    Hello Jon,
    Trying to find information on a ’50s binary amplifier.
    Was this model actually marketed in quantity ?
    My first listening to ‘BINARY Sound’ was in El Paso
    in early ’50s. It was possibly the Brainard unit as a
    prototype. Tuner was T 200.
    Memory is vague at this date.
    The demonstration was focused on direct listening
    via headphones with pickup mikes separated approx.
    same as our ears. Thereby, eliminating any room acoustics
    distortions. Thus, listener now appears to be in front of
    actual orchestra instead of hearing the performance
    thru mikes in different positions. Realism !
    The designation A 200 and T 200 would indicate
    earlier models as A 100 etc. existed.
    Thanx, for any help you may offer. Paul B.
