The 534 was the G8 I owned for many years, and was a second set at my mother's house until my father passed away.

Where did it go? Was it still working when it left your ownership? Ever thought about getting one again?

In answer to the above:

  1. The local tip.
  2. Yes.
  3. No.

It was, sadly, just another big ol' delta gun colour telly getting in the way upstairs even though IMO it was a very attractive set. It'd be early 90s when it was laid to rest. Of the colour sets that came through my hands back then, that rated joint second favourite with my Decca CS1830 after my Telefunken 743. Nice picture, easy to work on. Particularly liked the location of the convergence controls!
