Based on my readings, I have decided that properly connecting retro consoles to modern LCD/Plasma/LED televisions is too much trouble (e.g. I don't have the technical capability to install RGB on retro consoles, etc). The easier option is to simply hook up retro consoles to what they are meant to be connected to: fat CRTs. I would like a single big CRT to do the job. But which brand and which model? There are two important factors determining suitability of retro console connectage: Types of video ports available Number of video ports available Location of video ports (front, rear, side) Size of screen To make sure everyone is on the same page, here's a quick refresher on common video port types: RCA: Red/white/yellow. The most common video type for retro consoles. Also the worst quality, or the second worst if you include the even older "antenna" type connection. S-Video: Good quality, but the availability is rarer in both consoles and TVs. Component: Even better than S-Video. HDMI: Best video quality currently available. And here's a quick summary of the rarer and weirder video port types. For all intents and purposes, these are mostly irrelevant but are presented here for posterity. SCART: Mostly for Europeans. D-Terminal: Mostly for Japanese. VGA: Mostly for computer monitors. RGB: Possibly the best quality for retro consoles, as well as maximising compatibility with modern televisions. However, relatively expensive and relatively difficult to install. I already have a "Sharp" 68cm CRT which I will use as a benchmark. Here are the specifications: 68cm screen size Front ports: 1x S-Video, 1x RCA Back ports: 1x S-Video, 1x or 2x of RCA, 1x or 2x of Component. So basically what I'm asking is, are there any CRTs that have better specifications? In particular, I am looking for a bigger screen size, as well as more frontal video ports, and a full range of frontal video ports (including component). The number of video ports isn't too important; I'd usually only be playing one game on one system at a time but a full feature of front video ports is definitely preferred. I heard the Sony Trinitron or Bravia or whatever series, or the Panasonic ones are the last best CRT TVs. And if anyone is in Melbourne and is willing to give away what I'm after, I'll gladly take it. My plan is for every current generation console (PS3/HDMI, Xbox 360/HDMI, Wii/Component, PSP/Component) to be used with current generation televisions. The PS1/Component and PS2/Component will be used with current generation televisions or if the results are less than satisfactory, on CRTs. Consoles that are capable of S-Video will be used on current generation televisions that have S-Video (tough ask?) or if the results are less than satisfactory, on CRTs. Everything else will be connected to CRTs (via RCA, S-Video, Component).
