Q: We are building a media room in our new house. Any thoughts on a large flat screen TV versus going with a projection system?
It would be great to get the input of a professional A/V installer/contractor. Any thoughts on a large flat screen versus a projection TV? Is Plasma still the best flat screen technology at larger sizes? Thoughts on brand/model for both projection and tv?
Also, any recommendations on sound systems would be terrific too.
A: TV Versus Projector/screen
OK here are the qualifying parameters:
Does your room have light control (blinds or window treatments?)Basically can you get the room dark? If so, let's use the dark room for or test scenario...
1st let's compare picture quality
A 1080P projector with suitable ambient light output (1500 lumen s)
Plasma or LED, LCD flat panel (1080P)
Image quality very similar (color, contrast, and brightness)
2nd, let's compare price
Plasma or LED,LCD flat panel (1080P) 55-65" $2000-3500
Projector (1080P) screen (92-123") 2000-4000
Projector and screen:More bang for your buck. The "movie theater" experience. More suitable for game systems (no screen burn)
