    Big lump of magic and sorcery.

    Yours for £550.

    No postage as its bloomin’ heavy - taxi or meet up required.

    Hi
    Does this have any history of being calibrated?

    It was calibrated when I first had it but that was a few years back now and tbh I'll be buggered if I can find any documents etc. I'd recommend that the buyer calibrates it before use.

    Oh - that's a splendid piece of kit. We had one where I worked. Big beautiful and British.

    Anyone who designs, or is a serious user of valve gear should buy it.

    I've just seen my two panal AVO as my wife was going through the cupboards.

    I should test my triodes. For no reason but why not? It does B7 and UX4 sockets.

    This machine is in another league to my AVO, though.

    Generally at that price they would have some sort of statement that they are fully working, and proof of recent calibration.

    That's not to infer that this one isn't 100% operational

    I’m presuming this is fully operational... calibration can always be arranged by a specialist. Assuming it is fully working and only needs calibrated, £750 plus is still the standard online...
