Default My first "nice" thrift store find...

Just last night I was with my kids and we were dropping some clothes off at the local Goodwill store when my oldest asked if we could go in and look around...I agreed and am pretty glad I did. I found an old tuner for $9.50. Really neat Marantz Tuner....as a matter of fact it turned out to be a model 2130!

To top it off....everything seems to work on that sucker..including the o-scope!

I was pretty darn happy with my find...I will post a couple of pic when I get home this evening.

Have a good one,

Wayne

Ok here are a couple of photos of the new Marantz 2130 Tuner. I waited to borrow a variac from a friend of mine to power it up slowly...also used a meter on the transformers to make sure that nothing was going to blow.

Well...she came up just fine (aside from a couple of lights out).

Now I just need a manual....



Have a good one,
