You mean 8008 BC? wink.gif

That must be the technical term for it. hysterical.gif
(Does BC stand for before computers?)
We always just called it the 8008 or the Intel 8008.

That was the best sounding stereo receiver I have ever heard (from any manufacturer in any price range) bar none.
It was originally manufactured in the early 60's.
I rewired it with silver coated wires I bought from the NASA surplus store and replaced the tubes with some I had seen in a brand new $10000 stereo amp (Sensuous Sounds or some other specialtyshop). I built a custom oak enclosure for it. Then I built a pair of high output speakers with matching oak finish. The set up was bulky and heavy, but the sweetest sound. If only I hadn't gotten tired of moving it when I was nomadic.

Very nice and tidy indeed ... did you clean it up for the picture or does it look that way all the time?

You know what they say about a clean desk...

No. It looks like that all the time. It's an anal thing. I have a plaque somewhere that has that quote, Fran:

"A clean desk is a sign of a sick mind." ~Albert Einstein

Friends at a place I used to work chipped in and bought it for me.

I'm a neat person, but not a very good housecleaner. While things always look neat and arranged wherever I live, the odds are good that there is 3" of cat hair and a whole herd of dust T-rexes under the beds and behind the dressers. ;)
