My situation is a smallish 17' x 13' basement HT in progress with a short 10' viewing distance planned for the 1st row. I am hoping to use an 80" wide screen (a 1.5X's viewing-to-width ratio) for a cinematic feel (and a THX suggested 37 degree angle).


My viewing is split fairly evenly between DVD, Xbox, and satellite (DTC100 HDTV). Lately more and more of my satellite and Xbox viewing is in high def, so I am afraid to drop down to VGA or 1/4HD resolution. (Currently I have a 1024x1024 pixel 42" Sony plasma that is drop-dead gorgeous with HDTV, but displays DVD poorly, and of course is too small.)


I was lured in by the $1000 X1 hype, but soon turned toward the 16:9 native Z1, until SDE fears pushed me toward the L300. A $1600 L300 is awfully tempting, but word of the Z2 & L500 with 720p and price points around $2K certainly have my attention.


Any thoughts from the collective wisdom of the under $5000 crowd here would be appreciated.
