People are often surprised that I’m completely unemotional about old gear, but I think this is an exception; it does give me great satisfaction to know that there are a number of ‘bricks’ still in service, and being used in preference to a load of more ‘glamorous’ gear.
At the time I designed it, the brick was just a collection of circuits from a number of broadcast projects, but tweeked for overload margin, and using a nice chunky input transformer. The result, it appears, is a classic……. and I don’t have one for myself! But I do have the P110, and my son Guy, who uses both a brick and a P110 and says that they are very similar.
