Thanks smddoc,

And thanks as well for the email.

I hope everything works great for you and the quadscan as well.

Hi,
I'm considering a quadscan v2.10. I have a crt fp and have heard that this particular version softens the picture somewhat.

Since I may buy this unit used is it possible to make a modification myself or is it necessary to return the unit?

Any help or suggestions are appreciated as this may affect my purchase decision.

Thanks, Jerry

I just spoke to phil at taw he say's the filters are in the newest units which are still ver 2.10 . He also said that the mod is as easy as clipping out a jumper in the unit and is very easily performed, however you should check with FE to make sure it's ok so you don't void your warranty. Apparently this mod makes a big difference with crt projectors.
When mine arrives I'm going to set it up with out making any changes and see how it looks. I'll decide from there whether or not to do the mod on mine.

My company's video tech, Mike Parker in MD (a forum member) performs the mod. We spent 5 hours tracing the circuts and fiquring out what to do. I believe he removes two levels of filtering. The difference (improvement)on a good CRT (Electrohome 8000, 8500, 8500LC, 9500LC)is staggering. Very significant with the DWIN 700 too. The unit is sharp as a teck with the mod. It is very soft above trippled TV with out it and is soft at trippled TV. The warranty is not an issue as long as it is dealer performed (at least that is what the techs at FE have told us). The issue is academic as to performing the mod in the future as FE will exchange the .10 for free with the better newer unit when it comes out.

Any word when the newer unit will be out from FE ?
I'd also like to know how much you charge for the mod.
Thanks
