 HCC What's new in Home Theatre

Cinema and Gaming Projectors:-

We're often asked "what is the best projector" the answer depends on your situation. 
If you have a bright room, say a business or board room you'll need a brighter projector (more ANSI lumens) than one designed for the lounge or home theatre.

The Projection Screen can make a lot of difference too. 

The size and aspect ratio of the screen relates back to the projectors specifications, location and the lighting. 
If you want performance & value you can't go past the higher end "best' Epson EH TW8200 however that's only one projector in the impressive Epson projector line-up.  
Epson offer a lot of value in their lower cost, and very bright gaming centric and not too shabby Home Theatre model EH-TW5300 Projector.

-- Most projectors on HCC are available in Home theatre bundles.

The next step up from Epson's nice priced EH TW5300 is the Epson EH-TW6600W the 6600W has to be the best value high performance projector in AU.

Home Theatre Prices  Did you know?

Epson make the 3-LCD light engines that many other brands use, we figure they'd know how to get the best from it. 
We mention this because you may not know that for example Panasonic (now RIP for home cinema) often use Epson LCDs in their projectors. 

BenQ DLP projectors are fighting back with their new range of projectors for 2016 (W1110 & W2000)
..from the Sound Image Award they just one it's going to be exciting times. Epson are not happy!

Sound And Image Awards

2016 SOUND+IMAGE AWARDS

The 2016 Sound+Image Awards were announced at our Presentation Dinner on November 25th at the Grace hotel in Sydney.

  • AV PROJECTOR OF THE YEAR UNDER $2000   -  Epson EH-TW5300
  • AV PROJECTOR OF THE YEAR $2000-$5000  -  BenQ W2000
  • MULTIROOM SYSTEM OF THE YEAR   -  Yamaha MusicCas
  • MULTIROOM SOUNDBAR OF THE YEAR -  Yamaha YSP-1600 


Epson and BenQ are over the top with their counter claims and example images showing (simulated) how the other brand's projection method is not as good as theirs. 
A lot depends on the viewers perception, the viewing  application and the actual Projector model. 

 See also W1110 Special Offer! 2 x DGD5-3D Glasses Free (RRP $256) on both models.

HCC having tested several later model BenQ projectors believe that for most people the dreaded DLP "Rainbows" are no longer a problem, this is thanks to faster colour wheel speed and the image processing. HCC offers an option to swap DLP for LCD if you're one of the few that for whatever reason aren't completely happy. See each products page for offer details, where available.


3-lcd projectors  The largest selling home cinema projectors brands all use 3-LCD technology


Epson claim that 9 out of 10 people prefer images from 3LCD projectors, read more.

Epson were also the #1 seller in real Home Cinema Projectors in 2015.

As Epson say, there’s a reason why Epson have been named the world’s leading projector manufacturer 14 years in a row.

3-LCD colours are up to three times brighter than 1-chip DLP projectors. The Epson EH-TW6600W and EH-TW8200 using 3-LCD are selling well and hard to pass for their respective prices.  That said, not all people want to go all out on Epson's EH TW8200 Home Theatre & Gaming powerhouse, save some money with the Epson EH TW6600W
