"I don't want to sound like a cheerleader for ChromaPure but in my opinion
realistically, even using it manually, the ChromaPure software is much easier
to use and is more flexible than [other commercial calibration software], hence, in the end faster
with better and more consistent results." - Ron W
"Last night I had my first opportunity to use ChromaPure on the famed JVC
D-ILA 750HD Front Projector. Calibrating the Color Management System (CMS) with
the Color Management Module on ChromaPure was, dare I say?...a "BREEZE".
Yes...CMS is a breeze with this software! I can't overstate my wholehearted
endorsement of ChromaPure and Tom Huffman, the man who "wrote the book" on Color
Management. In fact, I traded my [other commercial calibration] software in to get the ChromaPure
System specifically for new generation displays with Color Management Systems,
as well as LED illuminated displays." - Bill Hergonson, Owner,
Coast Calibration, Carlsbad, CA.
ISF/HAA Level II Certified
"I asked Tom what his key goals were when he set off to develop
ChromaPure. He said that he wanted to offer a calibration program that
incorporated the features that he wanted to use, along with a well thought out
workflow. I’m pleased to report that ChromaPure has delivered on those goals and
more. ChromaPure is an excellent calibration program that is well worth the very
reasonable purchase price. The software is easy to use, well thought out
and is very stable. The CMS support is a
standout feature that is not available in competing products and by itself is
worth the price of the software. When combined with all of the other features
like multiple colorspace support and multiple color difference model support,
the program is a compelling bargain. I found that the program yielded excellent
results while significantly speeding up my calibration times. After using the
program, I’ve decided to use ChromaPure for all of my display calibration needs.
Future display reviews on this blog will be done using ChromaPure, so expect the
graphs from ChromaPure to show up often." - Mark Petersen of

CRT projector parts blowout and Dwin 700 special
CRT Primer to read why CRT projectors are still used in home
theaters where picture quality is paramount. Our
Projector Rankings page will show you how they
stack up. Not sure what
projector is right
for you? Email Curt
It’s been a while since I’ve sent out a list of
projectors for sale so here's an update: I am
maintaining the stock of all
8 and 9” projectors, thus the minimal
changes in the available projectors, and have
lowered the pricing of most
7" projectors. I usually end up selling the
high end projectors before they get onto the
What I will do is feature one projector at a
‘blowout’ price from time to time. This is to move
some stock, as I still have over 100 projectors in
stock. This month’s feature is a
700 projector, comes with ceiling bracket
and remote control. I’ve been selling these for
$1000 generally, but I’ve got 6 here at this point,
all in really good shape. Minimal tube wear, a great
1000 lumen 720p/1080i projector.
Note that the tubes in these can also be used in
Barco Cine 7 and late model 708 projectors,
so if you only want the tube set, I can pull them
out and put Barco high voltage (HV) wires on them at no
extra charge, and I’ll keep the chassis here.
Dwin 700 blowout price: $600.00
What I do have too many of as well are projector
parts. I’ve been hoarding boards for the last 10
years, and it’s time to slaughter pricing on a bunch
of them. So here goes:
Barco analog projector: This includes
Barco 400, 600, 1000, 1500, etc. At this point I
only have one Barco 400 and one 600 here. I will
sell whatever boards I have left for these sets at
$5.00 each as is, or $10.00 each tested prior to
shipping. Most of the boards that I have should be
good, so if you’re still running one of the older
analog projectors. Here’s a good way to keep them
running by stocking up on spare boards.
Any board, untested, at $5.00
each. The only exclusion are the Sony 1030 and 1031
power supplies, as I only have one of each in
working condition. I’ve got parts for the 1000,
1001, 1020, 1030, 1031, 1040, 1041, 1042 and 1044.
Again, most boards work, only a few in my large
boxes have ‘issues’.
Electrohome ECP: Almost all parts for the ECP projectors, again, I’ve got too many here. Same
pricing, $5.00 each untested, $10 tested in a set
prior to shipping. The pricing excludes HV and LV
2000 and 4000: $5.00 each
untested, $10 each tested. The exception here are
the HV and LV power supplies.
Ampro 3300, 3600 and 4600:
untested, $35 each tested. The exclusion are the CPU
boards and LV and HV power supplies.
Sony 12XX (except 1292): All boards except
for the top two deflection boards and the LVPS: $10
each, the CA (G) and CA (B) boards are $40 each.
Some boards are in very limited supply, first come
Barco 500, 800 and 801:
All boards, $10
each in tested condition. Exclusions are the LVPS
and the convergence board which are $50 each in
tested condition. HV quadruplers and HV splitters
are not included in this pricing.
1208, 1209 and 1209s: I’ve
parted out a bunch of these sets over the last few
years, and again, I’ve got enough to keep the world
going for 25 years at least. Time to get rid of
some. $50 each in tested, modded and working
condition. Some boards as in SMPS are very limited in
stock, so first come first served. I’ve got many in
large quantities though.
Marquee 8000 and 9000: $15 each for
untested boards, $25 each for tested ones. Again,
the vast majority are in good shape and work fine,
but I’m charging a bit more if you want me to test
run them for a few hours before shipping. Exclusions
are HVPS and LVPS modules.
G90 parts: While I don’t have nearly as
many NEC or Sony parts as I do Electrohome, Ampro
and Barco, I’m willing to make some deals on some of
the boards that I have multiples of.
Email me with
what you need.
Please note also that I’m selling these boards as
straight parts orders only. Pricing does not include
diagnosing projector problems via email, these
prices are so that you can keep some spare boards in
case of failure.
Also, for anyone semi local to me in the
Vancouver area, I’ve built up quite the stock of LCD
computer monitors, and have gotten really good at
repairing them. Pricing is usually under half of
typical retail pricing:
- 15” monitor:
- 17” monitor:
- 19” monitor:
- 20” and larger:
$80 and up
Almost all makes and models are available, 30 day
warranty with each unit, and discounts available if you trade an old non-working LCD monitor
in, or if you already have the VGA and power cords.
I’ve been rebuilding these for a year now, using
better quality Japanese made replacement parts than
the originals used in the monitors. Power supply
failures are common in computer monitors, and my
repair percentage has been excellent.
Also if anyone is interested, I’ve gotten into
more audio repairs lately, and regularly list
overhauled audio equipment as well as other goodies
that I stumble across.
See my eBay listings under ‘audiovideotechnician’.
