OMG!!!! how much did you pay for it?

for a 70-80" shld be SGD3k .. anyway the larger size dont really mean more expensive for stewart screens..

I got my firehawk 80" 2 yrs back for ard $3k+ .. cannot remember the exact amount already. Made to order if they dont hv the typical size.. so once deposit paid, they will sent from US and reach here ard 4-5 days.

here a older pic..

wow, looks impressive. but my problem is I can't use fixed screen for the limited "TV" area. Need to adopt a 42" or 50" Plasma at the same time, that's why need a mobile type of pull down type of screen lor....

Pull down type seems better but scared it make the place ugly leh...

quick question guys. I am building a home theater room and I have around 3.6m to where I will be sitting. I was recommended a 90inch(max) given I will be watching movie and playing FPS games. Apparently more than 90inch at this distance with FPS games will make one giddy. Anythoughts here? thanks

yes... google for viewing distance.. THX got a recommendation.

Dont think ur wall can take big means u must max it.. else yes, will make u very very uncomfortable .. some ppl even wanna puke after watching a movie.

Assuming you have light coloured walls, why don't you put up all the other equipment first, project onto the wall where you intend to put the screen, and adjust the image till it suits you. Then measure the approximate viewing size and buy a screen to match?

Question

In the process of setting up my "low cost" "high impact" Home Theatre System.

Just placed an order for a Dell 2400MP Projector
Next, a Creative Giaworks S750 7.1 speaker set and a DDTS-100 decoder.
Finally a simple pull down projector screen.

Total Cost:
$1549 for the projector + $100 for wiring
$799 + 299 for the speakers + DTS decoder
$399 for a 96x96 Lav manual projector screen.
S$3046.

The diagonal 4:3 image is 120", 16:9 image is 110"

Will be running the multimedia from a multi-format Ichiban DVD mini-hifi player (plays Mpeg4), a DIY media PC + a DIY 1TB Multimedia File Server (4 x 250GB in RAID 0).

Will post images once project is completed
Hey DL,

Can you introduce me to the one who helped you do the whole set up?
