budget motorized acoustically transparent screen recommendations?

Any good budget motorized acoustically transparent screen recommendations? I recently upgraded my Sharp 70" 1080p TV to a new Samsung 82" 4k TV and I am loving it for movies and gaming! So I decided to look into upgrading my Sony 45es 1080p projector to a 4k model, 4k really spoils you! but since I am a gamer at heart one of my requirements for a 4k projector has to be low lag, and at the moment there are no true 4k low lag projectors that are affordable. So I decided instead I will keep my Sony 45es, its an excellent projector especially for gaming it has very low lag and I will upgrade my screen instead to a bigger size, and later I will upgrade the projector to a nice 4k model with low lag. I am currently using a cheap electric elite 100" screen that is due for an upgrade anyway and would love to go with a nice white 110" or larger screen. Just looking for good budget motorized screen nothing exotic or with extra fancy high end materials.

Don't think xyscreen will be as expensive as the elitescreen and imo the cloth of the soundmax is better.

Ok I got an answer, they said they cant ship because of the size, they can only ship by sea which he said is expensive and takes a month. Any advice on how to get this to me in New Jersey, USA?

I wouldn’t know...
It will only be a problem with motorised screens I suppose.

A dealer in the usa would solve a lot of the shipping problems...

I only ordered the fabric for DIY, so no problem there.

I believe the problem is boxes with length over 3 meter.
For fixed screen they can “cut” long lengths in half, thus facilitating and reducing shipment costs, but for (motorized) foldable screens that’s not possible.

BTW I live in Europe.

Still trying to get details, but looks like shipment will be a problem for 110" or 120" due to it's size.

Hello,
I have been emailing with a rep at XYScreen about a in-ceiling recessed motorized screen, and they have been very helpful. The price they included is for FOB shipping to a port in my city. I am wondering if anyone has experience with this.

How do I pick up or have my item picked up at the port and delivered to my address?
Has anyone negotiated with XYscreen on price?
Any other advice, tips, etc. are welcome.

Thank you!
