Texar Audio Prisms

Post by HadYourPhil » Tue Jun 18, 2013 7:15 pm

This is a long shot, but does anyone have the covers for a pair of those? I can probably find correct screws... Seems like we take the covers off to tweak and never put 'em back on!

Those covers went where Optimod 8000 covers and your left sock are.

ChuckG has the proper setup lineup.

Amazing how many of those Texar (and probably Optimod 8000) covers just vanished over the years. The ones on mine were gone when I got 'em, sadly.

4-5-6: Beers for the engineer. And in this case he saunters over to the AMI Continental II with his clubfeet and then selects a few tunes and then begins drinking his beers. The thrills of enjoying great tunes on your transmitter site jukebox, priceless. Got to cajole the CEO into getting me a Pinball machine and a Barbeque Grill and a bar installed. Welcome to the Burk Pub.

two happy prisms
One of my stations has two Prisms and a 8000A. All have cover plates. The 8000A cover is missing a screw. When I started at that station, the covers were off, but piled on top of the rack. Surprised they didn't get pitched.

I never knew they were supposed to look like that. The only one I've encountered (at an AM station) had several LEDs stuck on all the time, usually indicating a buffer overflow, even with no audio.

Do everyone a favor: replace the hex-head screws with phillips-head screws. Less tools required.
