I have a number of questions about buying a screen for an HT that I'm 'building'. The room I have is small, the wall I'd be projecting on is 9.5 feet and it's 11.7 feet deep. My first pass plan would be to try to fit an 8 foot screen. This gives about 34 to 43 degree viewing angles in the back. Are there any reasons why I should look at a smaller screen--visual reasons? A screen that big would mean I would almos be forced to put the center channel behind the screen. I'm not opposed to this, might even be fun. But right now, the only factor making me think smaller is this, it would certainly be easier to keep the center channel outside. The next question I have for now, is what brand I should buy. Do you really see a big difference between an image on a Stewart screen vs. Da lite? I've heard the difference is night and day, but one source used to work for Stewart and the other is prone to exaggerate. There is nothing more I'd love to do then compare various screen/ projector combos but finding that retailers don't really put that stuff on the floor much. Does anyone know of a place in southern california that displays projectors and screens? I'm currently leaning toward DLP, 3-4K range.
