  • ✪ Should You Buy a CRT TV in 2017? - ARE OLD TUBE TVS WORTHLESS?

Transcription

Many of you have commented on my videos this year asking why a tech head like me might have an “old tube TV” that shows up in the background of some videos. That TV, a Sony Trinitron widescreen HD CRT TV, was actually my “holy grail” of TV finds for quite some time. I touched on this in my retro gaming setup tour, if you want a primer. You might need it, as the answer to the title is both a strong “yes!” and a harsh “no.” I’m EposVox, and in this video we’ll be deep diving into why you should, or shouldn’t, buy an old CRT television in 2017. Buckle up. Who.. what.. Orisa, where? HUH?! I just see a Rein... Oh. Cool. DUDE will you just get a ModMic already? It attaches to any headphone so you can use that good pair you like, but I'll actually be able to understand your call-outs. It also has a mute switch so I don't have to hear all those conversations with your grandma. We gotta get serious to get out of Plat. Yes, just order one tonight. Learn more via the link in the video description. Before we get too technical or complicated, I want to provide a basic answer to the question that’s rising in popularity as of late.. If you just want an old TV to play your own game consoles and dive into a bit of nostalgia - go for it! Since they’re illegal and dangerous to dispose of yourself, it’s fairly easy to find CRTs for cheap or free if you pick them up. Make sure they have the connections you need and aren’t too large - don’t want to get a huge one and then have nothing to do with it if you change your mind - and be on your way. But if you have specific desires for it, or you think the TVs will provide a truly superior experience to modern televisions, stick around. Let’s get vocab and history out of the way first. CRT means “Cathode Ray Tube” and the TVs work by shooting electrons from a cathode in the back of the box to the front. This is different than the super sized rear projection TVs of the early 2000s and very different than how modern LCD and LED TVs work. CRT technology was also widely used for computer monitors, as well. These are also worth a look if you don’t mind the size - but that’s a conversation for another video. CRT TVs are big, bulky, heavy, and don’t support modern video connections - so they’re useless, right? Well, that common perception is only partially true. They do take up more room than flat-screen TVs, but they aren’t always huge. CRTs are available in a plethora of sizes, colors and even shapes! There’s a lot more personality to CRTs than the flat black design of just about every modern TV. And not all CRTs have the bubbled-out screen that’s so prone to glares. There are a variety of flat-screened models out there. My HD CRT is flat screened and it’s quite nice in a room full of lights. There’s a few generalized reasons that people are starting to want CRT TVs again. Nostalgia, compatibility with older video hardware such as VCRs and LaserDisc players, or to play retro video games. Most of this choice - other than direct compatibility concerns - comes down to user preference and subjective qualifications when it comes to TV sets. But there are actually a couple ways in which CRT TVs are legitimately superior to modern TVs - perceived “depth” or dynamic range, and input latency. We’ll touch on these first. Now, before you go leaving an angry comment about -- oh, too late. Technically normal LCD or LED TVs and CRT TVs have the same “dynamic range.” This is referred to as “Standard Dynamic Range” or “SDR” - a light variance measurement, or “maximum luminance,” of 100 nits. This has been the standard for a very long time, as it was based on the limits of CRT technology. Only recently are we seeing a change to this with HDR technology for new OLED TVs. It will be a while before this becomes mainstream, but I’m super stoked to see HDR become the new normal. The issue, here, is in how different types of TV actually display light. Despite having the same measured dynamic range, CRTs and Plasma TVs actually appear to the eye to be better in this regard. Some often refer to this as the TV’s image having “more depth.” Blacks are deeper, whites are brighter, colors pop more. LCDs more often look flat due to the backlighting’s inability to vary brightness enough, or on a per-pixel basis like OLED. Many have tried conveying this bit of why they prefer a CRT image, but haven’t been able to properly explain what they mean by “depth”, but this is it. Older films with practical effects that are hurt by sharpness, more punchy and stylistic films, etc. all can look a lot better on a CRT than a flat-looking LCD. But it is still personal preference. We’ll touch on resolution in a minute, but I did want to add in here that if you’re considering something like a CRT, keep in mind that this should - in all likelihood - be something you add to an arsenal of media consuming options, not a replacement. Modern games and some modern films and TV shows want to take advantage of their new “high definition” formatting and thus rely more heavily on small, sharp details rather than a punchy style. CRTs inherently have much lower resolutions than modern TVs and I have found myself to get headaches from eye strain trying to play newer shooters or watch streams with a lot of text on even my big HD CRT unless I’m sitting right on top of it. It’s just softer. The other serious point I mentioned before was input latency, or input lag. Digital equals processing time equals input delay. It’s always there, even if it’s low enough that you can’t detect it. However, generally speaking analog means no input lag. It’s not quite that simple, I know, but it’s a good rule to keep in mind. There are digital CRTs, too. These are the “HD CRTs” like the one I have. These were released during the end of the CRT era, mainly by Sony as part of the legendary “Trinitron” line, and actually have digital conversion happening - which can add input lag. This is worth noting for purists and those focusing on twitchy games. I’ve not had any trouble with my HD CRT, but anytime I post about it in my Facebook groups, there are lots of people who dislike it for the input lag, haha. HD CRTs also will not play light gun games as a result. Any 4 by 3 aspect ratio normal CRT will be fine, however, as they are analog only. And yes, no input lag is glorious and the only way some people will play games. In fact, I’m now also digging into a particular CRT PC monitor for this very reason, if I can get my hands on it. Platformers, rhythm games, fighting games, and shooters all benefit heavily from the lack of input lag. Just remember the controller, console, any audio video switchers, and so on all play a role in input latency, as well. You may be used to playing modern game consoles on LCD or LED TVs and be confused as to why someone might complain about input lag that you’ve never noticed. It may not be a big deal for digital, 1080p signals to be displayed on your 1080p TV - but that’s because it’s a native signal. If you hook up older game consoles to your TV, the TV itself has to upscale the signal - often to crazy extents to come from 240p and such - which adds a lot of lag to the experience. And the TVs just aren’t made to handle these signals so it often winds up looking not quite right. 240p, 480i, 480p, sometimes even 720p and 1080i - if your analog TV accepts the signal, it will display it nicely and cleanly. And in fact, displaying lower-resolution signals on a TV with more vertical resolution is actually a look some gamers prefer. This creates the phenomena referred to as “scan lines” where you can see the space between pixels being displayed, usually in horizontal rows. To some, this is the fundamental requirement for a “retro” look. I, myself, am not currently sold on the idea, just yet, but I get the appeal. That’s another reason why I’m happy with my HD CRT where others are not - to me it displays consoles like the Playstation 1 and Nintendo 64 via S-Video perfectly cleanly. But without scanlines, it’s basically heresy to others. To each their own! Compatibility is a huge selling point for CRTs, too. On top of image processing issues that I already touched on, the actual inputs are important, too. You can get CRTs that accept RF signals, composite, s-video, and even component, all for analog video glory. Of what I just listed, component is the best. Component can actually carry 720p and 1080i HD signals, too, which is how I have most things hooked up to my HD CRT TV. But if you’re using an analog CRT, you’re likely maxed at 480i or 480p if you’re lucky. This means you can connect anything from the old wood grain Atari boxes to the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Pretty impressive. But there’s another connection type that is superior to composite and s-video, and even to component depending on who you ask. The almighty SCART, or RGB. You might not have heard of this, and that’s because this was not a supported connection on TVs in North America, mainly just Europe. Japan had a very similar connection called JP-21. This is a big, wide multi-pin plug that carries RGB and a sync signal to the TV for a much more accurate color representation and sharper signal to the screen. Despite TVs not supporting this in the states, some consoles like the Playstation 1 and 2 still output this natively from the multi-out port, and most consoles can be easily modded to output this signal, too. This is great for a few different applications. If you choose to not go the CRT route and stick with your modern TV, you can get a fancy video scaler like the X-RGB mini Framemeister which does a lot better job scaling up the signal than your TV will, and can do so more cleanly by using RGB inputs. You can mod some home CRT sets to accept RGB inputs, though the value of this is questionable to me at the moment. The other use for RGB output is to connect the consoles to another type of CRT TV that we haven’t talked about. Most CRTs you see or hear about are consumer televisions - but there were CRTs used for professional reasons, too. Video production, television broadcasting, and so on. These are generally grouped together and referred to as “PVMs.” However, the PVM acronym specifically actually refers to Sony’s Trinitron Professional Video Monitor line. They also had some BVM or Broadcast Video Monitors as well, which can be of higher quality than the PVMs. Other companies such as JVC and Panasonic also made professional video monitors, just called Color Video Monitors or CVMs. I have a couple of these from the 1990s here. Whatever you call them, they have higher quality screens and phosphors and tend to generally provide a MUCH higher quality image than consumer TV sets. They come in a variety of sizes from this tiny one here, to a more medium size here, to about a 28-inch or so size, as well. Now, not all of them support RGB inputs, but many do - and these are highly sought after by retro gamers as THE CRT to game on for high quality retro gaming. Even if you can get one without RGB, it’s still probably one of the best Composite or S-Video gaming experiences you can have. The first time I hooked up the PS1 via composite to this little JVC one here, I was blown away by how amazing the original Crash Bandicoot can look. It’s so goooood. If you want more information about RGB and how to set it up, check out the “My Life in Gaming” YouTube channel. They make great guides about RGB setups and hardware. So there’s really 3 main kinds of CRT TVs you can probably get. Standard 4 by 3 analog CRT consumer TVs, newer, digital widescreen HD CRTs, and the professional PVMs, BVMs, and CVMs. There are more variants than that, and even analog widescreens, but these are the main ones we run across. Another thing that I recently discovered while spending a sick week on my couch recently is that web video can actually benefit greatly by being displayed through a CRT compared to a LCD screen. Keep the issue with small, sharp details and text in mind, though. The lower resolution and way CRTs present an image means that I virtually never see compression blocking from live streams or lower quality YouTube videos. It may be my favorite way to watch Twitch now. Blocking and muddiness from low-bitrate footage drives me nuts on my normal screens, but isn’t really noticeable on my CRT. Pretty crazy. But choose wisely, as things are not all sunshine and rainbows on the CRT front. I mentioned before that HD CRTs like my not-so-mini-Trini actually perform digital processing like a modern TV and thus will have some input lag and no scan lines. That’s something you need to look out for. Also, some CRTs only have RF antenna inputs, sadly. I just recently picked up a clear TV as part of a two set, and the clear one only has that input. It can still be used for super old pre-Nintendo consoles, and NES and such if I want an inferior signal, but otherwise I have to use a composite to RF adapter. It works, and somehow looks better than normal RF, but isn’t perfect. And again, the size and weight are a big deal. It may not sound like it at first, but it really is. Once you start getting to the 34 + inch size range, these things can weigh over 200 pounds. And it’s by no means an evenly-distributed weight, it’s all in the front. I was able to move the old Magnavox I had around, but to even move my Trinitron forward with the stand, I need to wait on someone to help me. I’m not a super buff guy, but I don’t exactly run into many instances when I just can’t move something. This thing won’t budge over the lip onto my carpet. You also need a hefty TV stand for the bigger sets. The softness of the image is a big deal here. Despite our parents always mis-informedly telling us not to sit so close to the TV, sitting far away from it will lead to eye strain. I’m wanting to move mine forward a few inches, as trying to focus on small details from my couch isn’t fun. So then you either need to sit much closer to it or get a bigger TV. Which means more bulk and more weight. Also, the smaller the screen, the sharper an image will appear. But tiny screens do get a little awkward to play on. And if you bite off more than you can chew with a giant CRT, it’s not something you can easily get rid of, either. There’s the issue of physically moving it, sure, but it’s not something you can just dispose of. You should never put electronics in the trash, but rather send them to recycling centers or send in programs such as through Staples, but it’s actually illegal to put CRT TVs and monitors in the trash. They’re dangerous to waste employees and to the environment. Some cities have recycling centers you can drop them off at, but the end locations are actually nothing but a stockpile of these, as they have been completely unable to keep up with the disassembly process. If you do need to get rid of one, I highly request you start with Craigslist, local Facebook seller groups, LetGo and Offerup. Don’t expect to get much money for it, but list it for free and someone will take it. Or put it on the edge of your yard near the street with a “FREE” sign on it and pickers will likely grab it. While CRTs were built to last, they are often very old at this point and can have issues. Geometry issues seem to be most common - where the picture starts to skew, become off-center, or certain areas of the image just get totally jacked up. Often these are fixable - but who’s going to fix it? There aren’t repair shops anymore, and most of the people who knew how to fix them are fading away. And don’t think it’s like a modern computer or something that you can just crack open and fix yourself - the capacitors in CRTs carry enough voltage to kill you, and the draining process is still pretty risky and scary. HD CRTs like mine have a HDMI input, but often don’t process it right. Ones like mine sometimes apply a huge, uneven overscan to the HDMI input, which has all but made it useless for me. This is theoretically fixable through the service menus with an official remote for the TV, but it’s also not that easy, either. The service menus are hard to navigate, not well documented, and provide much risk for screwing things up with no real fix. Plus, from what I’ve come to understand, if you adjust to compensate for an overscan, it affects all inputs, not just the HDMI. So then your analog inputs will be underscanned. There’s no winning there. I use my HDMI input with a 50 foot HDMI cable running to my PC so I can watch web video on it, but run everything else via component to avoid this issue. That being said, there are quite a few HD models that have no trouble with this. Especially from the Sony XBR line. CRTs release a lot of static from the screen upon powering on, and can often produce a very high pitched sound. If you went to elementary school with CRTs, you may remember being annoyed by hearing this from a TV left on in a classroom but not everyone could hear it. Some can even see the actual image flicker or refresh if things aren’t perfectly in sync. These two can lead users to get headaches from CRT usage, which can really suck. The bubbled screen TVs provide better viewing angles, but can also wind up with a lot more serious glares, too. A glass screen plus a light in front of it will not get along well. I can’t make the choice of picking up a CRT for you. It can be an easy decision “oh pick up this little old TV to play old consoles,” or it can be a super involved process, depending on how you want to approach it. I can’t, in good faith, blindly just say “Yeah go buy one,” but I do think it can be a good experience for many with an open mind. I started with the medium-sized Magnavox from my childhood that began to give me headaches, and currently now have SIX CRT televisions in my apartment. 3 CVMs, a HD CRT and two small normal CRTs that I recently added. And I haven’t even started bringing in PC monitors yet - but that’s for a different video. There are options available to you, factors to consider, use cases to really evaluate, and risks involved - but a CRT TV can be an amazing gaming and movie watching experience. As far as picking up CRTs goes, look for local Facebook yard sale and general trade groups, Craigslist, the LetGo and OfferUp apps, actual yard and garage sales - things like that. If you want to get serious about CRTs, consider joining a Facebook group that I’m a part of called “The CRT Collective” linked in the video description. To get your hands on a PVM, you might consider contacting local news stations and seeing if they have any remaining in storage that they would be willing to part with. Some have had success with that. Just remember that eBay won’t be great since these aren’t exactly easy to ship. I’m EposVox, here to make tech easier and more fun. I hope you enjoyed this fun video.

Production

Originally considered for Gladys Knight & the Pips and later for Diana Ross, as "I Wanna Be Free", "I Want You Back" explores the theme of a lover who decides that he was too hasty in dropping his partner. An unusual aspect about "I Want You Back" was that its main lead vocal was performed by a tween, Michael Jackson.

"I Want You Back" was released on October 7, 1969[7] and was the first Jackson 5 single to be released by Motown[8] and the first song written and produced by The Corporation, a team comprising Motown chief Berry Gordy, Freddie Perren, Alphonso Mizell, and Deke Richards.[6] It also is the first of four Jackson 5 number-ones released in a row (the others being "ABC" – 1970, "The Love You Save" – 1970, and "I'll Be There" – 1970) and the first Jackson 5 song recorded in Los Angeles, California; the quintet had previously been recording Bobby Taylor-produced remakes of other artists' hits, including "Who's Lovin' You", the B-side to "I Want You Back", at Hitsville U.S.A. in Detroit, Michigan. The "I Want You Back" bassline is considered by many as the greatest of all time[by whom?] and thus has sparked many debates about who played the bass during the recording. Famously The Funk Brothers were Motown's backup musicians and after the company's relocation to Los Angeles band members changed.[9] Many tend to believe that it was James Jamerson who played the bass during recording but he was most active from 1962-1968. During the later years of his career Jamerson had grown unreliable due to substance abuse.[9] Most evidence suggest that a new member of the Funk Brothers, Wilton Felder, was the bassist.[10]

Although Gladys Knight had been the first to mention the Jacksons to Berry Gordy, and Bobby Taylor brought the Jackson brothers to Motown,[8] Motown credited Diana Ross with discovering them.[8] This was done not only to help promote the Jackson 5, but also to help ease Ross' transition into a solo career,[8] which she began in 1970 soon after the Jackson 5 became a success.[8]

Live performances

The Jackson 5 performed "I Want You Back" during all of their world tours, either as a full song or as a part of the Jackson 5 Medley in concerts (which also included "ABC" and "Mama's Pearl", later on switched with "The Love You Save" in 1973). During their second-ever television appearance (in an episode of The Hollywood Palace hosted by Diana Ross & the Supremes),[11] the Jackson 5 performed "I Want You Back" along with Sly & the Family Stone's "Sing a Simple Song," The Delfonics' "Can You Remember," and James Brown's "There Was a Time". They also performed the song on American Bandstand and the Andy Williams Show.[12]

Michael Jackson performed the song as part of the "Jackson 5 Medley" (which also included the songs "The Love You Save" and "I'll Be There") during all of his world tours - the Bad World Tour, the Dangerous World Tour and the HIStory World Tour.[13] The song was to be performed at Jackson's This Is It comeback concerts in London, which were cancelled due to his death.[citation needed] The song was performed live at the Michael Jackson: 30th Anniversary Special in 2001, in which Jackson reunited with his brothers on stage for the first time since 1984.[14]

Reception and legacy

The song has sold six million copies worldwide.[15] In 1999, "I Want You Back" was also inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.[16]

"I Want You Back" ranks number 121 on Rolling Stone's list of the '500 Greatest Songs of All Time'.[6] It also ranks ninth on Rolling Stone's list of the '100 Greatest Pop Songs since 1963'.[15]

In 2006, Pitchfork Media named it the second best song of the 1960s, adding that the chorus contains "possibly the best chord progression in pop music history."[17] A June 2009 article by The Daily Telegraph called it "arguably the greatest pop record of all time".[18] Digital Spy called the song "one of the most enduring pop singles of the sixties".[19]

The single has been awarded Silver certification on August 22, 2014 by the British Phonographic Industry Association.[20]

"I Want You Back" has long been considered one of the most sampled songs in all of Hip hop music.[21] The song has been sampled over 60 times since its release in 1969. Prominent artists such as Jay-Z, The Notorious B.I.G. and Justin Bieber have all used parts of the song producing some of their biggest hits.[22] The song is also considered to have one of the greatest chord progressions in Pop music.[21]
