Just curious as to what you guy’s backup plan will be when your favorite CRT stops working. Will you buy another,go the OSSC/XRGB route or emulate?
I went from having over 20 PVM’s and 10 BVM’s down to only one PVM 2030 (I prefer 600 TVL to 800). My 2030 went on the fritz and I had to repair it this weekend. There was a point during the repair where I thought I wouldnt be able to fix it and had to start the internal dialog about what I’m going to do,do I go full OLED/OSSC or start hunting again (ugh).
Finding one in the south at a reasonable price is impossible now (mostly my fault) and ebaying one is a gamble. I’m leaning towards OLED/OSSC since I really don’t play all that much anymore and the scanlines look AMAZING with perfect blacks. I also like the look of a regular ass Wega through component,it looks more like I remember, and those are still easy to find.
Still,every time I turn my PVM on I hold my breath a little, since its my last one. A year ago I wouldnt have felt this way since I had multiple backups but the inevitable will happen soon enough…
