Awe I was hoping for some inside pics.

I heard they are delta-guns, and wanted to know if it's true.

Very nice catch. Havnt seen one since the Gipper was CIC.
Quite rare & not cheap $$ new.
I think Panny made the best under 13" sets. Good quality,
nice pix, easy to work on if you remember the red screws......

Thanks for the memories.

Looks like an old-style Trinitron CRT.

More reliable than trinitrons, but trinis have better picture quality.

I just picked up one of these sets. Any hints for the pinout of the power connector?
