Most of us feel as good about Home Theater in a Box as we do about meals at a drive-thru. Epsonís Ensemble HD system takes all the convenience of HTiB but brings the weight of its brand behind a projector that fits elegantly behind a complete home theater system. Epson has just announced that its Ensemble HD just been rebooted with its new projectors at the heart of its unique systems.

In my life I've seen hi-fi evolved into Home Theater shifting emphasis to the "home" a little more. It seems natural. Hi-fi always had 'room' treatments and considerations. But some HT mags are all about the home decor etc. It's an interesting mix. This is the first product I've heard of that combines the two.
Sorry, I know it doesn't answer your questions.

As noted in the article it's a bit silly that they didn't include a BD player in the package. It's 1080p but then you have to add your own BD player? Either that or settle for the included SD DVD player? Nice try but - "no cigar".
Certifiable Home Theater Systems Nut
I had a chance to see this at the Audioholics SOTU last year. I thought it would be a pretty cool setup for a bedroom or for a living room with huge amounts of WAF to deal with.
Granted, the projector with rear channel speakers in the same housing isn't exactly a small easily hidden package to mount on the ceiling. But the speaker inside the screen housing is a nice touch.
