    Hey, friends- picked up a Model 24 pre/tuner, which was installed in an Ampex Crescendo tube console. Typically I am only interested in the tubes, but from what I can see this is a pretty unusual little thing. I will post pics later, but wanted to get opinions on it- my current preamp situation is Fisher tube 100, or the Ampex pre and tuner, either licensed or made by fisher.

    TIA.

    I have restored several 24's.
    They certainly are a rare breed.
    They are the older pre 22xx style (that we all know so well.)
    Nothing special about their circuitry although some claim that the phono section is sonically superior.
