The CRT Whine

As more and more television sets abandon the use of the CRT for displaying images, you will no longer be able to pass a room or a house and say, hey they've got a TV on in there. The infamous horizontal oscillator whine, at 15kHz or so, is a symbol of great human innovation and creativity, if you ask me.

A complex machine which conveys a full color motion image, with sound, to an audience hundreds of miles away.

Don't know about you guys, but the CRT is dying at an alarmingly fast rate, and I'm going to have one around for the rest of my life, even if it's a late-model-BPC set.

Standard-def is fine for me, considering how little I watch.

There are a few HD CRTs out there. Or at least there were for a while. I've seen three.

I haven't been able to hear the whine of a crt TV in years. We must lose the ability to hear high frequencies or something with age. I've mentioned that whine to people in the past and no one has ever seemed to know what I was talking about.

It's not all bad news. LCD is no CRT replacement, but OLED might be. And CRT's do have their drawbacks.

Still, CRT's are built sturdier. They have to be. :P

So that's what makes that sound. My trusty Sony KV-1311CR rings like the Liberty Bell when I turn it on.

Reading this I realized I can still hear something from my TV in the dead quiet. This is funny to me as I have trouble distinguishing speech/music in situations with moderate background noise - been that way since my mid-20's.

When I was a kid, I could hear the whine as soon as I walked in a house with a TV running.

Good riddance! I hate that whine. I'm the only one in my family who can hear it, they are oblivious to it. Sometimes I come into the room with the TV and its blank but still on, no one else would notice since they can't hear that it is still on.

And then they complain to ME about sometimes hearing my music a little bit.
