Sounds good to me.

Yes, almost.  The HR6000 is a slightly improved model 5000.  It has
the same 3" crt.  It's improvement (at the feature bullet level) is that
it has dynamic focus added for increased sharpness in the corners. I'm
not sure how much distortion there is in the corners, however, when the
tube is only a 3" one.

But anyway, the 3000~6000 were the same "line" with improvements
along the way, but all the same basic design and form-factor. I
had a 6000 briefly (eBay) but returned it because the unit had
an arcing high voltage section which rendered it useless.  That'll
be one of the advantages when I get around to selling my 5000
and 5000s units -- I've actually used them and know they work. :-)

There's a big jump to a brand new design when going to the models
7000 and 8000 (which personally I suspect to be the same hardware
with different firmware to distinguish features in the two).

Well, the images can be serious, but one might not get
"serious quality" from it.  Unless of course the original is
one of those done a bit soft on purpose.
