If it is not THX certified, it's not micro-perf. You may be talking about cinema-perf, especially if you need to be 14' from the screen for the perfs to disappear. Also, micro-perf screens come with an equalizer to cancel the treble roll-off from the micro-perfs. You are quite right about soundtracks sounding bright, they are usually mixed for cinema-perf screens and they have more treble to compensate for the loss in the high-frequencies (hence Re-EQ with THX processors), of course with a cine-perf screen you have it just right!
