    Hi,
    Has anyone used one of these Tektronix T922 scopes? I have a local guy selling one, but he wants about $200. Seems overpriced to me according to what I see online.

    If a Tektronix T922 isn't a great scope, could someone recommend a good scope for me?

    I haven't owned one before, but I am not afraid of a complex scope. I just want something I can rely on and something that I can use to troubleshoot my Marshalls if I ever have problems. I guess it could be used for biasing, so I will use it then as well.

    Any advice?

    Thanks,
    J

    The T922 is an ancient 15MHz dual-trace scope from the 70's.
    The T922R is the preferred rack-mount version.
    Definitely other better models in the $200 range available.

    You can get a 465 or other better one in the 200-300 price range.
    I like 465 because it's better for tracing High Frequency noise and other odd problems...

    You can have a laugh because this scope originally cost $12,500 (or more) and now you can get a working one for almost nothing.
    This is a good scope, dude.

    Another is Goldstar which is just good enough for audio, and goes in the 50- $100 range. But it's not like a 150 Mhz scope...

    But this type scope is good for somebody who is starting out learning how to use a scope.

    I have 4 scopes, 2X 465s, 1 goldstar and a four trace tek also.
    But for doing Watts measurement and bias, the goldstar is just fine, I use it a lot.
