What would be the recommended viewing distance for a 26" LCD and a 32" LCD?
Around 1m to 1.5M
in what hifi magazine (albeit in an Empire Direct promotional section), they say
28-32" 16:9 set, viewing distance 2.5-3m
36-42" 16:9 set, viewing distance 3-4m
I currently sit about 4m away from our TV, so just the excuse to get a bigger one!
1m for a 32"?!
I like my eyes working.
depends also on what you're watching. on freeview, 2m for a 32" is really too close, so you can see the artifacts quite well. For DVDs, 2m is sort of OK, though 3 to 4m would still be fine. Depends how much "absorption" you want.
A simple rule of thumb that works every time:
*three times the diagonal of the set*
Try it. Never look back.
Personally I'd say 2x diagonal for HD content, 3x or more for SD/ED content.
