Oh yes, the Stewart is not responsible in any way for any noise I experience. It is a very clear, detailed screen and only shows the image it is given. The Darblet definitely introduces noise in some films, which was compounded by my 11-12ft viewing distance (the main reason I got the RS56 with eShift2). The Elite screen masked the noise at my viewing distance, but that’s just a testament to the absolute clarity of the Stewart. This Elite screen is remarkable for close or distance viewing though. There’s no doubt that the Elite is intended for smaller rooms, and the Steward is—of course—intended for larger or dedicated rooms. I absolutely love my Stewart and am glad I chose this screen over the Black Diamond G3, although the BD G3 is also a remarkable screen.
