    Hi!

    I am in the process of building my first home cinema system. By now I managed to get a good sound, with a yamaha 530, 4 maganat floorstanders, 1 magnat center and 1 magnat sub, everything with enough power, freq range and sensibility. Everything hifi, but the bottom end... almost. Anyway, I am pretty satisfied with that. The point now is that I only have a 21'' tv, which doesn't really enhace the cinema feeling, as you can imagine. It is a kind of strange to hear all the things going on like if you were there, but at the same time you see that it is happening far away. I think that the best way to get rid of that is buying an entry level projector, but even there the prices are quite high, so I thought about second hand. Do you think it is worth?
    Also worth to say, I am in Germany, and I do not really know where can I manage to find reliable second hand sellers...
    I don't want the last detail of quality, just a fair big image that makes me feel there. Since my eyes are not that good, and my glasses do not help to make me feel they are, I do not care about the image as much as about the sound. My ears, that's were I got my sensitivity... And my girls know it... Ups, sorry, I wasn't really meaning that, but... Ok, please give me your opinions, they are all welcome.
    Thanks!

    Thanks!! Ok, then I may do it, but I will have to wait a little, I need some months to save more money.
    Anyway, at least I know I can afford it.
    It will be better than my tv, in any case :)

    One of the forum members called buns has a decent secondhand Sanyo PLV30, they are mega reliable and produce a great image without a lot of messing around. Not sure if hes still selling, but why dont you pm him.

    Ok, thanks. I may do it, but I do not expect anything, since his post is rather old, and in addition, as I said I am not in UK. Not to mention that I need to buy a laptop, so the projector must wait some months...
    Anyway, it is nice to get so much help. Thank you all!
