Fairchild 670 compressor serial number 10. (!!!) Normally, the faceplates are pretty faded, but this one is pristine. Possibly a different finish used early on.
Wow. This was at the notorious Vintage King Audio. The uninitiated may be shocked to learn that this multi-decade old compressor is worth at least $30,000 and probably more because of the non-faded faceplate. Wow, indeed.
I worked on an audio / video installation at Mr. Fairchild’s apartment in Manhattan with a systems installation contractor I once worked for.
