Admittedly, I am a novice to the HT world. Never the less, we our in the process of building a dedicated home Theater in our house, which is currently under construction. I have been doing a lot of research concerning which projector to go with. We were initially leaning toward a Runco CRT, DTV950, which was offered to us for $12,990. After you figure in the image scaler, $2,599, our total cost would be $15,589.00. We were told that CRTâ€™s are very temperamental and we should look at the DLP line of projectors. After comparing several DLPâ€™s in our price range it came down to the Runco VX-100c and the sharp XV-Z9000U. Runco is about $7,000 more money and I am not sure it is worth it. Video is very important to my wife and I. We would appreciate any advise, comments or suggestions. Thank you!
