That'll be interesting, i well remember stantons although by the time i was on the scene they were mainly a record shop and sold a few accessories like styli and cartridges etc, about 1967.

Thanks to andrewferguson for the neat little Pye tuner that arrived safely yesterday, very well cushioned in its box- if only all suppliers paid similar attention to packaging. A "proper" tuner with sturdy air gang variable and well put together, I haven't traced the DC powering arrangement through yet but three IF filters and a 3SK73 RF stage suggest good VHF/FM capability and LW adds a bit of casual DX interest plus "storm approaching" heads-up!

Hello,

Many thanks to Richard (mole42uk) for the Clavioline manual.

Crikey, it’s a fearsome gadget, the restoration of which, will no doubt keep me out of trouble for a while.

Interesting... the idea of an astable multivibrator with one CR network and not two.

Regards
Terry

I would like to thank Barry for the 78 records! There are some great ones amongst them I have fired up the Dansette and I am listening to "stupid Cupid" I am ready to turn the volume down when Winnie Atwell drops onto the turntable I'm sure they wheeled the piano off with smoke coming out of it after some of her recordings!
Thanks Barry !
