Well...I pulled the trigger this morning and bought an open box Darblet 5000 from Solid Signal. It should arrive by Friday. So that gives me a few days to clean the light path, screens and fine tune the calibration and focus. This will be a lot of fun. Because I don't want to put the Darbee in line until I feel the PQ can not be improved.
can you reply to a question I have here or over on the Hitachi thread in the Rear Projection HDTV area? The question is this. What is the best way to manual focus the 3 CRT guns when cleaning the innards of the Hitachi. I've never done that before. I've always done just the electrical focus on the screen pots. How do you know how the focus adjustment is working if the front screen is off? Do you use the image in the mirror? I'm not sure about that step...so any help will be appreciated. I think the PQ can be improved even more with a manual focus...before inserting the Darbee in the signal path.
