A couple questions related my upcoming (in progress actually) room build.
Right now, what is spec'd by Dennis Erskine is an Electrivertimask with a Studiotek 130 microperf screen (132" wide 2:35)
1. Previously, everything I've read is that past 10-11' feet, you don't see the microperfs. However, in my build thread, a number of people have talked about seeing them far past 11', including talking about seeing them more like in the 15-17' range. Also, that on very light scenes of movies they are more visible than in dark scenes. So, what's the story on visibility. I have a sample coming, but as my room isn't constructed, I don't have a real accurate way have testing this. I'm leaning towards the Stewart, but don't want to get into a situation of seeing the perfs all the time and regretting it (my primary seating row will be between 12-13' (still a couple minor details left that will decide exactly how far from eyes to screen).
2. This will be an aperture mount install into a screen wall. There will be zero access behind the screen (such as to work on speakers) other than through the screen frame. I was assuming one of the advantages to the Stewart was being able to unsnap the screen (or part of it) to be able to get back to the speakers if I need to make any tweaks. Someone pointed out that this is not as easy as I seemed to think.
Anyway, any thoughts on either of my two points above would be appreciated.
