I have one of their white noise "surf synthesizers" that I found in a
Goodwill store a few years ago. Lots of different settings. Nice to have when

I had a similar one from Southwest Technical decades ago. Made good use
of it during graduate school to get a good night's sleep. I have no idea what
happened to it.
