Vertical Hold got a fully loaded 1208 to replace his old 1209. It has P16 tubes, Color Correction, 5G Mods all 7 boards, Converg on Green. Took 3 months pre-order but he finally got it.
Its a top unit and I will give him a free update to 7 G if he wants in the back end switcher and I said I could move the amps in the neck cards up to 7G right before the final driver. This tends to boost the performance of the final driver. After I upgrade him to the new 7G I hope he posts here as it's a nice increase. When I was finished with the unit it was mint and the picture was super sharp. I had to send him a newer model convergence driver as the old one had some ring. He had a tough time getting a convergence line out of the picture. He did a great job working with it and it now is 99% removed.
I am happy because lines in CRT projectors can be a pain to remove.
BTW...I will be putting the 909s on eBay.
If you are interested let me know the starting price on ebay will be 13k. If you want to make an offer outside of ebay that's cool too just email my site.
They are new in the box and have everything.
Color Correction, Mods and Internal DVI are all extra.
I have to do a full check out to see hours and make sure they work well.
The CRT are mints however and they have soft-edge options fully loaded they say Barco Factory returns on them. So I suspect they were returned or used for a very short time.
I want to keep one but I never watch TV, I am always working on projectors. With my storage, basement, shop and house full of CRTS I can't justify keeping another unit. But the quality on these is so nice I am tempted.
