When it comes to state of the art home theater screens there is but one name in the game, Stewart Filmscreen. The Luxus Delux Screenwall is a step up from Stewart's entry level fixed screen offering. The Luxus can be had in 16:9, 4:3 or 2:35 aspect ratios and ranges in size (diagonally) from 60 to 135 inches. A three and one quarter inch aluminum frame wrapped in VeLux finish frames the Luxus' screen. There is a black-matte finish available at an additional cost. The Luxus' can be had in a variety of screen materials including Stewart's own Microperf X2 and Cinemaperf screens that allow for in-wall speakers to be placed directly behind the screen for a true movie theater like appearance.
• The Luxus screen is a true high performance fixed aspect ratio screen that offers a lot in terms of quality so long as you don't need features like masking or electronic drop down.
• The sizeable frame, with its VeLux finish, traps all of the light and combats over-scan improving perceived contrast, for vivid, lifelike images.
• The quick-snap system keeps the screen material perfectly taut for a wrinkle free image.
• The EZ-mount wall brackets make assembly, mounting and positioning a snap even for the DIY'er.
• While affordable, for a Stewart Filmscreen, the Luxus Deluxe doesn't differ much from its cheaper sibling the Luxus Screenwall, other than the width of the frame and one added screen material.
• With any fixed screen, especially one like the Luxus, you need to choose your aspect ratio carefully. For today's modern enthusiast a 16:9 aspect ratio screen should serve most users needs appropriately.
While there are cheaper fixed screens available today none come with the pedigree or image quality you're bound to find with a genuine Stewart Filmscreen. While a bit light on features, the Luxus is another premium offering from Stewart. The Luxus makes sure you get the most for your money where it counts, on the screen.
