Stewart Filmscreen is the world’s premier projection-screen manufacturer for both the residential and commercial markets. A family-owned business, Stewart Filmscreen maintains the highest standards in screen design and craftsmanship. In fact, each screen is handmade. Founded in 1947, Stewart Filmscreen has grown from a small business to an international one, with offices in Denmark and Singapore, in addition to two in the United States, including a manufacturing facility in Ohio and their headquarters in So. California. They design and responsibly manufacture innovative products that enhance the viewing environment.

Many Hollywood blockbusters are produced in formats such as Cinemascope where the movie is 2.35 times wider than it is high. When watching this aspect ratio on a 16:9 screen, 33% of the pixels are used to create annoying black bars, reducing your image resolution. Designed for use with an anamorphic lens, the Curved 2-Way Variable Vertical Masking System (CineCurve) features a native 2.40:1 image area allowing full enjoyment and flexibility when watching movies in super-wide screen formats. Maintaining a constant vertical height, two electronically controlled masking panels glide in from the left and right to create the perfect image area when viewing different types of media or movies filmed in various aspect ratios. The CineCurve is available with any of Stewart’s front or rear projection materials. A specialized snap-fastening system ensures a smooth and perfectly tensioned screen surface. Our VeLux™ applique finish absorbs over-scan and increases perceived contrast.

Krell Chorus 7200 XD 200 Watt 7 Channel Power Amplifier

Krell iBias Class A amplifiers are the first to deliver the rich musicality of Class A amplifiers, the uncompromised dynamics of classic Krell amplifiers, with much greater efficiency than traditional Class A amplifiers.

Circuitry Highlights

Krell iBias Class A technology allows our latest amplifiers to run in full Class A mode to full power while minimizing heat generation. All signal gain is realized in the current domain using discrete, proprietary, multiple-output current mirrors with extraordinary open loop linearity. There are no generic integrated circuits or op amps used anywhere. 

Power Supply Highlights

Four 700VA toroidal transformers feed amplifier modules that include the audio circuitry, rectifier, and power supply filtering mounted to an individual heat sink. This design shortens the electrical path from the power supply to the output transistors, reducing the overall impedance and allowing the circuit to respond faster and control the speakers better and more accurately.

Krell Chorus 7200 XD - $12,000

Trio 300 XD 300 Watt 3 Channel Power Amplifier

Everything Audiophiles and Home Theater Enthusiasts Could Want in an Amplifier. Krell iBias Class A amplifiers are the first to deliver the rich musicality of Class A amplifiers combined with the uncompromised dynamics of classic Krell amplifiers, and the efficiency and low power consumption of Class G and H amplifiers.


Because the iBias circuit eliminates crossover distortion, the amplifier is able to resolve more of the detail and microdynamics in even the best analog recordings—simply put, the music ‘breathes’. Whether an iBias amplifier is called on to reproduce the extreme dynamic range of high-resolution digital files, the minute intricacies of a 45-rpm, 180-gram vinyl record, or the complexity of today’s latest blockbuster action film, it does so without altering or abating the music in any way.
