    I've been having fun with an Aaxa P300 for a few months now, but most of that has been outdoors or simply finding a suitable wall/ceiling inside. Now I've gotten to a point where I'd like to fix up a fairly dedicated "theater" room. The P300 is a three LED DLP business projector rated at a slim...
