Mark - I hadn't gotten around to posting my thoughts, but I installed the 1.3 Affinity a few weeks back, 63" high, about 17' from projector lens to screen, with a little zoom room to spare...
It's a very good screen, but there is slight hot spotting and slight sparklies, but really noticeable only during very bright white scenes. Of course, I watch a lot of hockey, so...
I wonder how the Stewart 1.3 compares. The problem is you basically need a huge sample to see any of this.
But overall, it was a very nice step up from the High Power 2.4, which I still have a place for in my heart. I'm still able to run in low lamp mode often - I just use auto iris full for some content to compensate, and do so mostly for 2.35 content. Some 2.35 I will use high lamp as well. I'm at about 100 hours on my current lamp
