Hey guys need advice on this. I made a thread few years ago about a projector on here but few years later I’m seriously wanting to not use my 65in tv and buy a projector and screen.\nMy room is 13w x 19L with two rows of seats. First row sits almost 9ft from tv now and second row is almost 14ft from tv. I do have control of lighting where my system is setup with no light bleed from the rest of lights in basement. \nThe majority of my watching habits are movies with occasional college football and maybe some tv but since I work nights when I do go down there it’s mainly movies. And when wife and kids are down there we’re watching movies together.\nNow I know 16x9 is recommended but I have 8ft ceilings and where my tv wall is now I can not fit 16x9 due to the height because of the soffits that cover my ductwork. I have a soffit on the left and right side of my room and where the tv is now, the width of a 2.35:1 screen fits perfect in there with a 96in diagonal screen and the height will work also. Everything I’ve read suggests I should go with a white screen but would like advice on this. I also can not go wider on the screen because my ductwork on the right side angles down with drywall.\nThe projectors I’ve been looking at are the epson 4050, 5050 and 6050 because of the lens zoom I would need for the 2.35:1 screen but I know certain jvc ones have lens zoom too. I’m leaning towards the epsons because of budget. So I will also need advice on projector. \nThe main reason I’m looking at buying a projector\/screen is because the research I’ve done, it’s telling me that I could buy a 77in OLED or 85in lcd and spend pretty much the same amount of money vs a projector\/screen and I would not have the wow factor of buying the tv. This to me makes no sense to buy a tv and would be better off with the projector\/screen. \nBut like the thread title reads, is it even worth it with only being able to have a 96in diagonal screen. This is where I need your guys advice and experiences plz, thx.
