I'm selling a Runco 980 Ultra. I haven't used the projector since I moved but it was once the focal point of my Home Theater. It was last calibrated by Kevin Miller of Home Theater magazine and I used it with a Cinematrix modded Sony DVD player in 720p. The picture from the combo was stellar and up to that point, Kevin hadn't ever seen the Cinematrix modded player. He was VERY impressed by the performance of the player and especially, this combination!!!
I still have the Cinematrix player (in original box) as well and would consider throwing that in (along with Better Cables RGB run for connection). While many newer "Digital" projectors might be sharper and more convenient in terms of size/setup, the deep/dark "inky" blacks that this MONSTER produced is MOST impressive. The last time I fired it up, it had slightly over 4000 hours on it with no real/serious wear on ANY of the tubes. The projector once listed for $29,995.00 and for good reason.
I will upload photos soon.
