Color CRT from the 80s

Launched in the mid-1980s, the 13" Sony KV-1370R television model offered support for both composite video and RF inputs. R at the end of the model number denotes support for composite. I have this set both in Grey and White. I'm sure there are many other color variants. There was a revision made to 1370R later in the 80s. Later revision chassis had an audio fault, which is something we will delve into this article.

It's important to note that the KV-1370R operates with a hot chassis setup, meaning the ground isn't isolated on the low voltage side. Consequently, modifying it for RGB input is not straightforward. However, for many television enthusiasts and collectors, the Sony KV-1370R is treasured as a relic of the past. It is often best to preserve it in its original state.
