With my desired screen size, the placement of my desired projector (Optome HD141X) is right above my head (approx. 1m far as the seating is elevated in the room).
I am a projector novice and thus I am not sure how much noise can the projector generate in such short proximity. The specified noise is 26dB, however, I am not sure at which distance is this measured?
So to my main question - is it worth looking at another projector, most likely short-throw, that would be mounted closer to the screen and thus further from my seating location? (3m far away for the short throw).
I quite like the projector I found and the price seems reasonable but I have no idea what to expect in terms of noise, and I would be sitting quite close..
