That's largely what doomed the CRT: weight and bulk. The image quality was perfectly adequate but people wanted larger than 40" images and that just wasn't going to happen since 40" sets, the largest ever produced commercially, were already over 300 lbs and when in their box barely would fit through a standard door opening.
In A/V reproduction accuracy, there IS no concept of "accounting for personal taste/preference". As art consumers we don't "pick" the level of bass, nor the tint/brightness of a scene's sky, any more than we pick the ending of a novel or Mona Lisa's type of smile. "High fidelity" means "high truthfulness", faithful to the original artist's intent: an unmodified, neutral, accurate copy of the original master, ideally being exact and with no discernable alterations, aka "transparency".
