I owned a Delta 590 for awhile. It had a brownish/black colored cabinet,
different from the typical Ten-Tec black.
It was about the same height as the Argosy, but wider and deeper. The Omni
C was much bigger in size.
I like the 580. It has the typically good Ten-Tec audio and QSK keying.
In my opinion, it's biggest fault was the digital readout. I can't remember
the exact technical situation, but it never reads right on the hundred cycle
digit. Something to do with how it's time based.
