I do wonder how menditmark has made his money to buy (and justify buying) all that posh test equipment. Certainly not by fixing any of the stuff he's got on youtube. He certainly doesn't have the viewing figures for YT to finance the channel, he's hardly that beast fellow.

Yeah I was thinking that. Possible theory <g> .... apparently he lives in Cosford - which is a very RAF place. Maybe he trained/qualified in the RAF ... and because of that he gets work for them in some form ... MOD have sizeable budgets - even these days.

A quick search on linkedin shows his day job is technical manager at dutch company Eriks Power Transmissions in Kingswinford. Eriks used to sub-out repairs to me from their former electronics repair centre in Liverpool for some years.

I must admit on decent scoops with a good preamp the XLS 5000 has always been my budget guilty pleasureEmbarrassed
