    also wega pronounced ( vay-ger ) means its just got a complete flat glas display unlike the old sony's that have the curvy spherical tubes none the less the old sony's are also brilliant just less'er distortion and glare on the flat models.

    cool thanks :thumbsup:

    im pretty sure the difference's are :

    KV-21LT1 (normal screen mono)
    KV-21LS30U (flat screen stereo)
    KV-21CT1 (flat screen mono)

    seems the kv-21ct1 is the hardest to get hold of , shame as its the nicest looking chassie :)

    I think you mean "case" here :) ...the "chassis" is the term for the internals of the TV.

    A little anecdote about a Sony 14" teletext portable Model KV M1421 U bought in October 1991.It became surplus to requirements shortly afterwards and was carefully repacked into its box and put on a high shelf in the garage.

    It remained there until August 2002 when it was remembered and unpacked for use in a bedroom.It really was not expected to function at all due to degradation of components etc but it was put on to a table ,the aerial lead plugged in and then the mains plug.The switch on the front was pressed and the set sprang into life with a perfect BBC1 picture and sound - it had even remembered the channels from Winter Hill.

    Remarkable :smashin: - this little set has been in use every day since then with a Panasonic TU-CT20 Freeview box via the SCART though the sound is via a cheap computer 2:1 sound system (Microlab A98FN - £20 from Maplin) fed from the audio outputs of the Freeview box.Both the sound and the picture are extremely good and this combination is giving a lot of pleasure.

    :thumbsup:

    Sorry to be an anorak - but the non-WEGA Sony Trinitrons were cylindrical (i.e. curved in the horizontal direction but not vertical) not spherical (i.e. curved in both directions) - that was one of their unique features compared to other displays.

    I have the KV-21LS30U and its an amazing 21" TV, probably the best I've ever seen in the 21" range.
