    Thanks. Didn't need the power but came across a deal that was too good to pass up.

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

    :)

    (I like that HP distortion meter, too)

    Sorry I should have indicated what it is. It's the inside of a deHavilland Model 222 tape playback electronics during a fairly recent tube exchange.

    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!

    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).

    "Wow, there's a lotta stuff in there!"
    All of that circuitry was replaced by one or two integrated circuits within a few years. Dolby Labs introduced a complete alphabet soup of noise reduction systems with "SR" being one of the later.

    Yup.
    And now (2020) no one's making Dolby B ICs, and as a consequence the few current production cassette decks use DNR or (perhaps?) generic NR schemes. :|

    I didn't know that, there's a few Dolby chips for sale on eBay from time to time. I've sort of collected a few: Teac AN180, Sony NR335, Advent 100A (2) Advent 100 and a British Integrex unit that was offered as a kit. I'm going to work on the 100A and see if some new parts can make it better sounding. The Integrex unit sounds quite good after a few minutes being on.

    Is the 100A the little/cheap one from Advent @KennethSwauger ? I still haven't managed to unearth the one downstairs (imagine that). :/

    Oh, PS (and not really on topic, but what the heck!?) -- you might like this collection of brochure images (mostly covers/first pages):

  • KennethSwaugerKennethSwauger Moderator Posts: 7,063
    No the 100 and 100A are full sized units only slightly narrower than a standard component width. The 100 was the first unit and there was an optional microphone preamp that could be added. The 100A only differed from 100 in that it added the microphone preamp. The unit you might be referring to is the Advent 101 a smaller unit that I haven't seen around much.
    Those brochure images are great, love all the Ampex ones.

    Yup! Looks pretty good, though. Nice power supply (two of them), and some decent efforts at cooling. Not surprising it’s 15Kg/33lbs weight!

    It runs quite hot, even when playing at lower volumes.

    Lots of power on tap at 120wpc into 8ohm and 200wpc into 4ohm.
