When I was a kid I use to get their catalogs and now I could get the kits they go out of business. Its a shame because I bet if they could have survived or changed they could start selling kits again. I have to wonder if most businesses this big close due to management not changing with the times. Its a shame because I thought they had really good stuff, or thats just me.

No, it's not "just you." In its heyday Heathkit sold high quality, eminently affordable test and consumer audio/video equipment, much of which, I bet, is still in existence and still being used--like my IT-12 signal tracer and IP-18 regulated power supply.

In 1956 I traveled to Benton Harbor, MI, and picked up a Heathkit my father had ordered. I forget the model number but it was a big multispeaker cabinet (birch), designed for use in the early days of mono high fidelity. He and I assembled it and it worked the first time we tried it. Dad finished the cabinet with another then-new product, Deft brushable lacquer. Later (about 1961) he used the speaker system and another Heath speaker unit he himself assembled with his proudly acquired Fisher stereo tuner.
