RE: A Brace Of Co-op C2001s

@malcscott I would dearly love to see the Ledco circuit if anyone has a copy, I don't think I've ever even seen a picture of a board. The regulation is as good as the original and with all the RBM cha...

RE: A Brace Of Co-op C2001s

RE: Breathing new life into a Sony FH-215R

RE: Tektronix TSG 95 Pathfinder PAL/NTSC

I don't own a Phabrix (because price!) but I have the use of them at work. They run Linux (Tux appears at switch-on) and are damned handy, especially the one that has a fibre SFP as so much of my work...

Breathing new life into a Sony FH-215R

This wee beastie has been on my ‘most wanted’ list for some time, it’s a little boom box (well, quite a big heavy one actually!) from 1987, and would have been quite expensive when new. It’s a modular...
