FS: Marquee 8500 with Moome HDMI input card, new blue tube [Sold]

SOLD

I have had this awesome projector in my theater for 15 years now, and I'm sad to see it go, but I am finally upgrading to 4K.

I have upgraded mine with better lenses (for sharper focus and better color accuracy). I still have the original lenses, too.

I replaced the internal fans with quieter, higher output ones.

The ceiling mount is included, of course.

It also comes with a brand new blue CRT tube that I didn't get around to installing. The blue tube in the projector is still very good, but I bought a new tube since they were becoming harder to find for eventually replacing it. A new blue tube will increase image brightness and allow for slightly sharper blue focus.

I also added a Moome HDMI input card which allows you to just plug an HDMI cable into the projector from whatever source you have (mine comes from the A/V receiver) instead of messing around with RGB cables and converters. You can read more about the Moome HDMI card here: http://www.curtpalme.com/VIM-FULLHD.shtm

I have just replaced the 8500 with a new projector, so viewing in my theater is no longer available.

I have spent a lot of time tweaking and adjusting my projector to maintain great image quality. I can walk you through some of the procedures like fine tuning the convergence which needs to be tweaked from time to time to maintain image sharpness. You can see from the images above that the geometry, convergence and white balance of this projector are excellent. The screenshots from DirecTV and blu-ray also show what it can do (taken with just my cell phone on my 106" diagonal screen).

Everything for $200, but you must pick it all up from my house.

SOLD

Come get it!

I decided I'm keeping the hushbox though since it works beautifully with the new projector I just installed, even though it's a bit oversized for it.
