Da-Lite adds a veneer frame option for the Cinema Contour and Imager fixed-frame screens. The visible face of either frame can be covered with a real wood veneer for a warm, elegant look. Veneers are available in seven standard finishes: light oak, medium oak, natural walnut, heritage walnut, mahogany, cherry, or honey maple. Your custom finish can also be matched.

StereoStone's Da Vinci Cinema Rock loudspeaker system uses computer-assisted designs (mlssa), and acoustical performance is enhanced beyond that of the typical box-type speaker by using a new semi-elliptic parabaloid internal shaped enclosure. The Da Vinci line is also triple protected from outdoor elements, including protection from insects, rain, snow, and ice, as well as from the sun. All Da Vinci models include StereoStone's exclusive weatherproof bass tuned port, which extends bass frequencies down to 35Hz, while the inside of the enclosure remains environmentally isolated. A 1in. titanium tweeter using a neodymium rare earth magnet is used to provide “directional” (adjustable up/down and left/right) high-frequency response.
