I can relate to that story as well Gavin both in video and recently in audio when I replaced my aging Telefunken ECC 803S with a similar pair of virtually new tubes. It was like I had new amplifiers.

..I'm almost embarrassed to say...Ken reprimanded me for letting it go so long but I had well over 4000 hrs on the original bulb but believe it or not the picture was still relatively bright. Of course it's a lot like the frog in boiling water...you get so used to it you lose touch with how poor the picture actually is. With Ken's calibration eqpt and his magic touch the results are striking!

thanks! will try to keep track...what is industry recommendation? 2000 hours? 3000 hours?

I'd change the bulb every one thousand BR (1080p/2D) movies. ...2,000 hours max.
And for best; every 800 4K UHD/HDR BR movies (including 2K/3D). :b

thanks!

Thank you! I am starting to think this $200 cable works perfectly...paint it. I have asked our contractor about painting it.
