Sony LAMP-H202 for HW-40 ES
I have owned an HW-40 ES for several years and have suffered the replacement lamp issues as discussed here.
Check out my review of the SpArc Platinum for Sony LMP-H202 on Amazon, under DECKARD name. Posted 1-7-20
There's some hope for a reasonable priced lamp that performs close or the same as the Sony.
