Default Re: What 405 line set to buy?

Ekco TMB272 is a really good performer, works from mains or 12V and has one of the best 405 line pictures Iíve ever seen. Itís only a 9Ē screen, and uses a Mazda CRT, the one I have looks like a good tube, but then they are a bit of pot luck! The cabinet is a metal thing, covered in green rexine, a bit of a marmite type affair, you either love it or hate it! I may be wrong, but Iím sure the chassis is mains isolated as the set uses a transformer. The other thing to look out for is the LOPT housing decomposing, normally the windings of the transformer are perfectly ok, and you have to fabricate a new housing for it, mine was ok, but another set I have had a badly rotted one.
