I can't comment on you actual question but to me $5800 for a tiny 83" TV seems like a waste of budget.New poster here, thank you in advance for any help. I apologize if this is not the correct subforum to post this on:
We are making one of our basement rooms into a media room. The room is about 13.5 feet X 17.5 feet with 9 feet ceilings.
We will be putting up an 83 inch OLED on the wall. That costs about $5800 plus tax. We have a roughly 10-12k budget overall (not accounting for seating), meaning after the OLED we'd have roughly 4-6k left over for speakers, receiver, bluray player, Apple TV 4k, etc.
Question for you all: does such a breakdown in budget make sense (about 50% for the TV and 50% for the remainder)? Further, how would you further break down the remaining 4-6k of the budget? For what it's worth, because of our room size, we will likely be doing a 5.1 system. Most likely only one subwoofer (unless this is nuts in this room size).
I am new to the home theater world and what I'm trying to avoid is overspending on one particular component at the sacrifice of some other component, and thereby bottlenecking the overall system in some weird way.
You could have a very good projector and a 120" drop down screen for that price and add inexpensive large TV for lights on events (behind the drop down screen).. Yes this would require more time and research to learn about projectors and other things (room environment) that impact the image or projection, so maybe not your cup of tea but figured I would mention it. I can tell you a 83" would be nice, but would not be very immersive.12' or 14' seating distance..
Good luck with your project, it will be a journey no matter what you do! One day I hope to be able to build an entire room like you are about to do, but for now I make do with 120" screen and 2:1 in my living room.
