    Hello,

    Not really wanting to be linking to another forum, but spotted this:

    Thought I should share it [​IMG]

    The New Greyhawk screen with a 'special discount' for members.

    May be worth mailing for a price.

    Waiting for my Quote [​IMG]

    Marky,

    What are you planning on using with your Greyhawk and what style/size of screen are you after?

    Hello Gordon,

    I own a Davis Cinema one at the moment, used with HTPC and a 7 feet wide 4:3 'cheap' manual screen.

    I have now moved the projector to the back of the lounge, and need a larger screen.

    I was originally going to buy a Stewart with the Studiotek 1.3 gain, probably a Luxus model A, 4:3 8x6 Feet. The Grayhawk could be good with DLP/LCD, but not sure.


    The offer at Avscience sounds interesting, but I think I may wait a while before buying, as the Panamorph may be good, and I would want a widescreen format, maybe 16:9 for this.

    Not sure if I need a 'Model A' or 'SR-1' Stewart? It will be mounted directly to the ceiling, with the housing visible?

    I will sometime upgrade the Davis to something higher res and brighter, maybe a JVC Dila or a seleco 250 if I can afford it.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Hello Spaniard,

    I asked AVScience for a quote for a Stewart Luxus 'Model A' Grayhawk ElectriScreen with 220v motor for UK, size is 4:3 8x6 feet.

    Here is the e-mail I received:


    Mark,
    Here is the pricing you were looking for. It includes a 10% off sale we are offering during February for forum members. Thanks, Jason.

    Stewart Luxus Model A Electriscreen 96"x72" Grayhawk w/220v switch: $2295.00 plus shipping

    Stewart IRR IR sensor/remote: $360.00 plus shipping



    Shipping is around $200 to UK as far as I know.

    So that is about $2495 US, or about £1720 GBP + import duty and Vat. Not sure how many % import duty will be?
    But if you allow 20% for VAT and duty you get around £2064 GBP, still much cheaper than here.

    That price is cheaper than our friend Gordon can buy a Stewart screen from the Official UK distributor, as far as I know, which is hardly fair for UK dealers is it.

    The IR remote is about £248 + Vat and duty.

    Hope that helps someone.

    Mark.

    For reference I bought a Stewart Studiotec 130 with a 12v trigger from AV Science in October, Mark is right with most of the figures, import duty was actually 3.5%.

    The service was excellent, delivered in about 14 days as opposed to 6 weeks leadtime in the UK, the only issue is if there's something wrong, I had a slight problem with the 12v trigger which is still not 100%. Returning it under warranty isn't really practical (you want to see the packaging it comes in!!)

    I also had to buy a transformer (Maplins).

    If you are considering a manual screen you should have no problem and save a packet... just be cautious and double check everything before commiting to an electric one.

    If anyone wants any more info email me.
