I have relegated my pioneer elite 730 to the masterbedroom system.
Now I've gone the Epson projector route in my main setup with a 120 inch DNP , Din Nippon Printing of Denmark it arrived via 18 wheeler, supernova core 2 screen, this setup is so striking in its ability to move you and put you in the action it's astonishing. I never thought going from 65 inch to 120 would be so dramatically different, boy was it ever!
Epson has enough lumens or lightpower in there latest projectors, I'm not sure if you need a light rejecting screen like mine. I'm sure I will never purchase another TV again as technology is rapidly changing in this market also. So all I do now is upgrade my projector!
Have a Roku streaming stick for Netflix, fandango for the latest movies in true HD stored in the cloud once purchased, etc.. Love it.
Epson is my choice they're are many others 1080p 3d starting refurbished as little as 500 dollars. Optima has a 4k at around 2 thousand.

We built a home theater in our last house with a Stewart Studio Tek 130 retractable, micro-perf screen. I was spoiled. The screen cost way too much, but it's like forever and the projectors are like razor blades. Back then, a $10,000 projector wouldn't come close to a $500 one today.
I miss it.
And acquire the things that matter most to you. I'm hoping you'll have that room again! If that's what you desire, of course.
Yes much like digital precision in music, video now appears to incorporate frequent changes which create obsolescence in current products, think recurring income for manufacturers. Long gone are the days when products stood the test of time. Black and white tv gave way to color both having long runs. Then around 1987 stereo speakers in TV was introduced and it was pretty amazing.
Still analog TV with the vhs era, no fast changes you actually had time to enjoy the technology that justified the expenditures,then came DVD and the digital horizon opened up enormous landscapes, one new feature comes out 720, 1080i,1080p,3d which I like, then 4k, curved screens etc... all Inside a decade?!!
Time to separate the screen from the ever-changing chassis. To some extent taking back control in high quality video playback while retaining upgrade ability of formats in my time of choosing. Much like digital to analogue converters in music playback.
I enjoy the advancements yet still cherish the old black and white mono programs of yesteryear, as well a vinyl record.
Hope all's going well Rod and Thank You for providing such a uniquely wonderful forum. Wishing you Many years of prosperity.
