I think using vintage CRTs for our Amigas is great since it brings that original experience back in all it's beam-scanning glory. Personally I can't do this due to various reasons.
I'm in the US with European hardware. My NEC Multisync 6FG. It is a beast (80lbs...). Due to it's 21in 90 degree deflection tube it's around 3 ft.(!) deep and only can handle 220VAC @ 50 hz. The picture is amazing and all, but I just don't have the room for it. I had a look at the power supply shortly after I returned to the States and realized at the time that modifying it was well above my pay grade (sigh).

Originally I had 5 Amigas and 3 monitors. I was in the coin-op business and so had access to original video game monitors. When I needed a monitor I'd just connect R/G/B/sync/GND to a 23 pin vid connector and off I went. Inline 5 pole 3 position switch and flipped between the various computers as needed. Oh.. I'm sidetracking.. sry.
I know that the Amiga's native display isn't all that great on modern monitors, but for the time being, I'd like to at least be work with them as I gradually get them back on line.
Maybe I'm overthinking it, but I'm not sure how to get from Amiga's native Khz freq. to the digital HDMI/DVI/digital port world. One of my machines(A3000) is RTG capable (Thanks Picasso!) but, to be honest I'd fall out of my chair if that machine started and ran after 20 years...
I assume others have dealt with this in the past and I'm curious how you guys solved it?
I have access to a few older LCD 4:3 monitors which have 15pin D-Sub connectors, although I'd like to stick with more modern hardware if possible.
I did find these online, which answered my question to a degree:

Still curious how other members have solved this? Or am I breaking the hallowed "Keep it Vintage!" mantra?
