O.K. folks,

Here's the topic of discussion.......ready?

1- You have $25,000.00 at retail/list price(yes I know none of us would ever pay list, just humor me)to spend on a projector, scaler/doubler, and fixed screen

2- Items must be new, widely avaiable, with manufacturer support

3- No HTPC. Sorry, I know all the reasons why, but it must be a scaler manufactured by a known, reputable (yes I know that may be debatable) company.

4- Main sources in order of use: DVD,HDTV,SAT,VHS

5- Ambient room light is not an issue.

6- 110"-120" 16:9 screen

7- Setup of system must be relatively straightforward with little maintanence after setup (other than normal calibration, etc.)

8- System must easily switch between 4:3 and 16:9


Ready?..........GO!

A few things you might mention:


1) How important is cost of operation? (Re: Bulbs)

2) Will you be using other output devices (i.e. projectors) with the scaler?

You're asking for a simple opinion here without doing any homework apparently so...


Its a matter of what I would buy with the bucks..so here goes...


A G15 D-ILA (get it calibrated or use Dilards gamma wizards on it)


Buy a Greyhawk


Buy a Vigatec combination DVD Player and scaler


Any other questions? Do a search on each or just buy 'em all http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
