    I am just moving house and leaving behind by loved home cinema :( I have a Barco Cine7LT.

    For my next home cinema is CRT still the best choice, I love the fact that there is no line structure. Should I consider another brand next time and is there really any difference between a CineLT, Cine7 and say Cine8, as you can imagine I was not able to test them back to back!

    I'm probably going for a Barco because there seems to be plenty of support.

    Why are you leaving it? Did you do a deal or something?

    Well I have built a dedicated home cinema room with Barco projector, Artcoustic speakers and a concealed electric screen. It also has a Denon AVR3803 and DVD 2900.

    I don't see how I can sell a house with a dedicated home cinema and then strip the room as I move out.

    I haven't sold the house yet.

    I just sold my house with custom install speakers and left the wiring and the speakers and explained that they could add a projector like an ae100 for about £500 and an intergrated amp/dvd for £300.
    I don't think that you will get anymore for leaving the CRT, maybe get asking price but not anymore.

    The only thing I could really change is the amp/dvd it would be easy to buy a bottom of the range all-in-one with componant, but there is no way it couldf drive the Artcoustic's. I'll try to post a pic and you will see what I mean.

    Demo the house with the cinema in place once you have people interested it is time for negotiations. Items like carpets, curtains and light fittings are usually regarded as extras. Your cinema should be too.

    Paul.

    I had exactly the same situation when we moved last year. I had a Seleco 500 CRT / Stewart Screen/ Denon 1Sr / M&K etc etc.

    Intially the couple who bought the house were very keen to buy it all installed and working. They then made some enquiries and were put off the CRT. We ended up removing the gear but leaving wiring intact.

    They then puchased a DLP and a somewhat more conservative setup.

    If you decide to sell the 7LT I would be very interested.

    Regards

    Tom
