Expert Review

Although acoustically transparent screens are not the right choice for every home theater, the Seymour-Screen Excellence Reference Series Enlightor-4K is outstanding enough to be worthy of an overall recommendation. With ISF image quality certification to back up performance claims, this projector screen comes close to overcoming issues typically seen with acoustically transparent screens.

This screen uses a woven technique - as opposed to perforated - which potentially makes it more difficult to properly adjust focus. To combat the potential for light reflection problems, an optional black backing material can be purchased to prevent light from passing back through the screen from the back. However, with the addition of more material, this reduces the acoustic transparency. The potential for issues will depend on your individual setup.

The Seymour-Screen Excellence Reference Series Enlightor-4K is easy to set up, and produces an image with excellent uniformity, accurate colors, and good resolution even with the screen’s texture. Compared to another top-performing screen such as the Stewart StudioTek 130 G3, the Seymour has a lower gain, so be sure to use this screen with a bright projector. With the proper setup, this screen can replicate a true movie theater experience in conjunction with a properly installed center channel for fully immersive surround sound.Rating: 4.25/5
