    Hi

    I live in Harrogate nr Leeds and have been thinking for sometime about upgrading my Ellie 2000 to a Barco.

    I made a cardboard box from the dimensions and stuck it to the ceiling and wow it looked huge compared to the Ellie.

    I am also concerned about the noise from the Barco as my ceiling is low at 7ft 10" and I sit below it.

    So here is the cheeky question - is there anybody nearby who has this setup and would be willing to open their Cinema room to a stranger so I can see what the Barco is in real life ? I work in Leeds and would be willing to visit anytime to suit you,

    Any help would be greatfully received

    Thanks

    I don't have a Barco 801 and don't live in the neighbourhood, but I can tell you the Barco 801 is a very quiet CRT projector.

    I have a 1209 in a low ceiling'd room. It's about as big as a CRT is going to get. It'll be an opportunity to compare what you're used to (S-video input I assume) against a HCPC.
    I live in Birmingham which is a couple of hours away but you're welcome to take a look if nobody closer offers.

    I have an 808 and live your side of Harrogate. Idle to be exact, just of the Bradford - Harrogate road, it's 20-25 minutes from Harrogate.

    PM me if you are interested, it's quite an old projector so the fans may have seen better days.

    Roland at B4 projection is testing some fan modificaions I believe, these should make the fans almost silent if the noise is too much.

    Thanks
