Screen recommendation for Epson 5040UB

Hello,

I am looking for screen recommendations for the Epson 5040UB. This will be my first home theater. The space I'm using has only 1 window, which I plan on blacking out so light is not an issue.

I am looking for some acoustically transparent as I'm planning on putting my center behind the screen. 2.35/2.4 ratio.

Right now I'm looking at the Silver Ticket Acoustically transparent 2.35 125" screen from amazon for $440. Are there any better options for the price I can do?

I'm not wanting to spend a lot unless there's a compelling reason to do it. My audio and projector are stretching my budget as is!

Would love to hear your thoughts.

If you are good with DIY, I would look into AT material from Seymour AV. Amazing screens. Way better than Silver Ticket.

The biggest factor after controlling the external ambient light is the reflected light from white/light colored surfaces as in a white ceiling. What color are all the surfaces in the room including furniture?

Good comment. I didn't even consider that.

The attached photos show the current colors, but we are most likely going to repaint soon. Don't think I'll be able to convince the wife to black it out, but we'll probably do a dark blue or maroon.

Any suggestions?

Will probably be placing my order tomorrow. Any other brands I should consider besides Seymour?
