Finished my home theatre for now. Added Sony 77 oled today that I found second hand
Hi, just going to use this thread for a quick question... Any newbie guides / suggestions / sites with budget ranges?
I have at tax return to spend and a soundbar to upgrade from. Looking for 5.1 at a very reasonable price.
Just to clarify as one persons reasonable price varies... what are you looking at to spend approx.?
Without knowing that yet here's a few options;
System 8 (or maybe 1) in this link;
I don't recommend these at all, but if you're after dirt cheap;
Hey, thanks! Bang in the price range, $2-3k.
Are any of those OCAU-friendly vendors?
I think Eastwood used to be ages ago... not sure now.
looking to buy this and wondering if i intend to output the picture to a large white wall, is there any difference between doing this VS outputting to an actual projector screen?
Hey supasaiyan, I do this on a grey wall and it looks fine, but an actual projector screen reflects the image better, resulting in better image quality, brightness, etc...So it helps, but it's not necessary.
If you've got a nice dark room it's no problem
PS: I'm probably selling a projector soon that's probably better quality for around same price if you want to PM me
Screen is better as the wall might not actually be exactly white or defect free, but imo a projector of that budget probably doesn't really warrant using anything fancy. The wall will be fine as long as it's a flat texture. Semi-gloss or gloss will hot-spot and be very poor looking, borderline unusable.
A screen with a black frame makes the picture a little more impressionable, as it visually separates the off-picture light bleed from the picture.
Also any tinted paint can throw colours off (though at that budget range you can expect colours to be a little wonky from the projector) because house paints aren't pigmented to balance out RGB. On a grey you'll find that some paints suck out colours in an imbalanced way.
So what did you get in the end?
Nothing yet! Not forgotten though, I've had this tab open on my phone for weeks
Does a Pi4 with usb hdd and dvdrom count?
what are the undies for, dusting?
nah mask.. the thongs and other snap-ware are in a draw.
