What's interesting is the pre-OSX Mac looks amaze-balls on an LCD. It looks *new* and modern in many respects, and oftentimes looks better than on a CRT. It's so crisp, the text so jarringly perfect. But on the Amiga? A lot of the art just looks mind-bogglingly gorgeous on the original output.
Out of the gate the Mac always put resolution over colour, so I suppose that makes sense. And Jobs was obsessed with fonts so the Mac was always at the top of the heap when it came to type. Some of those original Mac fonts are works of art for sure.
Yeah, I love that there are so many 'flavours' of CRT. I currently have four CRT monitors for my Amigas, which is way too many, but they're all quite unique in the way they render an image (I'm trying to resist adding any more to the collection - although I wouldn't knock back a nice 'baby' PVM for doing genlock stuff).
Probably the most interesting one I have is this Sony KX-14CP1. It was ex- TV studio, the picture is amazing and all of it's inputs, including RGB SCART, are on the side which makes life so much easier. It pairs beautifully with the Amiga and even has a built in speaker along the bottom.
