    Had no idea this thread was still going. I still own three FW900's (well one SGi) and use the SGi here in my new apartment to play my console fighters. The other two sit in a storage room with their future's uncertain, not started up in 2 years. I will have to go back and read if there is any...

    Please Recommend Excellent 2.0 Channel Small Desktop Speakers

    SMSL SA50 amp ($70) - Micca MB42X speakers ($80) - Add a Dac/headphone amp if you want with the remaining budget. Something like the SMSL SD793ii ($60)

    DAC Recommendations ~$200

    I don't think the Odac can sound any better or worse than anything else around it. It can do math better which is its entire job. I mean it was designed and built out of spite to beat dac's costing hundreds more and simply by being the most accurate it can be.

    If I didn't have three I would consider one in excellent condition but for less and only with at least a picture in a CL ad.

    I don't have any disk drives at all in my new PC. Any movie watching comes in the form of downloaded media. I have found a point of diminishing returns on 1080p content with H264 to sit around 6-8 gigs per hour. So a 15gig 1080p BluRay rips seem to be the best quality you need in order to take...

    Native Hz for movies and TV is irrelevant with modern shader controls. Setup MPC-HC with the MadVR renderer and even at 85Hz you will never want for anything more

    The AG comes off all the FW900's The second one I got had it off and I removed the first and third monitors coatings. So much better. Just make sure the screen doesn't face any light sources.

    Hey Unkle Vito, Welcome back! I wanted to invite you to be a mod on the subreddit dedicated to the FW900. It isn't very populated right now but if / when it does start taking help requests and showoff posts it will be a WHOLE LOT more organized than this 6,000 page post...

    Exactly right to both things. No point in trying to maintain your own FW900 site when free, easy and frankly better options are on the table. I will message the mod there and see if he is keen.

    Hey.. Remember when this thread was about the greatest monitor of all time and not bickering about Spectrochromalithigraphs? Anybody have any stories they want to share? Some interesting tid-bit about their first CRT and first LCD.. ANYTHING but a continuation of the last 4 pages.

    It is certainly a relay clicking over so there will be a limit to how often it can do that. I don't change res or refresh for anybody.

    When I focused my screen (or my projector) I used these. As a bonus here is one I found for convergence. If you see purple anywhere your convergence is off. BUT I think it is impossible to remove it all.

    Luck has little to do with it. Just eBay perseverance and a storage room. Paid roughly $250 for each of mine (3) and only shipped the first. Living in new york has some advantages. I suppose if you live in South Dakota there would be far less chance of them showing up.

    My issue is definitely cable/connection related. I wonder if this new path past my power strip has anything to do with the ghosts. I put a ferrite core around the 5 smallish coax leading to the bnc's. Didn't seem to do much. Perhaps moving it to the end of the DVI cable instead.

    OK, Switched my DVI-VGA adapter and 4' BNC cable to a 10' DVI-i Extension and a DVI-I to BNC and now I am getting some 3/16" ghosts to the right of anything with high contrast. I use to get this with bad DVI to VGA adapters and unfortunately I can't swap out the $40 DVI to BNC I bought...

    OK, Upgrade time! (Graphics card, not monitor!) What is the bottom line on who's cards support the FW900 best? I don't run crazy res/hz just 1920x1200 @ 85hz and I just want the best software/driver support for this CRT I can get.

    Has anyone tried one of these HDMI to VGA converters? I am tempted to pick one up and try and run my cable box strait into my FW900.
