    Hi all

    Just wanted a verdict on the Barco 600

    I know it has an analouge chassis like my current Panasonic.

    Just wanted to know whether or not it is worth changing over as my Panny is getting old and the top of the picture is failing :(

    If you can find one with perfect tubes then fine. I owned one for 10 years and it produced bright sharp pictures. Just got to be patient with all those knobs to twiddle. Very compact and quiet though. A good one can't be worth much more than £300 these days so don't pay too much.

    They really are getting too old now. I buy them for the lenses and the old spare but not to sell as servicable units. Mostly because of where they have been stored.

    CRT projectors have to be used. The ones that have been left lying around are the troublesome chappies.

    The £3-400 price range is good though.

    Roland I live near Staines in Surrey . . .

    What products ie. second hand goodies, can you offer a poor BAA apprentice ?

    I have a Panasonic 7" crt analouge chassis at the mo, that projects a 60" picture.

    However, I am right on the verge of investing in a 36" nicam Panasonic widescreen TV, but somehow I don't think things will be the same.

    Cheers

    Chris
