For a long time now I’ve fancied the idea of transitioning to a projector instead of a tv for my main living room.
About 15 years ago I visited an uncle who had one set up in his living room, and of course I know there’s plenty of people these days with “media rooms” that opt for projectors over television sets…
I have a few questions…
What brand / model would you recommend, both as a “best option” model, but also a cheaper option to test the waters…?
How do you go in terms of connectivity? I would be looking at getting a sound-bar (ideally 3.1) if not a 5.1 speaker system… but would also need to hook up at very least an XBox, and probably want the option to connect other devices now and then too… (ie 2 HDMI’s and maybe RCA too?)
Does this all get very messy with cables?
I gather there’s “projector paint” to specifically prepare your wall for viewing on… but would any white wall suit? Is a dark room also essential or can modern projectors handle some light?
Thanks for any / all comments!
