Well, after many years of waiting....

I finally got my projector and screen!

I've been wanting to get this set up for a few years now, but something always came up that was more important so the projector was pushed back.

Last night I went and picked up a Panasonic PT-AE900U and a Da-lite 106" screen I am so freaking excited!! This is a long overdue addition to my little home theater project.

Can't wait to get it all installed and fire up a few movies! I can see a 12 hour moviefest in my future real soon!

Sweet! Which Screen material did it come with?

and why the heck didn't you call me, I could have got you a smoken deal on both of those!!! j/k I assume you got them used as they quit making that projector a little over a year ago.

Should be a nice setup when you get it in!
Let me know if you have any questions on the install, I would be glad to help out!

Got a Da-lite 106" High Contrast Matte finish. Not sure if I'm gonna like it or not, but it was a package deal so I'm gonna give it a shot and see how it works out.

Yeah, they are used. But this is the projector that I've been wanting so it's all good. It'll take care of my needs until the 1080p's come down in price.

You gonna come out tonight and help me install this thing?

If you lived closer I would definately be down for helping out!

I assume you have the High Contrast Da-Mat, is it Silver? They have a high contrast matte white now, but it is relatively new. The silver surface will help that projector out a little bit with contrast which you will like, however you will have to adjust for the "color shift" of having a silver screen. Onced you get it tuned in, you will probably like it.

since you are into a lot of bass i'm guessing you're going to run into the problem i have... projector vibration!

luckily most of my music doesnt need an OSD but when i stream using the PS3 its fun.

Piss off! Yes it's a ghetto set up right now, but it's up and working! A more unghetto look is coming soon though

Getting ready to fire it all up and watch the first movie.
