Mac is the Ampro expert, But I studied them a lot as well (without seeing one in person). In raw specs they are somewhat similar to a NEC 10PG. They are EM focusing, but has no dyn. astig. Theoretically they can go up to 105kHz scanrate but for various reasons it is not advised to run them above ~70kHz for long. They usually go with P19LCP tubes, and most of the time they have coloured C-elements.Lens is plain HD10 or if lucky GT17. It should be fun to play around with one. Make sure it comes with the remote because the projector does not have any buttons.

Back in the day they were a great projector for their price. 909's and G90's and the like were so pricey many could not afford them so the 4600 was a great fill in. But now a days with 909's and such being more affordable they fall to the way side. They are a fun projector to play with and if you need a low scan rate that the others will not do then there you go. Easy to work on also if need be.

Yes the aim for it would be 240p on a large screen for light gun games. It would be the perfect machine for that with the 9" tubes, you need to have a fair amount of blue brightness for some of the guns to work well.
It may get a bit of a run at 24KHz for arcade games too.
jbmeyer13: Wolfy's Marquee isn't working? Did you spill a pint on it and short the MB?

wolfman: Always the same sarkasm Kurt that's why I never checked in until now. I knew you wouldn't give me a cheerful answer so let you hang for a while. Removed the last part you probably are a decent guy Eye to Eye.

stridsvognen: Wolfman, its768% better thanyour Marquee for sure. As it can actually display a image.

wolfman: So how's the black level on that thing? When the screen is supposed to go pitch black do you perceive it as genuinely black? Like the opening of CARS where it goes on and off pitch black. Or Prometheus with stars against a pitch black space.. or any Sci-Fi

stridsvognen: I have had multiple Digital projectors hanging together with the Marquee, the Sony is actually the first one that i actually turn on and use, so put 100 + hours on it already.

wolfman: What in the name of God possessed you to go gray.. Stoned are you?

stridsvognen: Its nice to have a new 5000$ digital to show off next to the Marquee, it makes the Marquee look like it worth all the 35000$ printed on the lable on the box.
