Re: The Good Ol` CRT
I have been a CRT fan for many years, but I must admit I have given all of mine up. My reference KV-34XBR960 34-inch tube is now in the hands of a close friend replaced by a space saving Pioneer PDP-4270. My Runco DTV-991 8-inch CRT has been replaced by a Samsung 710 DLP projector. The only advantage that the CRTs have over these displays is black level, and it is a slight advantage. the vast improvement in Contrast ratio from these fixed pixel displays outweighs their weaknesses. in the case of the Samsung it is also far more accurate in color and gamma over any CRT based front projector.
By the way I think you are referring to the 40-inch Sony direcct-view series, which means this thread is in the wrong place.
