Default Hp3580a

Is this low freq spectrum analyser worth getting and for how much fully functional please? I have been trying to find the manual with no success. Any ideas?

The 80dB dynamic range seems a bit retsricted but of course can be extended by another filter to the fundamental if the instrument is quiet enough. Does this apply to the 3580A?

1. Does it function properly?
2. What's the price? Several hundred dollars for any HP
instrument is generally a good deal.
3. Real dynamic range is usually better than this.
4. It's a swept analyzer -- very slow for narrow band
5. Probably the last LF swept analyzer. I have both this
and an FFT analyzer -- the latter is more convenient to use
