Topic:   JVC DLA-SX21UH

I have just ordered this front projector and would like to know what other forum members experiences have been with it. Also, any tips to making my viewing experience more pleasant are welcome. I plan to connect the projector using my receiver via the component inputs (I can also run composite and/or s-video). Thanks!

Topic:   Dipole speakers worth the extra?

You might also want to look at the Axiom line for your whole set up. I'll be getting TEN speakers for use with the Denon AVR 3805 or 4806. TWO different sets of rear speakers/surrounds, one for music and one for movies. I'll be using the M22ti's for rear music and front L/R. And for the surrounds for movies (side and rear), the amazing QS 8's (they also have the QS 4's). They are QUADPOLES! Check them out at Axiomaudio.com

Topic:   Right time to buy, not yet IMO.

Reply to Nlz: Yes, the electric 4:3 drop screen would be an option. That is not what I have (or wanted) however. My room is/will be a dedicated room. I have already bought a Clear Pix sound-transparent screen (from Screen Research) so that I can put the center speaker behind it as in movie theatres (I was a theatre projectionist for 20 years, ending in 1986) and I want to do it up "right"! (Nostalgia, sound quality, directionality and all). So, the screen will be masked. It already has a 3 and a half inch black velvetized frame around it. The reason for using a bottom moveable masking piece is simple. The top (and sides) of all ratios will be the same. The bottom masking will move up accordingly for 1:78/1 (16:9 HDTV ratio), 2.0/1, 2.35/1 (Cinemascope) and so on. The reason for having the masking on the BOTTOM is due to a simple mind/eye trick: when looking up, we tend to miss anything going on below (well known in the theatre business). And this is also why I need to be able to move the lesser-than-4:3 ratios UP to the top of the 4:3 chip during projection (which the SX21 allows, line by line!) Also, a note about your reply to Barleyguy: if your use an anamorphic lens like the Panamorph, then all the pixels in the FULL 4:3 frame are used in projection. 4:3 is still 4:3, but the widescreen modes are set at the player as anamorphic so that they fill the frame (squeezed), and no resolution is wasted. The lens then PHYSICALLY stretches out the picture again, just like in theatres. You also get more lumen output along with the increase in resolution. Look up Panamorph in Google and you'll see what I mean. And they even make lenses to specifically fit certain projectors, including the SX21.

Reply to Nlz: Thanks for your comments. No, I do not plan on watching (much) analog after 2006. Meaning BROADCAST analog. Hopefully, it will be minimal. HD, which I DO HAVE NOW (on a 32" Syntax Olevia) is FANTASTIC! As are my widescreen DVD's. What I meant was that with 100 years of 4:3 material out there, 4:3 seems to be the best choice for me/anybody: meaning DVD classic movies, archived historical footage, concert videos, and yes, classic TV. Virtually all of THAT is 4:3. I don't want a SMALL picture in the middle of a 16:9 widescreen to view those things. I want as big a picture as I can get. I HATE things like what Columbia did to Ray Harryhausen's classic "7th Voyage of Sinbad" (among others they botched on the DVD's). They cut off the top and bottom of the 4:3 picture to, ahem, "make it widescreen". Ugh! That's the same abomination (in reverse) that has been going on for decades to make 'scope films fit 4:3 by "pan and scan" technology! So the solution that I favor (which Barleyman also explained ably) is to fit EVERYTHING to a width that works in your room. That way, every ratio is as big as you can handle it. I think the industry is really missing something here that just might help the FRONT PROJECTOR market take off! And I hope they see this. (I think Evan Powell has a paper on this here somewhere. Read it; he's got it down). So, another reason for my appreciation of the JVC DLA SX21 UH (for now, anyway) is that it allows you to move ANY less-than-4:3-picture up or down in the 4:3 frame. I would put EVERYTHING at the top, and just move a bottom masking piece to fit. Viola! Now if only JVC could drop the price....!
