    I currently own a panny 500ae and a 106 inch screen , im very happy with it.
    Problem is im soon moving to a new apartment, and the bloody living room doesnt have a single wall without a door, window or crevice of some sort making it not only difficult to hang the screen but making it almost impossible to place out/hang the speakers (i use a 6.1 setup).
    Im gutted to say the least , but now on to my question .

    If you had to sell your projector, what would you get to replace it?

    cheers

    you should have moved to an appartment that will accomodate the pj and speakers... did you not see the place before you decided to move :devil: ;)

    looks like it will have to be huge 50" or above plasma/dlp tv....nothing else comes close.

    Surely I'm not the only one who chooses flats based on home cinema requirements?

    If I were you I'd buy a portable screen and a portable projector stand, and if necessary stick to stereo rather than surround.

    In terms of screen size, whatever you get will be a disappointment compared to a projector. Biggest TV you can get is the Optoma 65", but it has troubles with NTSC, as it's optimised specifically for PAL. In the near future Toshiba and Samsung are promising 60+" DLP RPTVs.

    I think at the moment I'd buy a Sagem 56" DLP RPTV as the best all round large TV. Bigger, better picture, and much cheaper, than any Plasma.

    Regards

    Mark

    Get a blackout blind recess mounted in the window and have a slimline screen that can roll down infront of the blind, that's what I've done to get round my window. I can send you a picture if you like. For the sound sell your speakers and buy a set of KEF eggs, small enough to put up in almonst any room and still great sounding.
