    Does anybody know anything about this tuner? There’s a guy in my area with one for sale on CL and from the description this tuner is rare and very high-end. I’ve heard of Heathkit but not this particular tuner

    I wrote up a blurb about the design of the Heathkit AJ-1510A and unlike most Heathkit products, there are a number of design errors. There is a zipped file which is the attachment in the

    http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/analogue-source/195272-heathkit-aj-1510-tuner-help.html

    thread but since I can't find a way to attach a file in this forum, it is best to go there and unzip the file. When you buy this tuner, BE SURE TO GET THE MANUAL. I cannot emphasize that enough. Even though the schematic is on the net, the board layout diagrams are a must. And $550 is insane. I got mine for CDN$150 which happens to be a good price - they normally go for $150 in US dollars.

    Yeah, I passed on it because I thought he was insane as well. It did spark my interest in this tuner, mainly because it’s different. Thank for the info and advice.

    -It's still for sale and the price is still "insane"!
