    You can read a review of a Marquee based theater on the HCC website in the realife articles. It's a decent EMF 8" CRT projector. They are noisy, unless modded and cannot do an anamorphic squeeze, unless modded.

    I have a client who is upgrading to a 9" unit next week. In fact, it's the unit in that article. I will be selling it at some point in January

    I have a Marquee 8000.Had it for just over a year.
    So far I've been more than happy.
    If Gordon's gonna be selling Nick's give him a call.

    The 8000 is a good mid range 8" electromagnetic focus projector. It will give a Barco graphics 808s or Sony G70 a run for their money.
    On the down side they are quite a bit bigger in the height department but shorter.
    Untreated machines can be a bit noisey. Three resistors need changing to achieve full 16x9 images.
    These tubes can be rebuilt.
