    Looking to buy my first Pj in this bugdet if possible, new ball game to me.
    Have 10.5 ft from Pj to screen with projector being off centre by 3 ft.
    Can fit 16.9 82 inch diag screen above fireplace ceiling mounted.
    Would source Arcam 89 player + sky? if poss.
    Is it worth it in this bugdet, would be grateful for any feedback.

    800 to 1400 is a very nice budget :)

    got myself a screen from these guys www.drhscreens.co.uk delivered in perfect condion 3 days after ordering

    and for a pj i can highly recommend a z2, and im sure people will agree or maybe the z3 if you want to head towards the higher end of your budget, both can accomodate your lens shift requirements

    I ran my PTAE100 onto a white wall for 2 years 'till I finally bought a Beamax screen - in anticipation of getting a better projector where I wouldn't get away with it anymore.

    The point I'm trying to make is get the best PJ you can, shine it on a white wall if you have to and save up for a screen. You could regret scrimping on the PJ.

    You can get hold of a Sanyo Z3 or a Panny AE700 for 1250 or so and start your saving plan for the screen with the remaining 150.
