  3. Home Theater Projectors
    My thrifted Optima HD70 just died and I am in need of a new projector! I am not looking for anything fancy, just 1080p and bright. Most of these are 3000 lumens and all are 1080p, much better than the old Optima’s 720p, 1000 lumens. I have narrowed it down to two projectors from three brands...

    John, Thanks for such a great product! Suggestion: The timing reference selection, Preferences > analysis > impulse response calculation > timing reference is not retained. It defaults to acoustic timing reference, which I never use, and I have to change it every time I start REW. Hopefully...
