Back up and running..
As my theater is starting to finally take shape, I’ve been making a bigger effort to sell my CRT projector.
I got some help to bring the Ampro out of storage, to setup for a demo to a prospective buyer. Its literally been months since I had a chance to play with the projector and I had forgotten how much fun I have playing with them.
A very quick setup (less than 30mins) got me a surprisingly good image on my white (primer) wall. Spiderman 2 looked really, really good. I’ll be sad to see the CRT go, especially at the price I’m asking — but I still believe this it the right thing to do for me now, I just won’t have time to play with the CRT as much as I’d want to. I’m going to need a plug & play type device that I can basically ignore completely.
There is still something completely captivating about standing a few inches away from the screen and seeing such a great image. Hopefully whoever buys this will get as much enjoyment out of it as I have.
