Beastly Old Receivers

Postby TazManiac » Mon Jun 05, 2017 7:24 pm

I'd come across a Quadraflex '666' some time past; it's a set that I was using to spin off of Audio/Video capture and conversion...

Cassettes and VHS to Digital, etc.

I just tickles me that they had the guff to name it w/ 'the Number of the Beast'...

Pix to follow.

Well, they didn't... not really.

It's named for a medieval German torture device (which should tell you something about the user-friendliness of its human interface). The original victims were hung upside down by their heels above the churning gears and heated metal, and tended to scream "Nein! Nein! Nein!"
