Thanks guys for all of the input I really appreciate it. I ordered a Sim2 Mico 40 the other day and cannot wait to get my room done so I can see how it looks!

Re: $15,000 budget

Really, I don't see how anybody could make a recommendation based on the information given. A projection system is just that a system. You need to take into account screen size, screen gain, available throw distance, light control and ambient light in the room. You also need to know what the customer is wanting out of a projector. Is he looking for a 2D projector for movies. Is he looking for a projector geared toward sports? What about 3D. All of these variables have to be taken into account.

Well... screen is 108" diagonal scope, curved with firehawk G3 material. Isco III A-lens with sled. Room is completely light controlled. Wife does like to watch casually (some lights on) while using her laptop. What I want:
-RAZOR SHARP 2D IMAGE!!!!!!!!
-Full control of colors (CMS)
-LED technology for years of trouble free use
-Control4 compatable
-good motion handling (read NFL)
-internal scaling a plus
-backing and support of custom installer
-16ft - 18ft throw
-anything else important I am missing

I totally agree with this post, especially nowadays with new technology that has come into play. And what i mean by nowadays is the last 3 or so years. You need to match the hatch. $15,000 is too much money to waste. Sounds like you are treading softly and thats a great thing.I will be going down this same path very soon and l will be starting with Simm also.

Re: $15,000 budget

As an installer the one brand that seems to stick out and grab my attention in homes as far as being one of the best pictures would be any of the upper end JVC DILA's but that is just my opinion.

I looked at the rs65 but felt the picture didn't have that crispness associated with a single chip projector plus the motion handling for NHL and NFL was borderline atrocious. I will say the rs65 had a decent black floor but still feel a high end dlp will have better in-scene contrast (doesn't matter to me if it is actual or just perceived). I was able to see the JVC and a Q750 side by side and felt the runco just demolished it (personal opinion I know).

Re: $15,000 budget

The JVC has a better on/off cr, which is its claim to fame. If you can live with the lower on/off cr of a good dlp, then I think they are the better tech.
