Would someone be able to do a test on the throw ratio from 17' for one of these pjs. I would like to know what size screen from 17' you would have to have. I know what the book says but that sometimes LIES. The actual test is what matters. Thanks.
The throw distance for the ht300+ is as advertised. Mine is mounted at 15.7' from the screen and the min/max image sizes are consistent with the zoom range. (to within my ability to measure with a tape measure.)

I have a homemade 102"x49" (2.08:1) screen. The advertised throw ratio for the ht300+ is 1.8-2.4 (thus zoom=1.33). Actually my mounting distance is 15.6'. The image can be zoomed from 78" wide to 104" wide.
I hadn't really checked on the sim. I didn't realize the throw was that big (2.4). Do you know what the db level is supposed to be on that pj as compared to the 10k? I am curious about it. ALso how does the sim compare the the 10k in picture quality?
I have the Sim2 300+ and I don't find the noise level objectionable. I'm using a 72" wide screen with the projector almost 14' back. As for picture quality, check out the latest Stereophile Guide to Home Theater. They just did a review.
