Best Projectors for Bay Area A/V Enthusiasts
A decade or so ago, it cost a small fortune to turn your home theater A/V setup into a “home cinema experience.” But thanks to the advent of several exciting technologies, more and more Bay Area audiophiles and cinema-philes can now afford high quality, tech-centered solutions. Let’s do a quick review of some of most exciting technologies on the market.
The Epson PowerLite 3020 Projector offers a sophisticated, compelling, dynamic picture, and it boasts exciting features, such as an astonishing contrast ratio of 40,000:1;
The 3M Streaming Projector (by Roku) is incredibly inexpensive. It includes a streaming stick and delivers a clear, crisp picture up to 120 inches. This portable unit powers out at a weak 60 lumens, so you need the right lighting conditions. But it’s great if you want to “take a theater with you” on vacation with the kids – in case they get bored with the wild life at the Yosemite Park, for instance;
The Sony VPL HW50ES provides a truly immersive theater like experience. It’s pricier than most TVs, but it delivers an extremely accurate picture, comes with a trove of set up options, and boasts many other bells and whistles, like a super quiet lamp and 3D glasses;
Another great choice is the Viewsonic PJD – 7820HD, which powers out 3,000 lumens and produces bright, vibrant color as well as effective contrast. It’s also ready and willing to play your 3D Blu-Ray discs;
One more other affordable and exciting unit is the JVC DLA-X35, which is a real “must have” for videophiles.
