Whites Spectrum XLT

Post by Beetlejuice » Sun Jan 29, 2017 9:45 pm

I have the chance to purchase a Whites Spectrum XLT 1998 module for £175.

From what I've read they can compete with some of the better makes today only not on recovery speed.

Would you advise on purchase?

Make sure the screen is ok and that you have access to a manual. It is still comparable to many of todays machines.

yes its dated but it's still a very good machine, my brother swears by his. The price is not too bad as long it works okay.

Thanks for advise. Don't really need to find to much to pay for itself. Bought it and done some air test on a programme I've set via an Internet search. To be honest really impressed. Thanks again

I've got the same machine and I find it fantastic, not let me down yet unless I count the time I went out and left the battery in charge at home.

Had mine for nearly twenty years and its a great machine, although not tried any of the more modern machines but leagues better then my old C-Scope which was more of a toy tbh!

Best mod to date is changing the dry cells for something a bit more modern with the net result of extended running time, 4 hrs plus!
