Best Screen Gain for my dedicated HT room?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a screen for my dedicated HT room. What screen gain is best for the following HT room and projector? What brands would you recommend?

* Dedicated HT room (black ceiling, dark burgundy walls)
* Controlled ambient light (no ambient light)
* Epson 8350 projector
* 11ft throw distance
* 120" diagonal screen (this is the max size image I can get at 11ft throw - I want to have the largest screen size I can get)
* 90% watching movies, 10% video games

What screen gain would you recommend? Should I go with a low-gain gray screen? Considering I am using the max screen size at 11ft, do I need a higher gain screen(1.3?)?

Thank you!

You would be better off understanding the differences and knowing what makes one more suited than another.

umr has done some very resent screen material testing the results can be found here but are rather technical.
