    I don't even want to think about the port noises that might escape from these loudspeakers...

    Sailors would say, "Any port in a storm".

    That's the kind of stuff they say. I've heard them.

    Looks like Axiom

    Yes, Axiom manufacturers the Bryston speakers to their specs. Pretty cool.

    Interesting as I've been looking around. Seems to be a growing trend. Retro looking clock using Russion IN-14 tubes!

    FWIW, the Nixie clock is an old thing. Heck, I've actually got one here :) It's not up and running only because I've been too lazy to add an isolation transformer to it. The one I have runs straight off the AC mains, so it's a teeny bit lethal if someone happened to grab it while well grounded. :/

    Why the fug do people put LEDs under vacuum tubes?!?!?!?!?!?!???? :(
    What is wrong with humanity in 2019? ;)


    The really cool nerds are goin' with oscilloscope clocks:

    The poseurs of course, are using the digitally synthesized variety :p

    On the other hand, I just heard someone on the radio* use the word synecdoche (correctly) and even pronounced it correctly. :) And he wasn't even talking about vinyls ;)

    There was a VERY cool video floating around the forum IIRC about 2 or 3 years ago showing the building of the nixie clock tubes. Think Dan @EndersShadow posted it, but I could be wrong...

    I'm too lazy this morning to look for it! :p

    heck, fire - when I was in grad school we had numerous pieces of equipment that used them!

    Packard Tri-Carb liquid scintillation counters and old LKB Instruments fraction collectors fairly leap to mind.

    I can't even find a photo of the old LKB FC with Nixies. I am so disappointed. :(

    (although, pack rat that he was, I would NOT be surprised that my thesis advisor might still have it squirreled away someplace) :)
