Extracted from DigitalTrends.com | The best short-throw projectors of 2020 Feature
Home Theatre – Are you looking for a cinematic viewing experience, but don’t have the space for a traditional home theatre projector? Maybe you live in a studio apartment or a dorm, and you don’t have the range necessary for a long-throw projector. Or maybe you need to do a presentation in class or at work and there are no projectors provided. In any of these circumstances, a short-throw projector is ideal. Short-throw projectors provide a clearer and larger image in smaller spaces compared to those with long throws.
As with any type of projector, short throws wildly vary in specifications and quality. Here we’ve compiled our recommendations for the best short-throw projectors.
WINNER | The best short throw projector overall: VAVA 4K UHD Laser TV Home Theatre Projector
Why you should buy this: 4K resolution, short throw distance, powerful audio
Who it’s for: People who want a no-compromise short-throw experience
Why we picked the VAVA 4K Projector:
There are a lot of great, high-end, short-throw projectors available, but when it comes to pure bang for the buck, this 4K HDR model from VAVA has all the others beat. The VAVA is a feature-packed all-in-one solution that offers zero compromises.
While many projectors have speakers, they are usually subpar and will require external speakers anyway. The VAVA has an integrated Harman Kardon soundbar with 60 watts of power. That means you can get a pretty impressive sound in a compact package. Yes, you’ll still get better sound from a more robust setup, but the VAVA can also competently do the job on its own.
The VAVA has seven ports on the back for you to connect hard drives, computers, and Blu-ray players. It doesn’t support any casting technology, but you can always hook up an Apple TV or Roku to get the same experience.
In our view, the VAVA offers everything you would want in a home theater experience — without the setup.
