This was on the first M-series desk; IMHO, the last of the great analogue desks.
I rather liked the polystyrene dielectric, while the parts weren't very compatible with modern manufacturing processes. Was your preference for NPO/COG related to size and value accuracy, or something else? JR
only thing missing is the "hand carved by virgins from Unobtainium" label.
