Well, I've been lurking around this forum for 18 months now so its time to post now. I've been interested in the NEC1000 since CEIDA, and now since its out, I don't know if its going to work in my room. I have read many threads on the small clearance for a center channel speaker, but I want to be sure about my screen height before order. I have an eight foot ceiling, projecting an 106'' diag screen using a ceiling mount. If I understand correctly I will have 22'' from the bottom of the screen to the floor. I would like to stay away from keystoning, or tilting the screen if possible. Thanks in advance, and I would also like to add this is a great forum.
