Barco Cine 9 with 1400hrs... Too much?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I want to buy a Barco Cine 9 and it was offered to buy one with 1400hrs.
How many hours does it make? Is this too much?

That is very low hours, only if the drove the tubes hard then it might be
in the mid range. CRT's can last over 10000 hours and the chassis can go even higher.

Whats the price?

And ask for a picture of the tubes.

The tubes are perfect.

Ues a DVDO processor from Anchor Bay. Any of their processors will be awesome on that projector.

If you can find a used HD+ youll be really happy.....Lumegens are nice but I prefer Anchor Bay. I think they make a better product.

You'll at least need a VP50 in the DVDO product range.

Radiance.....all the way

When I had my Cine9's, I found the Radiance to be a godsend. The ability to correct grayscale, and especially gamma, on these projectors was essential. Very, very difficult to get grayscale right using only the projector's controls and gamma improvement almost impossible. My projectors didn't need the advanced CMS functions as the primaries and secondaries were virtually perfect as long as grayscale was corrected. The Radiance made it quite easy to get perfect grayscale and gamma.
