Has anybody tried to use the link option for stereo linking? Nothing suspicious happened?

Has anyone used or does anyone know if there would be any major issue of running a 1:2.8 tranny instead of the 1:1? Or reversing and stepping down? I found some LL1521's for a good price and I'd rather use them if I can. I know 1540's will work, but they're harder to find and more expensive. I'd much rather have Lundahls on the inputs. I was going to etch out an adapter board to go from the CLMI to the LL1521. Not a fan of wiring in PCB mounted trannys.

Thanks folks!

You can use this transformer, although I wouldn't recommend doing so. It will shift your threshold level (which may be not a huge problem if you're using 555 oscillator- it shifts the threshold as well). If you connect it in step-up, you may easily overload the circuit (especially if you're running it from 16V). In step-down it attenuates the signal too much, so you'll have to drive the input much harder.
You can modify the circuit and adjust the threshold level, but this is not obvious and requires some experimentation.

How difficult would it be to change the attack time for a PYE.

I know it has 0.5ms and 1ms, if i could get a 10ms or longer attack time, this unit would get a lot more use!

There were a million records made that people loved that used the given settings...all of a sudden it doesn't work anymore? Use a different unit for the task at hand!

A longer attack time would let drum transients pass and would probably sound amazing. Nothing wrong with how it is now, I was just wondering if i could make a capacitor somewhere switchable to change the attack time from stock to a bit longer

According to the service manual you may have luck adjusting R59 (refer to schematic here: https://groupdiy.com/index.php?topic=43351.msg727799#msg727799). Increasing it should increase attack time. Please report back what you find.
