Hi all,

Got a IIci (Still lookin for a quadra), and it would seem it will only drive a fixed frequency, sync-on-green.

Any options on the choicest monitor? (Or maybe at least the most common) Smile

The best match for a IIci would be the AppleColor High-Resolution RGB display:

It had a high-quality Trinitron CRT and was launched alongside the Mac II line, and was very common to see used with them.

For Quadras and later II series (like the IIsi and IIvi/vx), the common monitor was the Macintosh Color Display (such unique names Apple had back then):

Also had a Trinitron CRT but included a tilt/swivel base.

It's interesting that I cannot get any display to work with a DB15 to HD15 or an apple multisync 15. Well... and the speaker either. The only monitor I can get to work is an Apple 12" (512x384).

Quirky machine.

Board looks good, headphone jacks works as well Wink
