Recommend an acoustic transparent screen for UST projector

Hello,

I'm looking at getting an Optoma CinemaX P1 projector.

Can someone recommend an acoustically transparent screen for it?

I've been reading that for UST projectors, you want a screen which is Ceiling Light Rejecting.
But I cannot find any screens that are both CLR and acoustically transparent.

Acoustically transparent is a must for me.

If the only light in the room is from the projector itself, can I get away with a screen that is not CLR ?

Thanks

To my knowledge, no such thing exists. Current UST screen designs preclude them from being acoustically transparent.

Currently you can either have a) an AT screen or b) a UST screen, but not both together.

Why a UST projector? Are there limitations that would make a UST the only viable option?
Would a regular projector not work?


What color are the walls?

If the room were to be treated for reflections a regular AT screen could be used as long as it does not have any ripples. A drop down screen, even if it's tensioned can develop waves.
Treating the room would eliminate the reflections from the walls which affect black level and contrast.

Since it's not possible to get a screen that's CLR and audio transparent, I will just go with a long-throw projector and an acoustically transparent screen.
