My First OverHead Projector

I have been playing with the idea of finally adding an overhead projector to my dedicated music listening room. The room is 17.5 w x 26 L x 9 h. I have two sets of speakers in the room, (1)Magnepan 3.6's which are approx six feet into the room from the short wall and four feet from the side wall, (2) Klipschorns which sit in the corners of the same short wall.

I could hang a screen on the short wall and have about six feet of viewing space between the 3.6's. Or, if I run the projector I can easily slide the Maggies to the side and open-up the entire space (which I do often when playing the KHorns).

Question is, what projector should I consider? I would consider buying something used to get started. Also, what is a good screen option?
Budget please? I have had 3 projectors but it all starts with budget.
Used maybe and under $2k. Can you get a decent overhead projector in that range?
I have a Sony pj, and a Dalite screen. I love the combo. Should be able to get a used pj well within your budget. If you want any specifics, email me at
Sure can, Panasonic 4000, the Epson 8000 series models and others are full 1080p with multiple HDMI ports that will impress you for sure. Depending on your screen (painted on wall, wall mounted, manual pull down or electric remote pull down) a screen can cost as little as you can imagine. If you want some other info or options email me at chadnliz2k3@hotmail. I dont sell, just a fan lol.
Look on at some used offerings then ask if you have questions.
Videogon...never heard of it, good idea :). Thanks.
No prob, here if you need help just email. There is learning curve but its not severe. Things like position to lumens but its not brain surgery.
A used JVC Hd250 on videogon is a terrific deal!
I'd suggest buying new, there are some real values out there. Better to get a new bulb and a warranty. Some people dump fairly new units with pixel problems, geometry distortions, dust blobs, etc. on the used market. I'd also suggest waiting on the screen for a couple of weeks. Though the picture won't be nearly as good without one, it will give you some time to tweak and decide just what size you really want.
Myself and 4 close friends have bought 7 total units from $2000 to $10,000 used with never any issue. You can have bad luck but the experience has shown me that its not an issue. Just do your homework and trust your gut. Buy used and save some serious coin!
At under $2K a replacement bulb could cost a significant % of the original outlay.
I would look at the epson 5010 or 6010 at 2400 lumins it is one of the hot projectors right now. Panasonic 7000 is nice same chip they use the epson chip. Jvc 4k are really nice but not much light output. However there are a lot of factors, screen size, 3d? Ambient light? I tried to pm you but could not I have a couple you may be interested in. But I don't want to get in trouble avs form has more info over there but people are also not as open they tend to brag about what the own.
