hi andy,
i believe you are only offering mirrored pairs correct?
i'm only building one channel (because i'm poor ;D) and was wondering if you would be offering the non-mirrored singles as well.

your comments of better ballistics and response on this meter makes me want one of yours rather than going with the retro 20.

cheers!

Hey Guy's singles are not a problem also, please email me if you've not, and I'll put you on the mass mail out.

Made a quick video, the Retro Vu is on the left hand side, the Retro TG on the right,,both limiters are set the same and sound equal+ stereo link is in, you'll quickly understand! why the retro VU sucks!

The Vu has a cardboard scale, and the needle painted white.. but all similarities end at that point. :-)

Ha!
What a difference.
Now I know why "devil" and "ballistic" shares the same root.  :)

P.S. _really_ nice panel too.

Is that the AL20SQ on the left?

Are you sure it's not broken? In my experience those Retro meters are faster than regular VU's, if anything (and the Sifam site would seem to suggest so, too).

The VU works great as a VU meter with a 3k6 on the plus being fed audio from the converter. As my good pal- Pete/Sinestaraudio pointed out this morning via email, the values in circuit around the meter would need to change to get it to work better.

Personally I'm used to the Chandler TG1 unit, and it's fast metering :-)

Hi, like all GB's.. took a little longer to collect final payments from the tail enders, before I could place the final order with Sifam.

it's a 7-8 week turnaround for them, with Xmas break also to consider.

Order Date on the invoice was 16/11/09, the Due Date is stated as 15/01/10

It's a bit of a wait, but it'll be worth it. :)

Hey Andy, since my 'confirmation-mail' didn't come trough I'd like to know whether I'm still on the list for 2 pairs?
The uncertainty is driving me crazy!  ;D
