Huldra 8 service manual translation
Is anyone who speaks 'scandinavian' keen to help translating the Huldra 8 service manual into english?
I have started, but it is a lot.. This is probably the most wordy Tandberg manual. It is interesting though, because they describe the circuits in detail.
Clive, it is for you and your Huldra 8. What was your name here in the forum?
Maybe some nice volunteer could help me with a page or two?
There is a machine translation already, but it is messy, so we don't have to do it from scratch but we must go in read, think what it really means and correct it.
Have attached a onedrive link to my effort translating the Huldra 8 manual. Tried to attach a PDF copy to this posting but system does not seem accept that type of file.
just wanted to thank jvanselm and Jens for their help with the Huldra 8, i really enjoy listening to it radio mostly, i bought it off FINN but not directly because i am not a resident of Norway, the seller was was very helpful and shipped it including the matching speakers. i sometimes use HI FI Shark to check on Tandberg, it has usually a decent selection
@moke Great to hear!
The translation has paused at the moment, so difficult and a very wordy service manual.
For you English speaking Huldra 8 owners, how about if we translate the owners manual?
The speaker selector system is complicated, I hardly understand it myself although I own a Huldra 8. I just use the App speaker outputs and leave it at that.
I’ve started translating the Huldra 8 user manual. Will upload here when done.
I have completed the first draft. It’s out on the Tandberg Forum Facebook pages. Please look it up and comment there. I’ll upload here when revised.
The English translation is now uploaded to "User & Service manuals" -> "Hulda Series"
Moderator: please rectify the typo in "Hulda Series" to "Huldra Series"
Mr Tom, what a great job, makes more sense now and some features i wasn't aware off. I now have it playing at my office at the museum where i work replacing a newer Tandberg receiver i had there that needs some TLC.
@moke Thanks. It sure has a lot of features. The Huldra 8 with speakers cost more than an average monthly gross household income in 1967. I’m guessing that Tandberg’s policy was that if you invested in a Huldra, you should need no other device. You can therefore listen to a record in one room and listen to the radio in another room. Or listen to the radio while recording a record on the tape player. Or use the intercom as a baby call. It’s one of my absolute favorite Tandberg receivers.
