I have this transformer, and it doesn't say what pins 2 and 3 do or go.

I can't answer your question strictly, but can you try an alternative, like UPS?
I would if I could but at present the Lion Circuits in India only offers DHL but I will ask them for an alternative.

Cheers

You may not remember the times of the restricted community (E5/6). When you wanted to ship products to a non-EEC country, you needed a whole bunch of papers, carnets and all paraphernalia. It took a real hardened pro to manage that activity.
Oh, but I do. I joined Neve in 1974 and they shipped consoles everywhere in the world. I heard many stories of import adventures. Even in the 80s when I was working on telephony products you still had to contend with the requirements of each telecom institution as well as the variations in safety and interference among countries within and outwith the EEC. Fortunately harmonisation has helped a lot with that especially where the USA participates.

Filters/Equalizers / Re: EQP1A Standard Test Procedure
« Last post by dbonin on January 21, 2021, 11:03:37 AM »
I guess I'm just looking for a logical approach to testing my latest build, which is an EQP1A. 
My first pass is not to validate the wide range of EQ settings, but to check some baseline performance metrics.

Something like this?

Input  a .775 volt, 1khz sine wave (preferably @600ohms)

Measure the output under the following conditions:

  • Bypassed : output should be in the range of <value> volts with 1khz sine on output
  • With <knobs> in <some> position output should be <volts>

I suspect a lot of it is businesses not being properly prepared. I can understand their reluctance when right up to the wire it looked like no deal was the most likely outcome. But radio advertising here was saturated for the 6 months before with government ads urging companies to prepare for it - there was oodles of help on the .gov web sites so they cannot say they did not know what they had to do. Much of it would apply deal or no deal.

This knowledge has largely disappeared in most companies.
I would bet customs have done next to nothing to make sure companies were ready.
Customs are a state in the state and spend too much time lpractising levitatation to care about practicalities.

Brewery / DHL shipping costs
« Last post by ruffrecords on January 21, 2021, 10:29:13 AM »
As you may know, in prtest at China's human rights record, I have started sourcing bare PCBs from India. They are more expensive than their Chinese counterparts and the shipping cost is a little higher but the qulity of the PCBs is much better. before I changed from China to India, DHL  had begun insisting the supplier declared the full cost of the PCBs on the custom declarations and then proceeded to charge import tax (VAT) on the imported boards plus a charge for collecting the VAT, all because the value exceeded the threshold below which duty is . I can live with that because it affects anyone who uses DHL for shipping.

However, I recently went to order 20 of the pocket oscillator boards I have designed. The quote I got from India was $19 for the PCBs but the DHL shipping charge was $47!!! I queried this and the answer was that is what DHL says it is I I checked my usual China source. From them the PCBs were $10 and the DHL shipping a mere $17 - pretty much as expected (the boards are only 50mm square).

So I queried it again with the Indian supplier pointing out that the DHL charge for the same PCBs is only $17 from China. All they would say is that is the price DHL gave them.

So, my question is, has anyone else seen any evidence of large price hikes by DHL?

« Last post by Jitter on January 21, 2021, 10:27:03 AM »
I am selling my highly appreciated SafeSound Audio VCA compressor, with the plus of the Lundahl transformer output option installed.
The compressor is a super versatile beast with different modes of operation, parallel compression, dedicated limiter, etc.
It is in perfect condition and it is very rare to find today since the guy who made them closed the firm.

Price 1750€ + 45€ shipping costs.
