Hell no I don't think that, any more than vinyl records are dead and those are actually making a strong comeback. Only a fool would think something as wonderful as CRT projection is dead or dying.

It depends on what you mean by dead. Vinyl is dead to the average consumer. Yes, a small percentage of audiophiles still swear vinyl sounds better than digital and this group (the same group that supports the high-end audio market generally - that is, the ones that pay $45,000 for a pair of Wilson speakers) is supporting something of a "comeback" in vinyl. But the average consumer . . . forget it.


As I've said before, CRT will live for a long, long time for videophiles interested in the absolute best picture quality. But just as vinyl is dead to the average consumer, so is CRT. No mainstream company sells CRT projection any more. No mainstream dealers do (Sorry, Curt - I'm talking about B&M stores here). Heck, I think Hitachi is the only company that still sells a CRT rear-projection set. And direct-view CRT TV's are in their death throes. CRT as a mainstream technology is six feet under.


But I still have my NEC 1350, and will for a while yet.

Sure it's dead to the ignorant, un-washed masses and that's OK. Helps feed me air of superiority

It's going to be an exciting year ahead for CRT. There's many unanswered questions I think. Like how many more untapped corporate sources of CRT projectors are left? Have we seen the last of government/military auctions and companies clearing out their projectors? Are all of the CRT projectors now in private hands? If so, how long before we can only get our hands on sets with worn tubes? (assuming that VDC tubes will only support certain brands and at an ever increasing cost).


I think though that the number of sets sold could actually remain at good levels over the next year, as people find it more affordable to upgrade, so the turnover will be good. It also becomes more affordable to experiment with mods and upgrades. If you suffer a mod disaster, hey, replace the set. More and better upgrades will be published because we can afford to try to mod $20 boards that used to be $200 to replace.


If we see a set with cmjohnson's yoke mods, MP & VDC & Eisemann mods, and HD144 lenses, that'll resurrect the interest......here's looking forward to the year that will produce 4kx2k from an 8inch CRT.......?!


Maybe I'll be eating my Marquee lens foam in a year's time!

Geez, you guys totally missed my point!


HEre's a liquidation of a factory that manufactures stuff that hasn't hit the market yet, but VDC is still cranking out CRTs, literally 80 or more years after they were invented.


Maybe I should retitle the thread 'OLED- dead in the womb?'




Dunno what happened today, but I've gotten over 50 emails today, all CRT related, and took literally dozens of calls today. I'm on my second cell battery. One poor guy tried dialing me for 90 minutes, I was on 5 tech support calls at about 20 minutes each... CRT...Dead? I don't think so!

Curt,


You know extended use of a mobile (sorry cellular - as translated from UK speak) is bad for you!
