I am interested in the Stewart Grayhawk screen, but the first quote that I received just about blew me out of my chair -- $11,000 Canadian!! ($7300 USD)

So my question is -- what drives screen pricing? Is it feasible to get the Stewart Grayhawk at a price that won't require a second mortgage?

If we stay to the basics, my desirable size would be 96"x54" (100 diagonal)

Optionally:

Electric rollup
Microperf
Electrimask
Low voltage with IR control

Again, as I've said, my only basic requirement is for a screen - gray - roughly 100" diagonal - which can roll up, but manual would be Ok.

If I am willing to compromise, do you think that we can get the price to something less than $5,000 Canadian ($3500 USD)??

Thanks!

I believe the addition of the electrimask adds ALOT to the price of your screen. If you go for a basic 16x9 manual pull down (stewart grey hawk) you are looking at a much cheaper screen. I'd recommend emailing Jason here at AVS and get a quote from him (grayhawk is 10% off this month).
