I have finally decided on the Epson 5030UB projector for my home theater, but in getting a quote from the company that I plan to purchase the items from, they quoted be $1600 for a 9 channel Receiver and I only have 5 speakers and a sub woofer $2000 for a Da-lite 100" UTB with 1.1 gain screen. Then they added a wireless HD multimedia system, a center speaker stand, that I don't need and approx. $1200 in parts and equipment. I do have 3D DVDs that I would like to use in the theater. I felt I could get by for a lot less on the screen and the receiver. Am I being taken?

I have a max distance of 19 ft from projector to screen and would like to use a cinescope 2. 35:1 125" screen with 1.1 gain.
I am going round in circles though... deciding on which projector to use. I don't mind manually adjusting the lens zoom and focus to switch between widescreen and cinescope but i want to be sure that i dont need an anormorphic lens.
Can someone clarify that the epson 5030 ub (my preferred option for brightness and blacks) can project the 2.35:1 image at this distance without the need of an anamorphic lens?.. I think the anamorphic lens would only be required if the projector was much closer and thus only fillling the center of the screen.
I assume that I would just adjust the zoom and focus when switching back to widescreen and close the side curtains that I was planning on installing.
I can get the epson for $2350 cad or the panasonic for $3100 cad so again the epson looks the better deal.
Any advice would be helpful. Thanks

I'm thinking about installing the Epson 5030UB in my place
my question is : due to the limited room space that I'm planing to install the projector in :
Is it possible to project a picture of ~125" diagonal on the wall from a throw distance of 9ft ?
also the viewing distance is 9ft or less

I am looking at the Epson 5030 and 5020. A 5020 refurbish with a 2 year warranty is 1900 now. The 5030 is 2600. IS the 5030 that much of an improvement to warrant a $700?
