Default Proper screen size for best quality picture

I see in the specs for a lot of projectors that say screen size 80 to 300 inches.

I'm wanting a 120 to 140 inch screen size with a picture quality is as good if not better than my 70" Sony XBR2.
Will a projector that claims up to a 300" screen size have the quality I'm looking for or will a projector of that quality be a budget buster?

I am not the projector guru by far here Moose, but id depends on light output of the projector, screen gain, ambient lighting.... so it's nopt just the screen, it's a combination of the whole system.

Cool Re: Proper screen size for best quality picture

The best 1080p projector on the market without braking the bank is the JVC DLA-RS2 Reference Series ($8000). I own the RS2 and am very happy with it's performance, I ditched my Seleco HT300 (to many problems)

By the way Meridian uses the JVC DLA RS2 change the name and sells it for $15,000!!!


If the JVC is too pricey the Panasonic PT-AE2000U ($2600)

What size picture can you get out of that & still have killer quality?

Is there a ratio for screen size vs bulb wattage?

JVC recommends no larger that 135 diagonal, I have a 100" and am looking to do 2:35 125" diagonal

Moose,
Life is short, if you have the ideas and money to back them up, go for it. You don't need us to encourage you. Remember a good lawyer never asks a question he doesn't already have the answers to now get out there and do the right thing, bigger is better.

Caveat; only If your wife agrees lol.
