    This thread has become great! I’ll post a couple as I’m motivated.

    Cambridge Audio T500 Dual Superhetrodyne Tuner.

    And that right there is why I like my analog tuners.

    That is an analog tuner. It has a digital display, and may well use digital frequency synthesis tuning -- but the signal comin' in, goin' through, and comin' out the RCA output jacks is all analog, all the time.

    :|

    The large empty box aesthetic was far from novel when that tuner was made, too.
    This Yamaha CT-610II (which I reckon I posted before) was/is a bit notorious in that regard way back ca. 1977. They do look nice, though, and they're not expensive used -- and they actually sound pretty good. Better than one might think. :#

    ummm... uhhh... profoundly modified PAS, PAS-2, or PAS-3 @KennethSwauger?

    (I like that HP distortion meter, too)

    oh... I had (obviously) no clue... but then, that's not a component I am even familiar with! I'm not peripatetic, I just pretend to be! ;)

    It looks very cool!

    Those are beasts! Is it original Mondale (sp) or Klipsch era?

    It is the Klipsch era 8008 mkii which is electronically the same as the 8008bb from Mondial...just upgraded aesthetics. I'm really digging this amp with the 1.2tl's. I think the amp is even larger in person than it looks in pictures online.

    Let me know if you ever want to move it down the road.

    It’s already found a new home with a friend of mine. Great amp to be honest, don’t pass one up if you get a chance at one at the right price. Probably my second favorite amp behind my pass labs. I still want to try out a set of Palladium monoblocks if I come across a set.

    ^^^ Wow, there's a lotta stuff in there!

    I have one of the little Advent Dolby B NR units... I can't remember the model number offhand. 'twas a dump find (of course); I've never actually tried it -- come to think of it. I'll drag it out & snap a piccie or two anon (if & when circumstances permit).
