    The peak of Tube scope technology? This fine instrument was made from 1963 to 1972. At the time, it cost US$2600, without plugins. This machine has a bandpass of no less than 85 MHz! Weight: 37 Kg. Power consumption: approx. 630 W. Tube count: slightly over 80, neon bulbs not counted. More a technological wrestling match than a great scope in day to day repair work, this machine is equipped with no less than 15 6DJ8's in the vertical amp, forming a distributed amplifier to give it its 85 MHz bandpass.
