Interesting, I couldn't get over the "Soundesign" name on it, It is funny that a cheap stereo company would make a seemingly reputable calculator.

I think they had someone make it for them, perhaps someone who made their own brand of calculators and just relabeled it.

who would ever think there would be a web site for nerds. I am so glad I found this place, it's nice to know I am not all a lone. between the turntables, reel to reels, cassette decks & old 35mm film cameras, I must be close to being the King of the nerds.

Back in the early 1970s my friends and I heard an older chap listening to classical records and thought he was a real nerd.

Now many years later I am sitting here listening to classical music on the radio while having a cup of coffee. It`s all a matter of perspective! :mrgreen:

Absolutely! I haven't been in the 35mm collecting business too long, but I have enjoyed it so far!

I don't have any reel to reel stuff. :cry:

Wow, Team Associated, I have some of that myself. I have the RC10GT from the early 90's. That's about where it stops for me though. :o

Welcome to our little corner. As you've probably already figured out you are not alone. =D>

What do you like about Twin Peaks?

You might find some of this thread interesting too.:

Hi, noob here-
I have a strange obsession with collecting clocks. Have about 30 in my bedroom alone. Also like biking, walking, and buying old stuff.
