Hi all!
I'm in a process of gathering all the part for this project an I need some help.

1) Is this power trafo good? http://www.banzaimusic.com/Talema-TRT30215.html

ok :-)

2) Which BC184C transistors need to be matched with each other, it's hidden in the BOM? 

best is, match all as close as possible.

3) I'm also curious about those ??? resistors (R23 - R28) used for attack?

R23 - 1K2 (0.5ms)
R24 - 1K3 (1ms)
R25 -  1K8(5ms)
R26 - 2K (12ms)
R27 - 2K2(25ms)
R28 - 2K7 (50ms)


Greets, Bernd

Thanks Bernd - much appreciated. Out of curiosity, can I ask where you got / how you calculated the attack resistor values? I spent a good few hours trawling for that info and couldn't find anything, so I'm keen to learn!

Hi Andy, I got the values directly from Igor, who created the kit ;-)

...Yep, that would make sense I guess!  ;D Thanks again for sharing - time to start ordering parts...

Hello folks! I'm here.
Wedding and the birth of a daughter turned me out of diy life . Now my brain has barely got rid of sleepless nights and changing diapers so I have some helpful info regards DB54 assembling.
As I heard there are several assembled DB54. It will be nice to hear  reviews from you guys.
Now we are order third batches of boards kits.

Well, in next few replays I will post some and answer on questions.

So long awaited - DB54 assemble manual!)

I've updated BOM a little bit, so BOM v1.1 is now valid.

Check both in DB54 google disk folder:

Here was a couple questions regards BA191 diodes direction.
I've created a small file with investigating that question.

Answers on previews questions:


I'm probably missing something really obvious, but I'm not clear on the values of the 'attack time' resistors (R23-28 on PCB1). The BOM lists them as "?? See manual" - which manual do you mean? I can't find anything in your Google Drive folder setting that out, and haven't been able to find anything either elsewhere on GDIY or on Google. What values should we be using? Like I say, I feel I must be missing something obvious here...

check assemble guide page 14

The PCB`s are soldert (they are very nice) & the PSU is working..... :D
Now i need some info`s about how to hook up the transformers and later on how to calibrate the compressor...
rolf
check assemble guide page 17 and 18

Can you tell me the part number of the BA card connectors ?
Andreas
check assemble guide page 5

No schematic for this project?  Or is it an exact clone?  ? ???
thats not an exact clone

1) Is this power trafo good? http://www.banzaimusic.com/Talema-TRT30215.html
2) Which BC184C transistors need to be matched with each other, it's hidden in the BOM?
3) I'm also curious about those ??? resistors (R23 - R28) used for attack?

1) good
2) TR1 and TR2 on BA185 should be matches pair (hfe matched)
3) check assemble guide page 14

There's a small typo in the assemble guide:
In the input transformers choice, on page 6, 10468 types it has to be Sowter 9145. You wrote 9045 (but that's the Carnhill number)

I ordered my mouser cart today :)
