Please help with projector selection
 

I am designing a theater room that is about 11' wide and 30' Long. I would like to have a 100'' screen (black diamond). Any recommendation on a quality projector in the 2,000.00 range?

Well I guess my question would be why your question (What is wrong with your room/setup that you would need that type of screen?) This is my first design. Is this a specialty screen for bad apps? This is a dedicated theater (so I'm not limited).I'm trying to create with moderate knowledge. I'm looking for a REALLY NICE picture. I'm in the first stages of the process of hopefully creating a nice home theater. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!!

Mech has done reviews on both screens - you should be able to find them in this forum. If I recall correctly, the BD either did not perform well or they did not want to send him a sample - apologies, it has been a while since I read them.

The Supernova on the other hand is Mech's "dream" screen - definitely give the review a read.

Apologies Mech for stealing your thunder. :R

At that price point, your options are really limitless. Have you discussed your room with any theater design specialists?

With regards to the Black Diamond, why did you settle on that screen already? What is wrong with your room/setup that you would need that type of screen?

I have not talked with a specialists. In your opinion what is the best screen for a low light, controlled theater?

For a dedicated theater, epson's 8700ub is a steal right now if you can still find one. 2d only, but less that 2k that picture is really tough to beat.

I just bought the Epson 3010. It's amazing!! It is 2d and 3d. If you have a 3 d disc it will down grade it to 2d if you don't want the 3d effect. Also, it has a great throw ratio. I have a 14x16 room and I have a perfect 100 in picture!
