Advise needed - thinning the herd

Chris Wilkson

I've been thinking about getting a *new* scope. Actually brand new. I've never done that. Maybe an Agilent 2000/3000 series. (Yeah, Keysight....I've been thinking a while now.) I have entirely too many scopes. Mostly Tek 7000 series. About 25 of them! And I'm tired of carrying and storing them.

But I do want to keep some analog scopes around. Maybe one or two 7000 mainframes and a good set of plugins.

The question is which two Tek 7k scopes should I have on hand? I'm not worried about plug ins right now...that's a future project. Just the mainframes for now. I require X-Y mode capability, but other than that it's wide open.

What would you recommend and why?
