Insight into Recapping Amek Mozart Rn-15 modules
« on: July 01, 2012, 12:46:10 PM »
Hello,

I've come across a large number of RN-15 mozart modules, and was hoping to find someone with some insight into getting these things back up to proper working order.  I know they are notorious for cooking components.   

Anyone repaired these before?

Thanks in advance,

Jeremy

Yep, it's easy. Just replace all the electrolytics and you're good. They sound great.

I maintained one for over a decade.  The only things that would cook were the obsolete mic pre chips, which I think are made by THAT again, and the barely adequate PSU.
If you are racking them then just deal with decoupling and signal path electrolytics.  Do the EQ last and don't bother with the AUX section.  Some rackers cut the group routing and AUX sections off to fit a 19" rack case.

Don't recap them... Sell them to me and Fran├žois !!!
Seriously, be really gentle on the heater temperature if you don't want to damage the PCB ...
Be patient, more than patient...
And sell a few of them to me !

You're talking about MZ11 or MZ12 ... MZ15 are really different beasts designed by Mr NEVE
