14" CRT TV Wanted

I know it sounds like a strange request but I am looking for a 14" CRT TV in white if possible. We have just bought a N64 console and the resolution is a bit rubbish on our big telly so we thought a retro telly would go well with the retro console. If anyone has one lying around please let me know.

Cheers

Hi. Did you have any luck finding a tv? I'm also looking for one for the same purpose. Thanks.

Re: 14" CRT TV Wanted

For both of you, I suggest you enquire at your local Brockenhäuser (places selling used furniture and other tat, often operated by charities). They almost certainly won't have any CRT TVs, as apart from the two of you, there is no demand for them, but they get offered (and refuse) old TVs almost every day, so they should be able to secure one for you if you ask nicely.

Ricardo has a category for CRT TVs... Bang and Olufsen desinger pieces go for 1-10 CHF...

Re: 14" CRT TV Wanted

Thanks guys for the info. I've actually managed to grab a Bang & Olufsen MX4000 tv. It's a bit larger than I would have wanted, but the quality is great when combined with a retro video game console (NES, SNES, etc.).

I see there are a few of them on Ricardo. The only tip I can give is make sure you find one with a remote control. Without the remote it will be tricky to configure/tune.

Re: 14" CRT TV Wanted

Why buy from Ricardo when you can have one for free

Re: 14" CRT TV Wanted

thanks for all the replies......we wanted it to set up an old N64 and it turns out it works brilliantly if we do it through our projector so the TV is no longer needed.....just as well as I had no idea where I was going to put it!
