I am considering ordering the new AE4000U. I will be purchasing a 16:9 106" electric screen to go with it. My main viewing will be games and movies. My HT is also my living room so it is not light controlled although most viewing will be done at night. I sit 12 - 14' from the screen. Viewing angle is not a problem as all seats are well within the narrowest angle. I think you will reccomend some screen gain but I don't want to see any blooming or hot spots at night when the lights are out and the room becomes light controlled. I guess I am looking for the best compromise between my two viewing conditions. Thanks for the help.
