Well, sort of. The Zenith is the Cine 8 chassis which improves the port 5 input quite a bit. Has less video noise, and has P16 tubes which are capable of slightly sharper focus.

See my post #26. I'm not the only one that thinks this. According the the TPV reviewer the 8" CRT beat the Ruby in 3D look, dynamic range, and blacks. Also, he never says what his 8" CRT is, so we don't know how old the chassis is or anything.
BTW, exactly where did you see a Zenith Pro 1200 X or Barco Cine 8 Onyx so that you know for sure it is identical in performance to the G70? The Zenith/Barco use a newer design than the G70 and has newer components than the G70. Can you please tell me what research you have done to determine their performance is identical?
To my knowledge, you have never seen both of the PJs the OP is asking about, so why are you giving an uniformed and misleading opinion? Oh, I know why, because he asked about a digital and since it is digital it has to be better, right? :rolleyes:
Even if you think it is equal to a G70, are you going to tell the OP that it is worth almost $7000 to upgrade to the Ruby, the picture is 3 times better than the G70 you saw?
Heck, I want him to get the Ruby and sell the Zenith to me!
