    Holy shit!
    Our senior ([​IMG] )-moderator RAF has won himself a big fat Runco projector on the Home Theater Cruise. We're in the Caribbean now (just leaving Labadee, heading for Ocho Rios, Jamaica), organized by Dave Bott of AVS (great job of Dave, really great, I can tell you), working also together with Ron and Parker for our Forum.
    Yesterday we had a great demo by Runco and while they were showing a scene from an unamed movie, the first person to know the answer would win the DLP-projector.
    More than 300 persons (at least 30 HTF-members, the rest AVS) couldn't say it for more than 5 minutes. Then RAF suddenly realized it was from The Projectionist - not to far fetched, BTW - gave the answer and won!
    If you want to know more about it: post here, he will reply if he thinks you're really interested, no doubt.
    See you!

    PS I think this thread should be in the AHL. Hence here it is!

    Cees,
    FYI, I've moved this thread over to the Projectors section where it really belongs since that is more appropriate in my estimation. Hope you don't mind.

    We all love the hardware, the equipment. But I think it particularly fitting that an HTFer, one of the mods no less, was able actually to name a film being shown! [​IMG]
    Go, HTF! (Feeling a little patiotic here.)

    I would have thought a "big fat Runco" would have utilized CRTs??? [​IMG]

    RAF, here's to really hoping you get the CL-700. I would think the Sony is worth keeping over the CL-500 but the 700 would be a worthy replacement. Keep us posted.

    I cut a sweet deal with Runco and a CL-700 will be coming my way in December. I'll let you know how things work out. Stay tuned.
