It is truly Amazing all the Horrible Events life throws at You

It is truly amazing all the horrible events life throws at you, foreclosures, divorce, and downsizing, and moving from house to house. You try to save things that are of value, or have sentimental value. This Sony television has been moved from storage shed to storage shed, kept in horrible conditions and now I finally have time in my life to bring her inside and see if she still preforms, and yes she is a rugged survivor. This Sony Trinitron color television is a model KV-1926RA, and she was made in Mexico in the month of January in the year 1990. When you think of all the millions of good working CRT analog televisions that were throwaway by thoughtless people over the past thirty years it bogles your mind.

Model KV-1926RA, Sony Trinitron Color Television, Made to Last

It is amazing the things that Survive through the Years

It is amazing the things that survive through the years. I remember just a few years ago people could not get ride of their analog television fast enough, millions thrown into land fields, and crushed in trash compactors at recycling centers. Now only a few of each model or design are left, and many have become very expensive and collectable. This is the only Sony model KV-1926RA, color television, that I could find anywhere, no photos of one, none for sale on eBay. I can even remember people at church and neighbors happy bragging with delight at body slamming their 32 inch Sony, or console Zenith into a huge dumpsters just to hear the CRT explode on impact. I was like but it was such a great television you were watching it just last night. They are like have you not heard they are obsolete, analog televisions are being replace by something new and different. I was like you folks are crazy and very wasteful.

Sony took a lot of Pride back in the last years of Anolog Televisions

This is still a Wonderful Cathode Ray Tube Sony Television, Glad I kept it

Here sits the Sony in the mess of my Livingroom, I have been rummaging through my past, and this television was in a shed that was occupied by a family of raccoons. They had destroyed a lot of vintage electronics, and I was for sure this model was do for, but I was wrong, she plays and sounds very good. The color is sharp and the speakers are working with amazing sound.

This Sony KV-1926RA might be the last of Her one left of Her Design

This Sony Trinitron color television model KV-1926RA might be the last of her one left of her design. We have done such a good job of destroying well made analog television in the past that many of these era televisions are now very rare, and valuable now. They are becoming priceless collectables. It is a sad cometary of our wasteful society. We are always wanting the latest most trendy design, or flavor of the week. Sometimes what we throughway is much better made and of lasting value than the newer cheaply manufactured product we are frothing at the mouth to have in our home or office.

The Sony VCR player SLV-779HF, VHS player is doing an amazing job as well and the remote. Sony television model KV-1926RA is doing an awesome job.

A Gullible Public throwing Away Priceless Treasures

I can remember folks hauling away all their analog televisions like they were trash, now the hipsters are collecting them like they are priceless gold, sadly and lot of great models are gone forever. Many Zenith, RCA, Magnavox, Curtis Mathes, and Sony's do not even have one model left of some designs. They were all throwaway back many years ago. Throwaway not because they were broke, but because the gullible public were told that is not

This Sony 1990 still works like a New Television Set

The fact is that these Sony had been stored in a shed for over six years, bitter cold winters, and hot steamy summers and she still works like a new television set.

Not sure when or why We became such a Throwaway Society

I am not sure when or why we became such a throwaway society, but it is most appalling to see the massive amount of waste. Americans throwaway all their LPs, to get CDs, and now they are throwing away the CDs because everything is now up in the clouds! But now the hipsters are collecting LPs, and even 8 track tapes. I always kept my LPs and 8 track tapes, because I enjoyed the quality in these products. Tragically most Americans are like heard animals, doing whatever they are told to do with out question.

Sony made a great Television during the Golden Age of Analog Televisions

Sony made a great television, just like Zenith, RCA, Magnavox, and Curtis Mathes did back during the golden age of analog televisions.

Sony took great deal of Pride in their Workmanship

Sony took great deal of pride in their workmanship, notice how they give a birth date, or manufacture date on each product run, this Sony was made on January 1990. They Sony VHS player that is playing to movie in these photos was also made during this era, and still works like new. Sad that the follow your leader mentality of the declutter nation has also gotten ride of their VHS collections, Selectavision disc collections, Laser Disk collection, and every other format you can think of, because everything is up in the clouds now. Wonder what they will do when a natural disaster or even a war takes down those clouds, they will not have any format to fall back on to remember all the amazing movies and shows that will then be gone for good. It is rather amazing that the VHS tapes, and Selectavision movies are now bringing top dollar among collectors, because like the VCR players, disc players, and analog television they are rare and valuable now.

Sony had the Creation date for each Product, this Sony was made January 1990

I really love how Sony had the creation date for each product. Their amazing attention to detail is the reason why so many of their surving analog televions are still going strong today.

We have throwaway Enough of our Past, if you have a working Analog TV keep it.

The moral of the story is if you have an old analog television that is still working great, then keep it. We have throwaway enough of our past. These televisions are from a very amazing era in our nations history. The era of video stores, and television show rooms, with big floor models for sale that were a source of pride for many households. Families would gather around their television sets at night and watch the world news, and many wonderful shows, television specials, and later came the VHS tapes, the Laser Discs, and then DVDs.
