What an incredible set. This is, without a doubt, the best tube TV I have ever seen. It was only hooked up to a Sony 480i DVD player, but the TV's 3:2 pulldown and image were so utterly incredible, I was in shock. Granted, this high end store calibrated it, so it's looking the best it can, but still, if you want the utmost quality picture in a tube TV, then this is the way to go.


Aspect ratio adjustments are easy, the menus are well rounded with many options and the set just looks cool.


The 3:2 pulldown was so smooth that it was a bit distracting at first. I have not seen such smooth motion on TV before.


I want one. :cool:

I don't doubt the picture at all but it was you that inquired what was all on the back of the set. I described all of what I could see and indentify, except for and vertical orange rectangle. Does that jog your memory Matt remember, I am one of the good guys.:)

Oh, I know that. I was just making a funny. :D


I believe the store is called Audio Etc. It's in Orange, CT. on the Post Rd.


I should point out that I did spot a slight bluish tint to the left side of thetube when viewing bright white material. The recent PERFECT VISION mentioned the same thing in their review, so I wonder what's up with that?

$5,500 for Piano Black finish and $5,000 for the regular finish (what I'd buy). Those are the proper retail prices. From what the sales guy said, I think I could get $300 to $400 knocked off the price. Not a lot, but not bad either.

I've read that all shallow tubes suffer from this to a certain extent, although it is more pronounced in the Thomson Performax 38" tube that is used in the RCA and Loewe due to their extreme width. It has to do with the angle of incidence of the electron beam to the mask. This is one reason why professional monitors are so deep, to avoid these kind of problems.
