Hey guys could appreciate your experience and feedback on this. \n\nI have a large room open floor plan 8500 cubic feet of air with seating 14 ft back from the front wall where the TV is. As you can see in the pic my TV I brought over when I bought this house a year ago is ridiculous sitting up there. 55inch 1080p Samnsung nice TV tho. Just too small. Especially as I upgrade my equipment.\n\nI'm not crazy about 4k I think the HDR is the best thing about it. I think picture quality I won't notice much. I don't think my eye is good enough to see a difference. \n\nWhat I have always wanted is a projector. I even like the look of them. Sometimes I feel the high def tv's get a little too high def? If you know what I mean. I don't need to see every grain in the color of your eye. I miss the soft look of the cinema screen would like to replicate it in my home. \n\nThat front wall is huge and would easily fit a big big screen. As my system gets better I would like the visual experience to match the audio experience that is developing. \n\nI currently have a denon X4400H paired with 3 SVS prime towers for my F C L I have 4 Elan Theaterpoints thp650sl for surrounds. And 4 RSL c34e's as my surrounds. I'm running amps the 1002 XLS crowns for the fronts and an Emotiva UPA-7 for the surrounds and heights. I have 2 PB 4000's SVS subs behind both couches Near field. \nI plan to upgrade to 3 SVS ultra towers for the front 3 move the prime towers for surrounds to lower the surrounds for separation from my heights. Keep the C34E's. Love them.\n\nI like the idea of a big screen for the row of seats stretching across the theater area. I shop at Bjorn's a lot and am currently exploring the idea of a drop down projector to cover the TV. This way I can use the TV during the day but also since I love movies so much use the projector at night. Also if I want to upgrade the TV later to an oled or something when the prices make more sense I can do so. \n\nI initially thought short throw but it seems like having a short throw with a drop down screen is a nightmare due to the need for maximum flatness on the screen. I'm not averse to moving that ceiling fan over to the other table. And I'm not averse to having a long throw projector. I also don't have to have the best of the best just something for good value that puts out a solid enjoyable 1080p experience. My budget would be $3-5,000 tops. \n\nAny feedback would be great. If this is a great idea great if not it's either 3000 for last year's Sony 85inch or 5000 for this years version. Really want to explore my options before I do this tho. \n\nHere's my room pics thank you for your time.
