    Oh boy -- we're on a roll now! I think we're up to what, 5 now? (the one I was at auction doesn't count because it could be one of the 5.....) Westy -- you're being just plain hoggish! :)

    How high are the serial numbers on the known 100-Ts? Is it possible that the 202-T numbering started at 30000 and was simply the next block of numbers for the 100-T?

    Fred -- Of the service manuals I have:

    1. The Coronet has one manual serving 10001 to 29999, and another serving 30001 to 39999. I also have a 100-T manual serving 30001 to 39999. That's all I've been able to find.

    2. The Statesman has one manual serving 10001 to 19999, and another with no serial number designations on it, although it would by all appearances serve units from 30001 to 39999. I also have a 202-T manual serving 10001 to 19999, and another serving 30001 to 39999. That's all I've been able to find. Strange that neither the Statesman nor 202-T has a manual serving 20001 to 29999 -- unless one has just not shown up for posting.

    Since the serial numbers for both units overlap, it doesn't appear that the Statesman/202-T started where the Coronet/100-T left off.

    The one that I bought separate from the console has a serial number 10073 A.

    Mine is 31521D so that's quite a span. Mine is a stand alone unit and was not sold in a console, if that makes any difference in serial numbers.

    The 31137 D came with the console, so I doubt serial numbers had to do with the Statesman's designation.
    I had custom cabinets made for it and a Scott 335. They look beautiful.

    Mine falls in the middle of the bunch at 20388A so there was certainly a good run of these units. I agree that the serial number was almost certainly independent of whether it got a Statesman or 202-T face plate.

    I joined this club on Tuesday! My serial number is really close to Westy's. The unit was serviced a few years ago and the MPX was installed and aligned by guy in my area who is supposed to be really good with MPX tuners - has all the equipment etc. Came with a metal cabinet, so I think it was originally sold as a stand alone. All I need is another 80AZ or a stereo Fisher amplifier and I'm good to go.

    Don't worry too much about the brand of amplifier to match with it.
    The hk citII paired with it sounds better than the sa100 that came with it.

    Funny. but the sa100 sounds better to me paired with the hk citI.

    I have some other brand tube amps to use it with. I listened for a while with some Dynaco Mark III's today, very good sounding preamp with a lot of tone control range. I'm really happy with it!

    Congrats on your 202T Matt ! Looks like the 202-T list is growing.
