Sony VPL-HW40ES projector and a 104" screen. I purchased it in 2014 and it was the first projector I ever owned. The first movie I watched with it was The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in 3D. From that moment on, I fell in love with projectors.

Mines a bedroom setup with pretty much the same projector (950R) and I would highly suggest looking into getting some Triple Black Velvet for the walls and ceiling. A little expensive but it does a great job absorbing that light off the screen. I have 106 screen (16:9)


This is before my black velvet went up


After being added. Light is absorbed like a sponge

Couldn't agree more on the black velvet. Right now I've got a shadow box that extends 2 feet out into the room on all sides from the screen wall. It's just painted black using Rosco Supersaturated Velour Black. Since painting the shadow box I've added some black velvet to the mix. I put together a manual masking system used for aspect ratios north of 1.78:1. The masking consists of a leading edge, a leading edge above and below the projected screen area, boards wrapped in black velvet with black velvet skirting attached in addition to a couple black velvet drapes on each side of the screen to hide these metal slats I have on the wall the boards attach to. There's a link below in my forum signature if you're interested in checking it out.

Anyway, it's amazing how the areas covered by black velvet absorb the light like a black hole. The areas of wall that are exposed still reflect quite a bit of light of course, but it's still a huge improvement with them painted black. That being said, I am interested in applying back velvet to the walls around the screen. Ideally I'd like to extend the back velvet out 4-6 feet into the room. The rest of the ceiling I'd like to paint black or a very dark shade of brown, the walls being painted a dark orange/brown type color, well not too dark. It's not a dedicated room, so I'd like the color scheme to still complement the decor of the room.
