Want a bigger screen - Sony VPL-HW40ES WHAT BRAND ?

This new build is in my basement which is fully light controlled. Room dimensions are 10' High x 14' Wide x 35' Long room. Projector installed is Sony VPL-HW40ES which is ceiling mounted.

I am currently shopping for a screen ready to pull trigger in next few days. Few mfrs on my radar, CARADA BW, CARADA CCW, Seymour AT & Non AT samples. (requested few samples)

Please suggest a Screen Size/Make for my new screen which suites my projector, my requirements below:
1. I want to go as BIG as I CAN for the screen size, considering I have a 10' high X 14' wide room to play with, with a preferred seating distance 14'-16' for full immersive experience.

2. Screen budget is approx $1000, I am not averse to spending more if the spending $200-$300 more buys me a quality product that will last me 5-10 years.

3. Would Silver Ticket Matte White screen provide comparable experience to CARADA? this I want to ensure I vet carefully with the those who have experience with both ST and CARADA.

4. Are there any other manufacturers that I should include in my list and get samples from before pulling the trigger (here is my current list = CARADA, ST, SEYMOUR Non-AT)

Please chime in to help my theater build.

Carada would be an excellent choice, as would a Stewart Cima Neve screen. Don't pick a seating distance until you know what size screen. You can easily sit 12' - 14' from a 120" diagonal screen. Give us a call or email if you would like price quotes and help.

a 135" would be nice, pending placement and equipment.
