i tried searching, but I kept on getting old threads. Not being sure if those discussions related to older versions of the mixes or not, I thought I'd just open up a new discussion about it.
What are the differences between Silver Fire and RS-MaxxMudd? I know Silver Fire is meant for situations with lots of ambient light and RS-MaxxMudd is meant more for light controlled setups. So the silver fire screen wont look as washed out when all the lights are on. But will the Silver Fire screen look just as good (same black/color/white levels) as the RS MaxxMudd screen when all the lights are turned off?
Seems like the Silver Fire is a better mix than the RS MaxxMudd. But what are the cons of going with the SF screen? If the SF screen looks just as good as the RSMaxxMudd when the lights are turned off, why not just go with the SF screen all the time over the RS?
This is my basement
Screen will be on the wall straight ahead. the total dimensions of the room is 14'x26'. The proj will be about 11' from the screen (where the wires are hanging down from the ceiling). Lights will be turned off when the wife and I are watching movies, but when the guys are over for a game, I cant have it completely dark. So the rear set of 4 lights might be on 50% dimmed setting in those situations.
It will be around 90% movie watching in the dark, and 10% game watching with some lights on. Proj is Epson 8700
I appreciate any thoughts.
