The last three weeks the wife and I have been spending a lot of time using the new Organic LED TV. My love for black levels and contrast ratios was spoon feeding me gobs of goodness in the form of a shovel. But now i'm left with the feeling of guilt, guilt I tell you, because my home theater is being neglected. If only I could get a 2.35 120" wide OLED product I would be willing to get a second mortgage for it.

And while I have not seen the developments in projection for the past decade, I can't imagine they can get anywhere near this level of BL/CR. So, now I am buying new components for the TV room of all places. Got a new AVR, disc player and 4K streaming stick and bought some new, although very inexpensive low-end Paradigm speakers for the room.

On one hand I feel dirty for buying a TV to watch content for critical viewing not in a theater. I feel like a traitor of sorts. At least the room is almost as dark as the batcave theater with good light control. Oh God, a new feeling just hit me, I feel like I've cheated on my other wife (HT).

Trust no one. Absolutely no one. Advice of the board.

hahah that is awesome... I find the image a little "harsh" ( ?) hard to explain but like HD and 4K when it first came out, it might just be a matter of getting used to it. I know our TV gets lots more use than the HT these last few years... to the point my oldest son wants to adopt the HT room as a jam space for him and his musician pals ... I spent a lot of time and energy decoupling the room... Smile I am dragging my feet on giving it over, mostly ( to be honest.. ) because they are actually getting pretty damn good and I enjoy listening to them jam when they are upstairs in the house Smile

what kind of TV did you buy?

I use a 77" Oled in my TV room and a projector (with an anamorphic lens) in my basement "theater".

Two different jobs. The Oled certainly has the best contrast and no other tech comes close but that doesn't mean it always provides the best experience. For a theater room for movies, it's more important to have a larger screen.

Until someone releases an affordable 150" Oled (or at least 120"+) there will be a need for both.

Basically, if Panasonic released a sub $5000 version of their 152" 4k plasma, I'd never buy another projector.
