there are 2 different options sent with the kit, though the second doesn't fit the frontplate. Just use the "full" pcb with the switches. See the attched GIF.

Does anyone know of a source for the correct meter's for this build? If possible I would love to get retro looking ones similar to some of those on the hairball site...

Probably more accurate to say I am sniffing around the build than that I have started it... I am finding the documentation quite confusing to interpret as there seems to be several different versions with different options, and I am not clear on the differences. Nonetheless, I think they will be great compressors if they capture the flavor of the original design, and if I can get them built. Collecting the components not included in the kit is my first step...

Please let us know what and where you find the parts not in the kit.
I have a stereo kit still in the box that I haven't had time to get into.

As I understand it, the only parts missing from the kit are:

- ELMA switches 2x per kit
- Meter 1x per kit
- transformer 1x per kit
- knobs 6x per kit

I'm based in London. So far I have picked up the Elma switches and the transformers:

4x Elma switches - from hifi collective (Elmas: 1 pole/24 way selector switch, 04-1133 (ELMA1/24)) These were quite pricey at £39 per, and might be able to be found elsewhere cheaper.
4x Lundahl 1524 transformers from group diy black market from ricothetroll @ 35€ per(plus postage). These seem to have been discontinued from production, so I needed to find some secondhand. Bought the two extra for my 1176 kits from Igor.

Knobs and meters are still unpurchased. Any good sources for knobs and meter would be much appreciated!

If I have missed any components not included, please let me know.

Dgoszillai,
Are you looking to buy a kit?
I thought you had an unbuilt stereo kit. Did you sell it?

Some one really out to do a TG in 500 series and slap a voltage converter on it and properly support the unit. This is crazy that so many people are just sitting here staring at the PCBs lol
Some things are best left unsaid

So, what happened here?    Did this become a kit that igor made, and everyone bought and he disappeared?

I am still committed to getting this pair of compressors built. The complexity and variety of options, and lack of clear instructions (granted this is DIY!) mean that it may take me some time to prepare myself. I also need to source a few parts yet, but it will happen, hopefully within the next 6 months or so.

honnestly after a year.. i really don't understand how igor couldn't find a single day to collect more data / pictures / updates to help us here. yeah i know he's health was bad so find someone to do it ? at least a guy who can take pictures of he's 12413 unit HD and in detail. the folder he gave us is missing some steps (and reading the .txt is really not clear) or maybe he could send a functional unit to someone he trusts on the forum so we can study it closely and send it back. is that impossible ? but did he ever built one unit ? is this thing even working ?  ;D

Well, you don't get many second chances like this, but if you're still interested, I've just listed my complete Stereo kit along with the Lundahl output transformers and meters!
