We're often asked "what is the best projector" the answer depends on your situation.
If you've got a well lit or bright room, say a business or board room or lounge room (that's not light controlled) you'll need a brighter projector (more ANSI lumens) than one designed for the lounge or home theatre. Sound systems are the same, there is not one that's right for every situation. If you're after a very good system to go with a top line projector in a home theatre you may for example look at the Yamaha YHT-9920.
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.
