Something fun for Wednesday--recent find at the Savers, which had an otherwise lackluster Lp selection. Well, they're not likely to all be good, or they would have been sold long ago! :lol: What made me buy this, outside of basically always nabbing anything that states Living Stereo, Living Presence, Ultra Audio, Doctored for Super Stereo, Phase-X etc. was that the cover shot is actually Chet Atkins' recording studio, with a fairly recognizable 1/2" Ampex studio machine & electronics, PLUS a bunch of gear that looks familiar.

Time to play "Guess the Test Instruments." I'll start with the iconic EICO oscilloscope, fairly out of focus but from here it looks like a model 400. Hickok signal generator, anyone?

The Hickock with the big scale looks like one of their Multi-Meters. I have one, but I forget the model number, maybe a 209.

John, I am pretty sure that the multimeter is a Hickock 209A as you suspect.

I'm sure the crowd-sourced knowledge bank will get all the gear identified eventually... what I want to know, though, is what is the significance of "ELECTRIFYING" above the RCA logo at the right?

I've seen that brand of black plastic, square-cornered VOM before, but I'm drawing a blank on the brand...however, there is a Weller soldering gun laying at the ready on top of the mixer panel...maybe a big 9400PKS?

The (multi)meter on the top of the console is a HEATHKIT MM-1 VOM
