Regarding Elunevision's definition of opaque:

If you search the Elunevision threads you will find several references (including mine) to screen materials which they claim are opaque, but are not.

As Elunevision is apparently not interested in providing accurate opacity descriptions of their materials, it might be helpful if those of us with Elunevsion screens to post their exact screen materials and test for opacity.

I have the Vivid Pro Cinema White 2.4. Definitely not opaque. My screen has a TV and a mirror behind it. Plenty of light leaks through the screen, but not enough gets reflected back through to be visible.

Anyway, Eastporters has been nothing but responsive whenever I've had a question, and equally so when I placed my order a while back. A little over two years ago I bought the cheapo Cinema Grey pull-down for under a buck fifty. I only intended it as a stop gap measure since I wasn't sure if I'd be moving into a larger place at the time. I ended up staying where I was (and where I still am), and every so often I get the itch to look at all the pretty pictures of the Reference screen...but then I realize how damn good the little cheapo screen looks and I talk myself out of it. I've had a few cheapo screens here and there, but this material is just fantastic. Pretty great value.

That being said, I'm pretty sure one of these days I'll pull the trigger on the Ref 4k

Off-gasing is pretty bad on my Ref 4K. Anyone have a similar experience?

After a bit of time, I cont to enjoy the Ref 4k. I does offer a fine image with no detectable image grain. Longevity will be the key!

Mine had a strong plastic smell when new as well. It took about a month before the smell had gone. I have had the reference 4k screen for about two years now.

I watch a movie about every second night and it still looks very good. It has developed a small wrinkle of about 3" in the bottom left corner but it is not noticeable when viewing anything. I only notice it with the lights on and nothing being projected so it isn't really a problem. I didn't try to adjust it with the tab tension as I didn't want to risk making it worse (with my luck).

My Vivid-Pro Cinema White also has quite severe off gassing - even after six months. Mine doesn't smell like plastic. It's much more like a petroleum solvent.

I installed an in-ceiling tab tensioned Ref 4k about 6 months ago and off gassing was noticeable for the first 2 months or so but is now fine.

If you've got a free hanging Ref 4k screen and get some occasional wrinkles near the bottom just lift the bottom weight bar with one hand and pull on one end of the screen slightly and you'll get a perfectly flat screen again.

After 3 weeks watching on the plain wall (which I'm quite satisfied), I'm still hesitant to get a screen. Costco is selling EluneVision Elara gain 1.2 at decent price, do you find that this screen is a significant upgrade over the white wall ?

I finally got my EluneVision Reference Studio 4K 100 screen assembled (white, 1.0 gain). Great picture, incredible how crisp everything looks. No hot spotting at all, very smooth surface, no texturing. This is a great value for anyone who wants a high quality screen without breaking the bank.

I just posted about this in a different thread about loch screens but thought it would be helpful to post this here. My apologies if I'm breaking any forum rules.

I was wondering if the cheaper elune screens could have the same manufacturer as the screens offered by Loch USA. The Loch high contrast gray material could be the same as Elune 1.1 Cinema Gray -- both screens have very similar product pictures, are manufactured in china, and have almost identical specs. The Elune, Graywolf, and Loch manual screen cases all appear to be identical. The remotes for the electric screens are the same design. I was in touch with a Elune representative about having their 1.1 Cinema Gray shipped to the US (they don't ship the cheaper manual screens here), and asked them if they shared a manufacturer with the loch screens, but the representative declined to answer. It would make sense that they wouldn't want to if it were true, given that the Loch screens are considerably less expensive.

Hi Dave,


Has Elunevision considered the introduction of a gray reference audioweave screen.


Thanks

Unpacked mine today. Trying to stretch the material to attach to the frame, and I can tell you that it takes an insane amount of force to stretch the material onto the frame. Once it's on the wall I'll get some screenshots up here for all to see.

Initial impressions of material, frame, and build quality are very good.

I stretched the material over the pegs with a friend. It was tough, but we got it. No wrinkles. Looks great. It's a reference 4K with 5" frame, 100 inch. First time I've heard my wife swear in a long time when she saw it on the wall. Glad I went with the 5" fame, looks more rich than the 3 1/2". Maybe a smaller screen suits the 3 1/2" frame though. I got it from Eastporters as part of a package deal with a ceiling mount and an Epson 3500.

Looks nice. I have the 106" motorized 4K screen and it has worked well for me for the past couple of years. I also bought it from Eastporters.

Was thinking about the 5" frame but I have limited space and we want more viewable screen real estate

Screen s..t..r..e..t..c..h..i..n..g

LOL...I just finished assembling my 130 inch AudioWeave and my fingers are sore, in a good way I used a 1 foot piece of 2x4 with an angle cut down the long end and that made it somewhat easier to push the rod into the grove and get the clips in place. I'm very impressed with the heavy gauge aluminum frame and the coated metal corner connectors, I don't see any bending in the middle happening over the years. Now I've got to get my nephew to come over and help me carry this monster downstairs and get it hung up, everything else is ready to go. This is going to be awesome, think I've decided on Interstellar as my first movie after getting everything calibrated.

Does anyone have recent experience with the Audioweave 4K Motorized screens?

I am deciding between mounting my center on a stand below the screen or doing AT. LR will be at the room corners and not covered by the screen.

Thanks

Bottom left away from wall

Just got mine hung up yesterday and it does the same thing with the bottom left out from the wall about 1.5 inches. I am thinking about using Velcro to hold the screen snug against the wall. Everything else went very smooth and I am very happy with it. I had music playing through the front L/R speakers when we carried the screen into place and hung it up and I didn't notice any change in the sound, still clear and the treble is still bright. At this point I would buy this screen again without any doubt.

-Moire free image on a 130" screen from 9 ft away (first row is 11 ft, second is 18 ft).

-Frame is heavy duty, love that it's 4 pieces and not 6.

-As I said, material is a pain to stretch. My fingers are raw. Best to have two people. Word to the wise... ignore the instructions, and install the clips corner to corner first. Was easier to stretch, and i found less wrinkles to deal with this way.

-The instructions leave a little to be desired. It's almost like they were originally in a different language, and Google translate was used to make it English.

-The bottom left of my screen doesn't sit flush with the wall. Not sure if my wall is to blame, or the screen. Probably my wall. Not sure how i'm going to fix this. In the meantime i have a heavy box holding the screen against the wall, which is far from a permanent solution, but it's doing the job for now. I'm open to any suggestions

Pictures to follow!

PureBright 2.4 Gain 2.35 @ 130" Diagonal

Anyone have any issues with picture quality with this screen vs. a 1.0 gain of the same size?

I'm thinking of getting a JVC X500R and at the 130" 2.35 I'm concerned about dimness of the projector and thinking I may be better off with the 2.4 Reference Purebright vs. the 1.0 gain one.

All of my seating would be within the width of the screen.
I have great ambient light control, and also some dark painted wall areas near the screen and very dark carpeting.

They have one installed in one of their showrooms at their Oakville location, it would probably be worth going to see it. It looked good to me -- but I bought another 108: with 5" frame to replace the one I sold with my old house. I liked it so much that I bought the exact same screen again, years later. Never had a single issue with mine aside from the ELunevision logo falling off (about a day after I first put it up).

I've had my Elunevision Vivid Pro Gray since around 2009 and its been great, no complaints. I did run into an issue with some of the coating being rubbed off which caused a dark spot on the screen but I think that happened when I had removed the screen for painting and something must have rubbed against it. I've since painted the screen white and the picture looks phenomenal, I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Elunevision in the future if I ever needed to.

Which screen material you are using, the regular white or the reference 4K?

THe 4k reference. I'm one of the reviews that they quote on their site for it in fact I bought it before it was the 4k reference (was just the reference). Here's a link to my review of it way back in this same thread:

EluneVision screens

If you are going to use the reference screen be prepared to do some extra work to black out your room. Just having a dark room (as in all the lights turned out) is not always enough. These screens need good light absorption to show their best picture. My old room had black velvet installed for the first 6 feet or so of the room so that no extra light would reflect back onto the screen (from what was already projected on it), and in my new room (almost done, yay!) the first 1/3 of the room is going to be done in velvet and the entire roof.
