    David, my price reference probably is what I've paid for my previous and current projectors, which have been Panasonics for the last three projectors over the past decades. They all were around $3000. Could go higher, I suppose. My screen is a 16x9 format, about 120 inches diagonal. It has been a few years since I have bought a projector - my current model does 3-D, so that will give you a sense of its age. I did splurge a bit with a new screen which is called a dp Supernova, and allows me to see a nice picture with quite a bit of ambient light in the room in the daytime. If I go to a 4K, then I will need to upgrade my Oppo BDP-95. It too does 3D, but I found using the glasses and the dimmer image was not much fun.

    BTW, we don't do TV, only bluray and regular DVD movies. I probably should look at the streaming stuff, but haven't so far.

    Thanks for any recommendations.

    Larry, based on the quality of the Sony projected that I just bought you may want to consider a Sony VPL-VW285ES LCOS Projector. The MSRP is $5k but I am sure you can get it for less than that.

    I was experimenting with power conditioning years back. I put 4 x 47uf panasonic caps on a bridged diode and inserted it into the neutral line of my power feed. It put a veil over the music and did not work for audio, but darn it made my plasm TV picture all sorts of better. It only cost about $20 to make so it was a success in that regard.
