Thanks for the tip though! I did own a non AT 93" Silver Ticket screen as my first and was very very impressed with the quality. Jamestown has Seymour XD material for a $600 screen but I only see 16:9 options. I will call and see if they can do other.
Have you (or Carp) toyed around with other aspect ratios? I was recommended 2:39:1. I don't know jack squat about the video side besides my Spears and Munsil calibration disc...
Oh, I didn't know it was that cheap with all the fabric/material and wood or whatever you build the frame out of. That is really cheap if you can do one for $100.
I haven't tried anything other than 16:9. I listen to music 90%+ of the time and us an HTPC as my main source so most of the time I use Tidal, Spotify or Youtube for music. That is why I went 16:9 if I watched more movies I would probably do another ratio.
Isn't it fairly expensive to get a projector that does 2.39:1 or can you make your Sony do 2.39:1 with an add-on lens? I had read a little about it in the past and thought it was pretty spendy from what I remember.
