Lafayette GA-11 audio generator

Do anybody out there know something about this generator? I can manage to get one for about 150 euros, which is a fairly low price for a - supposed - low THD (for quick'n'dirty testing, at least) 10Hz-1MHz sine/square generator with digital freq readout and output calibrated attenuator, but I can't even find Lafayette's web site...

I used to love when the new Lafayette catalog came in the mail.


Somehow, this product looks a lot newer than something from the old Lafayette. I'd be surprised if this Lafayette had anything to do with the old chain of stores.


Of course, I've been surprised before.

That audio generator looks a lot nicer and newer than the Lafayette kits that I remember from the 1970's.

There's a whole lot of recent intruments with Lafayette brand: digital multimeters, scopes, function generators and so on:

Unfortunately I can't manage to find any info about the manufacturer or the instruments themselves...
The sine/square generator I was asking about looks pretty similar to a somewhat older Wien bridge unit by Trio/Kenwood:

or a more recent Instek:

it seems the same unit rebranded with a few updates (the counter, an auxilary output and so on)...
