2003 Sony Trinitron serendipity

I had somebody message me today out of the blue telling me that they had an early 90's Sony that I could have or else it was going to be thrown away. I'd met this person once, I went to school with her daughter and went to the estate sale of their relative last year and picked up three RCAs. I was very surprised when I saw the set, it was a like new 27" KV-27FS210, with the remote. I was very happy to take it, and they were happy to get rid of it. I got it home, and it replaced my 24" Trinitron that I got from the thrift store back in January. My old 24" set has WOW audio, and this new set unfortunately does not, so sound quality suffers. However, being a low hour set, the CRT is very bright and shows a picture you'd expect from a Trinitron.

At that time Sony had 2 levels, the FS & the FV. I dont
remember the difference but IIRC the FV had more jacks,
better audio amp & speakers.
Also dont remember if the 24" came in FV level, I just remember
the 24" being hard to keep in stock. It was a perfect fit in many apps.

If I want better sound, I use a computer sound system with the sub-woofer. Good enough.

I own the same set and will grab another if/when I see one. Nice score. It's actually a Hi-Scan too.
