Having had enough of LCD projectors I am now considering either the DLP or CRT route ... Although interested in the new generation of DLP models with claimed 'near CRT' contrast, I'm still eager to explore possibilities in the CRT world. For my budget, around £8K, I guess I could get a really good 8" model however I have one nagging concern about 8" tubes ... my screen size is 10ft wide. This has never been an issue with LCD due to the high levels of brightness but I believe anything over an 8ft image with 8" tubes looks faded and dead? Would my budget allow a 9" model, and if so what running expense could I expect i.e. are 9" tubes far too expensive to keep replacing. Would a 10ft screen be even too big for 9"? Many thanks from a CRT newbie ... I could be converted!
