Gee such a deal, then you should probably buy two of them, just so you can have a spare one on hand.....

I would, but then that just gives my girlfriend one more thing to dust, and I'm not that kind of guy.

I don't think so. If she were so inclined she would have done so long ago for your collection of RPTVs.

All in all, she must be a very tolerant person.

Interesting here locally someone just recently opened a TV repair shop. They interviewed the owner and he pretty much summed it up that a lot of people are tossing their CRT's when they probably could have been fixed and saved the owner the expense of buying new.

I dunno... Everything I have in my home sys, magnificent as it admittedly is (despite having bought wisely and not having had to pay an arm and a leg for it) would not add up to the cost of one of those buggers -

Great link Michael. Totally enjoyed the conversation. I actually have a decent layman's understanding about Gamma now. Alas...this new knowledge may actually be dangerous to me with my CRT right now. It'll likely start a whole new round of tweaking.

BT1886 is interesting. It slopes down slightly (lighter) at the dark end, which, I think, brings out more detail in the blacks.
Apparently, though, it will only be really helpful when the SOURCE follows the same specs.
Something like that, anyway.
I have mine set up like that now, and I like it. Subject to change at whim, of course.
Glad you got something (besides confused) out of the chat.
Michael
