IMPROVE YOUR SOUND AND SCREEN
While all these projectors have builtin speakers, for a soundtrack that matches the oversize images, you’ll want to connect to a home theater receiver or soundbar. (Bluetoothing to a wireless speaker works in a pinch on some models, but the sound will never be up to snuff.) And before you plop down for movie night, plan on getting a proper screen—no, a white wall or bedsheet won’t work. Many factors, from room size to ambient light levels determine what screen to get, but the most basic difference is fixed or pulldown. The former offers a more consistently flat surface but robs wall space. Unless you have a blacked-out home theater area, look for screens that are labeled ALR (ambient light rejecting).
