WAIT! I just realized something: does broadcast monitors not have speakers? So no audio? How is this usually solved, provided I don't want to rig it into my stereo?

It would be interesting with some kind of compiled list of broadcast monitors, model and maker.

I know Snoy, JVC, and Ikegami are some of the manufacturers.

Also, how popular are these among Amiga / C64 people? Or do most people prefer the trusty 1084S?

I'll attach an image of the connector I had in mind, from a Sony monitor apparently from 1985.

What's the deal with broadcast monitors?

I know e.g. Sony broadcast monitors are popular among retro-gamers, due to "good/large scanlines", but I wonder what else they "offer". Why are they so big and heavy?

@techguruuk

In latest episode, Ep. 25, you say the new Amiga 1200 case is 3D printed, which is wrong, it's actually from new molds.

Otherwise, keep up the good work!
