More to come!!!!




Looking good buddy!

Are the masking panels acoustically transparent?

Hook us up with some more details pics man. How do they attach, etc...?

Thanks

Yes there accoustically transparent

They are made from a alumnium extrusion, you know how i am about making these strong smile.gif
There is tabs onthe bottom that help with getting the proper alignment , then held in place on mostly friction and a couple magnets.

the ones for the 16:9 screens will be a little different, i may have to pay you visit for testing a 16:9 screen and getting a customers feed back and take.

i know it took a while with getting these into production but i went throught about 5 different designs and they all worked but i am just picky and wanted to make sure
they held up to same standards as our screens do. they had to be strong , they had be easy to use,and they had to look slick smile.gif

I took everything out of the room and progress is still at a snails pace. I have bought a new processor, UMIK-1, subs, amp and I have yet to use them. Good news is I'm ready to paint. So no hurry yet on the panels--probably a month out.

Rumor has it there might be a 777 on the market soon. You just have to travel to a small, uninhabited island in the Indian Ocean to pick it up. wink.gif

Rich,

Sounds like a familiar story. Got mine a while ago and just put in my order officially yesterday. Now scrambling to get the rest of the room done. Can't wait to see it in all its glory.

Well thought I'd throw in my 2 cents. After ordering a sample of xd material and Falcon's I finalized my order from Rich yesterday. So far he has been easy to deal with and I am looking forward to getting the material. I will be building a DIY frame from 1X4 poplar. then using a pneumatic stapler to attach it to the frame. My screen will end up about 130 to maybe 135 wide. But i ordered a larger screen and will finalize the size with masking.

'll make sure to post back when it all gets set up..

For reference my build thread link is below..

I haven't heard any mention of the masking panels since their introduction -- anyone take the leap yet?

Congrats! Please post pictures and tell us your opinion of both the screen and the panels. Did you get a scope screen with panels to mask to 16:9?

She has arrived in the new packaging Rich is using.




It may be a bit before I get it all out of the box but yes it's a 138" diagonal 2.35 with the masking panels to make it 16.9.

Believe it or not there is really is not much of a cost savings at all, it seemed that the crates where taking more of beaten. I guess fedex see's a big crate and thinks it is good time to play forklift hockey or something.

the new boxes also are easier to the customer it weighs less then half of the wooden crate, and your trash man is cussing you on trash day smile.gif

I can definitely agree with that, my crate looked like it was dropped off the back of the Fedex truck!....lol

Of course I still need to cut it up to get rid of it. smile.gif

oops it's a 138" diagonal not 137 - I guess I should know the size of my own screen.

Probably why I also have the box upside down and Rich those are tiny arrows smile.gif

Yes, anxiously awaiting the verdict. I'm finally getting ready to start finish work (insulation, flooring, drywall) on my HT room, which has been rough-framed and wired up for 7 or 8 months now. That means I'll be ordering my 110" screen w/ 16x9 masking panels in the next few weeks, along with the rest of my gear - disk players, DVR, subs, receiver, etc.

Excited!

Well.. i havent had a chance to take pics yet but I have the screen up and set up the projector on cardboard boxes. I watched oblivion night before last and it looked FANTASTIC. I have a Sony Hw50es which has reality creation and the oppo 103d with darbee and the results are great.. No complaints on the screen. As far as I am concerned it does its job,which is to dissapear and let me enjoy the movie. Great deal on this material and I definitely recommend it. Rich was also very helpful and easy to work with.
