Title: My first API 500 module ;-) (Passive Signal Splitter)
Post by: Holger on May 07, 2010, 02:08:30 PM
Fully API 500/51X compatible passive signal splitter based on a Sowter 4679 transformer.
Has XLR and Lemo outputs. Frontpanel is from Frank/NRGrecording.
I'm claiming here to be the first guy who has built an API module with a PSU current consumption of 0 mA :)

I think you are right. For this, you must get a prize!  ;D  Will for sure help to balance out some overly hungry modules.

Best, Jeff

I once stuck a fader into a blank lunchbox panel to use as an attenuator. That was probably 2 years ago. It was by no means as pretty as your splitter though.  ;D

Very impressive.  :)

Looking to your output on DIY project comes a question to my mind:

Don't you need any sleep ?  ;D

since you are in the UK, Cemal (Sahib) stocks them too ;)

nice work Holger, but I have to re-check the power specs ...
0mA will work in the GroupDIY 51X Rack, but I have heard there are PSU problems in some other Alliance products ;D
