honestly speaking, you should PM gunbir....he is Dr. SQ and would definitely be in a position to let you know the source.

Alternatively, if its available in the local mkt, LBM would be the right guy.

I have this beautiful unit. It was a limited production product because of limited number of GE tubes available. It is not available anymore.

Suren, I like the way you think... "I need to have it"... You may find one if you look very hard, though NOT in India.

Looks fantastic, but unfortunately not just for us. This one screams "Steal me"!

I have seen two of these HU's. One is installed in my friends Cedia and the other I guess I had seen with JB when he was in Bangalore. Pics don't do justice to the way it looks.
