoother...

    "Once more unto the breach" About a year ago, we decided to sell our house and build a smaller home with a more efficient use of space. That meant saying goodbye to the Lewis Family Cinema, our first dedicated home theater. I started planning v2.0 while we were still contemplating whether or not...

I have a 158" 2.35:1 screen (biggest 2.35:1 that would fit my front wall), so I don't want to lose brightness. The minimum throw distance for a 158" 2.35:1 screen...
