Welcome aboard Ed, you in deep trouble mow. These guys will get their hooks into you and it will be .....well you,ll see.

I am sitting here listening to Glenn Miller as we speak, thanks to Ed and his brother.

So, you have two TFM 15 cb's as we speak. One working with dead meters and one doa. Maybe these guys can help you resurrect the doa one and find meters for the other one. That'll give you some trading fodder, you'll need it.

I also have a doa CT 29 preamp that is doa, it's yours if you feel like trying to fix it.


Good to see yoy

Gary, yes he does. Ed used to work with his brother fixing vintage mopar autos. I found out they could work on Packards, so I introduced myself as an orphan car owner and I was looking to be adopted.

They rebuilt the engine on my 55 Packard a dozen years ago

I just got my convertible back from his brother. They drove it down Wednesday.

Thanks for all the welcomes. And thanks Robin for an awesome tour of his place and a day in heaven for me, viewing and hearing such beautiful equipment!

Thanks for the amps,they really made my speakers come to life.

I'm in Winchester, Va. about 90-100 miles from Robin.

BTW, if you like Glenn Miller as I do....try the 1983 Glenn Miller, "In the Digital Mood" recording. It was one of the first ever audiophile cd's made. I have and prefer the vinyl version.

It features the then Glenn Miller orchestra featuring the original arrangments.

Nice quality sound.
