New toy

I just got in a Tektronix SG5010 GPIB Signal Generator -- it measures 0.00034% THD at 1kHz, 2.0 V when operating in balanced mode into my AP analyzer (using 80kHz BW).

The AP itself measures about the same.

willing to sell it? I've searching for six months for one of those. Paired with an AA5001, it makes a killer test setup. Pop a GPIB cable on the back of the TM5006 mainframe they both sit in, and attach the other end to a National Instrument 488.2-PCI card in your computer, and WOW.. fully automated 3D distortion plots level/freq/THD are possible ;)
