Re: How close do you sit to your video display?

Display: 65" Plasma
Distance from seating to Display: 8.5'
Room is only 13'W x 12'D, with display mounted to wall so there is not much room to work with. We would like an 80" display in this room, would work great.

Happy Listening!!! Listen with an open mind and heart!!!

Re: How close do you sit to your video display?

My HT setup is also my 2 channel setup so I've setup primarily for 2 channel audio rather than optimum viewing distance for my 47" display. In other words, I sit too far from my screen given its screen size.

Here's a really cool link that calculates how close you should be sitting for your given display size and how big the screen needs to be given your current seating distance.

Interested in what the average distance people view their video displays from.

To keep the information uniform please list in the following manner:

Display Type: example Projector / TV
Display Size: example 60"
Viewing Distance: example 10'



So far the survey has resulted in the following. Hoping to get enough input to create a generally recommended viewing distance based on display size based off of actual user data.

Projectors

Size Distance
92 12 / 9
100 10 / 12 / 11
106 10 / 12
120 12 / 14 / 11
134 14


TVs

Size Distance
40 9 / 11
42 12 / 12
46 10
50 15 / 8 / 9 / 7 / 10 / 10 / 12
52 9 / 11
54 10
55 11 / 11
58 7 / 6.5
60 7 / 12 / 12 / 12
61 8
64 8
65 9 / 13 / 10 / 8.5
67 13
70 10
73 8 / 11
75 12.5
82 12
*Updated* Anyone know (administrators?) why the option to edit my header post in the thread is no longer available.
