I was recently given a very interesting tour by Martin King of Eve Recording Studios near Manchester.  It has a full range of facilities including mastering which have been used by a number of successful recording artists, but the special feature is that considerable use is made of vintage BBC equipment.  As such it is also a museum, but it is a museum where everything is restored to use.  Most of the BBC equipment dates from the 1940s through to the 1970s: microphones, amplifiers, limiters, attenuators, acoustic absorbers, mixers etc.  As such I think it would be of interest to a number of bbceng visitors.
