In Reply to: RE: "Magic Eye Tube Vu Meters": Do such devices exist or be made? posted by kostas on July 11, 2020 at 00:00:09
Not quite Vu meters, but "magic eyes" were used as level indicators on tape recording devices.
Especially when it would be added to a component for nothing but visual effect. Hell, I don't even like bright LEDs. I've been known to snip an anode or two (if I'm feeling lazy) or add a resistor to dim them.
I like my listening room the way I like my coffee and my humor. Dark.
Don't you mean tuners? I loved my Fisher 400 and never should have sold it
Receiving equipment is (IMO) self evident, but even in stereo times, indicator tubes were used in tape equipment. I had a Webcor stereo machine so configured.
I have a Heathkit tape recorder I built in 1964 that uses two Magic eye vu meters.
