I'm looking to buy the 55ES mounted 18' from front wall/screen. Any recommendation with the installation of the 55ES and what screen works well with projector. Besides watching movies, I'm a big sports watcher (DirecTV & football package). Any recommendation would be helpful, I'm slowly reading through the long thread.

There are quite a few different screens that work well - sort of depends on your room, whether it's dark, etc. !

It's a rec room with control ambient light from double patio doors in the middle of the 64' length.

I suppose if you want a screen that size I'd recommend one with some gain - 1.3 gain, white. Give us a call at AV Science to get specific prices and ideas ( or send an email ). There are several good choices at various price points.

Do we still need a A-Lens with HW55 if we have a Lumagen Mini 3D?

Can you give me some info on Lumagen vs A-Lens. Is there a loss of quality using Lumagen?

Lumagen mini costs 1500 and A-Lens is 4K, so trying to see which makes sense for 2.35 viewing using HW55. Thx
