    I just ordered the SONY VPLHS3 projector. It's supposed to arrive beginning of november. First question: is it good?
    I also ordered surround sound system SONY DAV-S888. It's looks good. I'm not sure about the screen, possibly a 96 inch.
    My main question is: do you know who I should speak to to get the system installed. I think I can just have the projector on a shelf. I'm not good at all this technological stuff, so I would like someone to do it. I live in the Manchester area.
    I got quoted £500 by practical Hi Fi. It is supposed to be quite easy to setup with side shot. Apparently any sort of angle works. But I have been told you lose quality if it is not centered.
    What should I do?

    erm i would read some more threads but you may find yourself revaluating your recent order in particluar the DAV888.

    as for installation look at the CEDIA UK site for installers but you should be able to do it your self if you are ok with a bit of DIY
