Scanlines was not something to get excited about on a crt and was an annoying side effect of the technology of the day and usually only visible when sitting too close to the screen. If it was possible to produce and buy a super sharp pixel perfect crt with no visible lines back in the day that manufacturer would have cleaned up. I don't understand why you would want to put them back onto a modern flat screen destroying the image they are trying to show.

Emulation of scanlines in software is usually pretty bad as well and nothing like a real crt as they only emulate one aspect of it ..the scanlines making the image dark and not the glow or the flicker which helps blend them in. I don't remember playing an game with clearly visible black lines running through them.
