Cinema-Choice vs Elite Spectrum vs EluneVision Titan

Has anyone heard of Cinema Choice, Model: TTE106MW

Trying to buy a screen in Canada and have narrowed it down to the following in PRI order...

1) $579.99 (Costco) - Cinema Choice 106-in. Tab-Tensioned Motorized Projection Screen
2) $548.89 (Amazon) - Elite Screens Spectrum Tab-Tension
3) $790.63 (Staples) - EluneVision Titan Motorized Tab-Tensioned

If anyone has any other recommendations would love to hear:

Couch is 11 feet from screen, 80" ceiling height, going to mount inside celling joists. I'm also scared about speaker placement, if i need an Acoustic screen or if mounting under/side is ok...

Thanks again

I too was looking at the Cinema Choice screen at Costco. They are local, and make budget level screens, but beyond that there is no other info online.

If others could vouch for their screens, I just might pull the trigger on it.

I had the Titan, it was ok. I traded up to the reference 4K and it was worlds better. What part of Canada are you in?

Can you please provide some specifics comparing Reference 4K with Titan?
Thanks

The titan had a very visible texture that produced a shimmering that VERY noticeable on bright solid scenes, think light blue skies in movies or most solid textures in video games. This drove me crazy. From what I've seen, this is a symptom of cheaper screens and you're going to see it to some degree in most entry-level screens. The Reference 4k on the other hand is absolutely invisible. There is zero texture, everything is sharper and clearer due to this. Also, my Titan developed some slight waviness but where I moved to a fixed frame on the Reference, I'm not going to call that a "Win" as the Retractable reference could be just as likely to exhibit that.

All and all, when I first got my projector I was wowed by the size and the film like quality but quickly started to pick up on the negatives like the texturing and the sharpness. I still loved it but could see the flaws and felt while it was huge, my plasma delivered a much better overall picture. Once I switched the screens out my opinion changed immensely, my proj was now delivering a picture that I was 100% satisfied with. That was a year ago and I'm still very pleased.

Both screens were the Matte White standard gain option (1.2 for the Titan, 1.0 for the Reference). I also owned the Matte Grey manual pull down for about a week and that was plain bad. The mechanism broke very quickly and tore the screen, it had the same texturing as the titan, and my projector was nowhere near bright enough to overcome the grey.

Thanks for the info.
The Elunvision 1.2 gain screen material is called "Cinema White". Whatever they use to provide the additional gain is likely what's causing the shimmering. "True" matte white screens, even entry-level screens, should not have any shimmering.

Did you make a final decision?

Would you guys highly recommend the Reference 4k over any of these other choices?
