Default What's in your workshop?

I just spent a week cleaning stuff up -- moved a pair of HP6129C power sources adjacent to the work table, with a Fluke calibrator on top -- the lab as it is set up now has a GR Noise Source, Wavetek sweep gen, couple of HP meters, smaller scope (got rid of the 7704a), HP distortion analyzer, RF signal generator, and a pair of Heath supplies -- one for HV, the other 50V regulated, replaced the ancient Dell with a somewhat less ancient HP and a flat panel display. The only thing which is "new" is the flat panel display, :

the HP6129C's cost $19 each ! one I drove about 50 miles to pick up, the other was shipped.

Everything else, except the HP339 distortion analyzer (and Tek scope) was less than $100).

you got yourself a good deal then Jack........all the used gear around my area is going for big bucks

I did have some nice gear at one time but I was in the city at a Jobsite and someone broke into my truck and got away with about 20 grand worth of equipment.....insurance company gave me squat because i did not have paper work for it

Jack,
Nice sets of equipments there!
I think I have the same Marantz receiver that you got there. Everything works except the FM. What about yours?

I wouldn't call it a work shop, but it is where I do all my DIY stuff. Well almost all, in the garage is a table saw, router table and drill press. Don't like doing the messy stuff in the house.

It's the Marantz 2250B -- the one my son pulled out of the garbage at Boston College last year. I have it working fine -- a little backlash in the "gyro" tuning.

if and when I get the schematic I will compare notes with you.

Yes that is my home theater using three Carver amps; A760x for the mains, A500x for the subs and a TFM-35 for the surrounds. I run all DIY tube stuff in the living room through the Altec A7's and have three more systems in the "workshop" on the shelves to the left of the picture; Marantz 2270 with JBL L-26, HK A500 push pull amp with custom JBL corner horns and a Yamaha CR-640 with some JBL SATS and Carver subs. You can never have to much gear.
