Hi guys, im a total newb on this forum. I am glad to see such a recent topic discussing the G70's. I have one and along with it a couple of questions if you could all help me out.

I now own a house that will not allow the use of this G70 beast. I bought it a couple years back for $200 buck off an installer of video equip, turned it on a couple of times and simply just had dreams of grandure.. What the heck can I do with this thing now?

1. Where is the best place to try and sell this thing? ( I imagine here, but I would also imagine that shipping would make it cost preventative)
2. Is it better to try and sell for parts?
3. Is it even worth my efforts to do either of the above?

I want to say that it has about 5K hours on the thing. I'm sure that will wieght heavily on the subject.

Thank you in advance for any responses,
Lane

Still have my G70 and use it at least twice a week. It's loud, obnoxious, and an eyesore, so it matches my personality perfectly. Will never sell it.

Please let me know if anyone has one available.
Thanks

Is there a reason you *need* a PSS-70?

Despite having a similar appearance, the Chief equivalent is a 5DOF mount, is less expensive, and is readily available. It is superior in every way.

I bought my first projector (Sony 1252 w/2 RGB Boards) for $1500 in '99. Ceiling mounted with unistrut. Loved it, except for the jet engine in the room with no hush box. Sold it for $400 in '04.

EJ,
By any chance did you and your brother in law drive to Indianapolis Indiana to pick up the 1252 when you bought it? I remember selling one to a guy who drove all that way. You got to love the CRT fanatic!

looking for another set of HD-134 lenses. Send me a PM!

Sorry, not me...I worked for a short time for a projector rental shop in Minneapolis. My boss would refurbish CRTs, and I bought one from him.

As long as you have some sort of metal saw (sabre saw, sawzall) to cut unistrut, all-thread, and steel plate to length it's pretty easy.

Affix unistrut to ceiling joists with lag screws (3/8" work, be sure to pre-drill), attach metal to the projector, and connect the two in a convenient way using all-thread with thin lock nuts above the channel nuts so there's no way to accidentally unscrew it.

You can even use longer pieces reaching the floor, lift a corner a few inches at a time, and get it up there without help.

Kind of funny you mentioned that. This weekend my sister saw me looking at vintage stereo equipment. She said "Other guys go online to look at women, my brother looks at record players."

Haha. My wife gets pissy when she sees me getting emails and posting about anything remotely close to projectors. I think she rather me look at chicks on the Internet, hell it'd be cheaper.

CRT is Still the king. You cannot beat physics or just say something new is automatically better. What goes in is immediately drawn with electronics on the screen. No processing no windows to open on a Silicon panel.

We are selling CRT for better prices than we did 5 years ago its possible because our Barco Mods have improved so much since our first version.

Barco 909 Cine 9 are selling well into 10k range. The issue is people are tired of digital.

The picture of a digital projector no matter how good is still not even close to one of our modified Cine9 / 909.

Also why are people trying to purposely trying to drive down the prices of CRT units. A G70 is a very good projector and get a better picture than most digitalis.

So saying a G70 one is only worth $200.00 is crazy!! Come on folks I would estimate it worth aprox $1000.00-1500.00


I just purchased two of the best televisions on the market Panasonic VT30 and I can tell you that one of my modified projectors is FAR better. The issue is that you cant put a projector in your living room..... Some do however.


Also I just sold a mod set to a customer in Florida and he had a Pioneer Elite plasma. Originally he said the barco was equal in picture to being a little better. With one of our mod sets and internal HDMI cards he said the Barco had a much superior picture to the Pioneer.

So again CRT wins as the best display device in the world.
