Unlike many on this forum, I am unskilled in architecture, carpentry, contracting, speaker building and projector choosing. I have opted to pay somebody else for my ignorance. Computer security? I'll be your man. Building a theater? Here's my wallet. Well, when we went to the place that will be setting up our smarthome, and hiring the subcontractor to build our theater, we sat in their test theatre. I was blown away and my wife and I both had to check for the projector, because their 142" DNP screen looked so much like a huge HD LCD. Well the guy shows us how great it is in the light, which was cool. Then I asked the price- I audibly gagged I was told later. I've since looked around, but as I said, my knowledge is limited. I asked my wife how often we'd honestly have any lights on in a windowless basement room while watching something. "All the time, especially when we have kids in there so we can watch them, or if we entertain." Is there a similar option for a more reasonable price if I'll apparently be having a semi lit theater?
