    Sony VPH-1252q CRT Front Projector Package including:

    Projector can support HDTV and projects beutiful doubled DVD! Supports screen sizes 100 inches wide+
    (Projector does not have the front control cover panel [most 12xx projectors do not].
    Have the original wireless remonte commander AND will include a CCF of the projector's controls if you have a Pronto.
    This projector was $15,000 when sold new in the mid-90's, Hi-rez sells refubs for $5,000! Was named the best 2 piece projection system 1996 Audio Video International Grand Prix Awards (BEating !8k runco systems)!

    SPECIFICATIONS
    • Super Data MultiScan Data Video Projector
    • Multiscan capability: horizontal 15 kHz to 61.5 kHz, vertical 38 Hz to 150 Hz
    • Incorporates a CRT assuring small spot size and color purity
    • Remarkable light output of 700 Im (peak white), 200 Im (all white)
    • High resolution of 700 TV lines/1500 x 1200 pixels (RGB in, at fH: 47 kHz, fV: 38 Hz)
    • HACC lens for superior and stable picture performance
    • New video decoder circuit for enhanced video picture quality
    • Responds to both analog/digital RGB signals
    • Desk top mounted projection, ceiling mounted projection, floor mounted projection and rear projection capabilities
    • Can be used with screens from 50 to 300-inch in size with simple adjustments

    2) Includes the RGBHV input card (can directly connect to PC or line doubler with RGBHV output, likt the ISCAN) and the remote control.
    [​IMG]
    3) Includes a small set of lens spacers (installed) and a large set of lense spacers (included).
    4) Includes a bound copy of the dealer installation manual with complete service instructions, calibration and convergence instructions and even diagrams for chaning internal components.
    5) Includes a copy of PJCALC, the computer application used to determine throw distances and installation specifics for your desired screen size.
    6) Includes RGBHV bnc breakout cable
    7) Includes ISCAN V1 line doubler (two s-video inputs, one composite input- outputs RGBHV to the projector!) Can double any source (DVD, Satellite, Laser, even VHS). Does 3/2 pull down on film sources!
    8) Includes free delivery anywhere within one days drive of Ohio
    9) Include assistance on INSTALLATION and complete set-up and convergence done by me (I'm not a pro, but I know my way around this projector!)
    10) Includes my 68x38 inch handmade screen (using lumber and white cotton two pass for screen material)- OR I will build you a custom screen from the same materials up to 80x45.
    So you get a complete HDTV ready projector CRT which will also work great with HTPC. CRT projection with true blacks available only from CRT. You get the cabling, the manuals, extra lens spacers (in case you want a really big screen), an ISCAN for doubling your current DVD, a screen and complete delivery & setup.
    This projector is simply too big for my 10x10 room; I'm downgrading to a cheap LCD projector to free up some floor space. The only thing I don't have for this projector is a ceiling mounting bracket- and if anyone wants one I can get one for them for a resonable price.
    I am looking to get $3300 for the whole package, including the hand delivery and installation/convergence assistance by me personally.
    I can also include:
    Pronto Touchscreen Remote Control with a deluxe custom configuration programed by me for all your devices (including your new projector, macros, even movie theme music on the pronto!): Add $300
    Custom built projector stand for the 1252q that I had done by a local cabinet maker. Made from Baltic Birch; currently unfinished- can be finished to match you decor for free: Add $200
    Perfect package for those wishing to enter the realm of front projection in their theater. Excellent, well respected projector with tons of controls to tweak it to perfection.
    Will support HDTV and will happily mate with HTPC.
    Will store multiple aspect ratios, multiple color settings (I have 2 different color settings for 3 aspect ratios; so both My DVD colors and my LD colors are perfectly calibrated).
    Simple image shift and size controls, allows you to set your screen to 0% overscan if you'd like!
    Great projector, great picture, installed for $3300!

    70miles/hour x 24 hours = 1680 miles
    Kent Oh to San Francisco = 2506 miles
    That rules me out unless you really drive fast!
    (I made it from San Francisco to Toledo in under 2 days but I would not suggest it)
    Good Luck

    Why?
    Why do you keep hounding me and harassing me and hounding me?
    It's not like I don't have anything better to do, you know.
    It's not like the Phantom Cruiser is going to wax itself.
    It's not like last night's burrito stain will just up and remove itself from my cape.

    Some have emailed and asked if I would sell the projector on it's own, without anything else.
    I have decided I will.
    Basically you get:
    Projector.
    Small Lens Spacers.
    Large Lens Spacers.
    Remote.
    Manual.
    PJ Calc Software.
    RGB input card.
    Delivery anywhere within 1 day's drive of Ohio.
    $2200 or best offer
    (This does not include the Iscan line doubler, the Screen, or any installation/convergence help by me)
    $2200 for CRT projection, delivered!

    It's funny. I've got a vpl-w400q right now and I'm looking to move to CRT. Which sounds like the opposite of what you're going for. Do you mind if I ask for more detail on your reasoning? Is it just the bigger screen? What not move up to an 8" or 9" CRT?
    Just want to make sure I'm not moving in the right direction. I'm just getting tired of not having complete blacks (though a custom screen has done wonders for that) and my picture is a little soft and it's growing to annoy me. I think this may be the delta pixel arrangement on the Sony.

    That's interesting. I'd surely be interested in that. I'll have to clear it with the wife. I was looking at the 8" referbs online, but for the price I don't think I can beat this, espically if we can work out some kind of trade. Have you seen a 400 in action? How would you compare the fan noise on yours with a LCD? I have a hush box buillt for the 400, but it's probably about as loud as I could stand.
    Let me run it by the wife tonight and see what she says.

    Brian, I should be able to help you with the softness problem of your W400Q. I was bother by it at first but then I found a nice parameter within the Service Menu. I have a thread regarding this in TheBigPicture forum.
    Regards

    Thanks, Luis. I took a look at your thread and I'll give it a shot this weekend when I have some time to play with it.
    Vince,
    I got the green light to talk dollars. If you want to take it offline, you can get me a [email protected] Otherwise, how much cash would you be looking for in addition to the w400q? Don't forget I'd need shipping. I saw one place online that shipped airport to airport. That would be great.I could go pick it up and it might save a few bucks.
