Hi All, Im looking for help, viewpoints, guidance on the following. I am having building work done and my cinema/office room will be approximately 14-15 x 9 wide. I am to have the kit at one end of the room and the PJ at the other. The aim is to have a new rack with all the kit including a widescreen TV (which I have already) and then a manual pull down screen above. This seems the best of both worlds in my eyes (electric screen seems an expensive when I can just get off my lazy behind and pull the screen down or are there hidden benefits I am missing here?). I am looking at the AE700 but am open to suggestions for other projectors. I have been considering plasma (and still am I change my mind like the wind ) but a HD plasma is going to run close to the 4k mark with warranty stand etc. (so new DVD/Scaler/AMP is gonna be 6k+ :O). So if a PJ gives me best of both worlds (with my TV) then I will be a happy bunny. I already have the following equipment:- AMP- Denon 3802 (no up conversion or audio delay (afaik)). Am seriously considering moving to a 3805 so I can put all the stuff into this and convert to component. It also has the benefit of audio delay. Now! Is this a good idea or am I better off spending a similar amount of money on a scaler? Is audio delay an issue with projectors - tbh I haven't seen any problems on my friends 6 series panny so.. DVD Pioneer 606D This is an old DVD player (around 5 years) but has served me well. Its multi region but it is an American player not a chipped/modded UK player. It has S-video and component outputs (but its not progressive scan). I have been considering Denon 3910 as its HDMI/DVI and has up scaling abilities and can also link to the Denon Amp quite nicely (3805), I am drawn to this because of the up scaling abilities and it seems to have a top notch feature set but again am I better advised using the old DVD into a scaler? However having read potential DVI problems with a Panasonic plasma would I suffer the same problem with a projector? Do I need progressive scan capable player? Consoles & PC. My PC has DVI & VGA outputs so this should not be a problem. The consoles can be routed through the Amp or scaler I would presume. Aims for the projector: - Xbox, Gamecube, PS2, DVD Movies & PC usage. Im not bothered about TV at the moment as I can use the TV for that anyway and I dont fancy a 6ft Dot Cotton on my screen . I may solve this at a later date by adding a DVD recorder (Sony or Panasonic) but not too sure atm. Given the room size and that I will be ceiling mounting (or a shelf at the back of the room) what are peoples recommendations for screen size? Apart from the cleaning which Ive read about and replacement lamps every so many hours are there any other maintenance/worries I should be aware of? Whilst the building work is being done I am going to run cables through the ceiling. I am currently looking at say 8m component run and 8m HDMI / DVI run. I know the AE700 has a HDMI port but am I better running DVI and using an adaptor or run HDMI cable direct (can you convert HDMI to DVI? It carries audio aswell I understand). The PC will near the projector so I can run a VGA cable to deal with that. And finally can anyone recommend a dealer with decent demo facilities in the Midlands (I am in the Coventry area) - I don't mind travelling too far (probably 70-80 miles I would have said maximum). I know Avland according to their web site have are not too far away and have a AE700 in their demo room and I will be contacting them but its always best to see as many different setups as possible before committing. Many thanks.
