Looks good, CRT has alot of advantages over other projection systems if they are calibrated properly. Particularly great contrast and blacks.

The tubes only had a little over 1500 hours on them and the standby time was 5 hours, not bad for a projector that is a little over 10 years old.

I had John Gannon do a setup and calibration, but have never watched a HD movie yet to really see how good it looks. The sad fact is I have never watched a complete game or movie yet, a new baby in the family will do that.

I also just found a ground loop in my system. I think its with the Denon receiver and Samson amp for the subs. The Samson must not like the unbalanced input. I'm going to give the Hum Eliminator a try and then use a XLR cable to the amp.
