Well Barry, eventhough Curt Palme lists it in the entry-level category, a
free Zenith PRO 900x 7" (with Runco line-doubler and case mods), should see
a quick taker.

Picture quality will of course depend on the condition of the tubes. Hard to
judge their condition as you need to remove the liquid coupling chambers c
elements and so on. But for free this should make some crt enthousiast a
happy bunny.

The BNC is that realy component or regular RGB H/V, that should make hooking
it up to a pc quite easy and one needed worry about the outdated

As for the need for a service tech to stop by, my guess would be that,
perhaps with some on-line help at places like www.avsforum.com, almost
anyone could get some basic convergence done fairly quickly as you do have
the set-up remote.

Why don't these deal come by locally, near me, sigh.
