100” TV vs. Projector System: Which Is Best for Home Theaters?

A home theater with a Sony projector and a large curved screen.

We’ll Help You Decide for Your Home Theater Design 

Projector systems have long reigned supreme in home theaters. After all, TVs aren’t large enough to create the cinematic, immersive experience you expect to see in a movie theater. 

That is until recently. Brands like Sony have been manufacturing LED and OLED displays in larger dimensions than ever, now reaching 100 inches wide with the Sony BRAVIA XR X92. At more than eight feet in length, Sony’s 100-inch television can rival the image size of a home theater projector. 

But which should you use in your home theater design—a projector or 100-inch TV? We compare both below to help you find the best choice. 

And if you’re looking for a home theater design and installation in the Fort Worth, TX area, contact Texadia Systems to learn more.

Want the Biggest Visuals Possible? Learn More about Sony BRAVIA

If you’re thinking about installing a home theater soon, you typically have two options: to use a projector system or TV. 

In the past, most homeowners opted for a projector and retractable screen to achieve cinema-sized visuals, since most TVs weren’t large enough. But today, you can enjoy stunning 4K video on 100 inches—that’s over eight feet—with the Sony BRAVIA XR X92. 

The Sony BRAVIA will surely give you enough space and dimension to feel like you’re in your own movie theater. But if you’re still unsure how it compares to a projector, we share everything you need to know below.

Create a Versatile Media Room with Home Theater-Level AV 

Do you crave the ultra-wide screen, surround sound, and cinematic experience that a home theater provides—but aren’t sure if you have room for a home theater? Or maybe you do have the space yet wonder how often you’ll use a room with only a screen and seating.

At home, to experience movies and music like they were intended to be, a surround sound system will envelop you in sound. But how do you get started? What speakers do you need? As Dallas area’s top AV consultant, we’ll share all you’ll need for surround sound below.
