Default Tube tester: Accurate Instruments Model 157


Anyone know anything about this tester? Is it good enough for audio use? I found one in my loft - I bought it at a swap meet maybe 30 years ago, and it still seems to work, but it only gives a "quality" figure of 0-100. It needs a 110V step-down trafo, but seems fine with that...

Any use? Or go for something more substantial?
