By the way, I'm sold on Ultra HD. So much for not being able to resolve the extra detail. Enough difference with a decent screen size at a reasonable distance. I'll still wait until a format sorts itself out, but wow on the demo.

I am both excited and sad to hear that. My eyes are giddy with anticipatory glee, but my budget is complaining louder than ever.

"decent" and "reasonable"?

Part of the reason I've always loved Charles is that he's not all sciencey and stuff.

I guess I could justify it for a projector. But it seems like you'd have to be ~7' or closer to a 65" panel to resolve the difference compared to 1080p. IF you have good eyesight.

I do hope it comes to market, though, so I can get a good deal on the old technology.

Ha ha ha. Yeah, I serve no practical function. But yeah, I would need it to be a projector, too, simply because the LFR1100s are going to push me further away from the screen once I'm in my larger space, I'm sure.

With all that gear you should really rent yourself an old movie theater and convert it to an apartment. Don't know if they would let you put in a gator pit though...

grin Would be nice! There's a theater down the hill from me that closed down a while back. One corner of it is a restaurant now, but I have no idea how the space inside is being used.

Bonus score on the restaurant. Now you don't need space for a kitchen. laugh

You can buy that from me if you want.

Last month I bought an 'old technology' Sony 55" HX850 for close to a thousand off the original price. Rave reviews all over the net on this model & I'm more than happy - no regrets at all.

Basically they were clearing them out at the end of the model year. Grab them while they last...
