    i am thinking abut gettin a projecter
    along the lines of ptae 500 or z2 somthin like that.
    My seating area is about 2.5m away from where the screen would be. what size screen would be the best for this. or would it be to small.
    The screen could go back to about 3 meters againts the wall. but my MS908's are rear ported and i was goin to have the speakers in line with the screen.
    thanks
    DC

    I would think that you wouldn't want much more than 6ft at that distance.

    it would be 6 foot wide.

    screen door is an effect which results from the physical spacing between the pixels on the panel. This manifests as a screen door effect (a but like chicken wire). Dont worry however, at normal viewing distances it is not visible
