But doesn't the ba283 between the fader and the pan pot make up for that?

Yes, I just mentioned it so you could see how it could still be done passively if you wanted to.

Indeed I see! Thanks Ian! Going passive was my first intention, but as things went on, I figured it would be great to add a little spice in here! A bit more of a challenge for me, and hopefully I'll learn a bit more in the process!

I should get the BA283 cards any day now, and I just ordered the parts for them from Mouser. I also ordered a bunch of NOS Motorola 3055s. Those may not make a difference, but well.. at least the markings look cooler  8) I have yet to decide whether I'll be using BC184Cs or a substitute.. I had a nightmare episode with MSPA18s in my 6x1290 build a couple of years back... Things went back to normal when I swapped them for 184s... (yes, the MSPAs where reversed)... that puzzle is yet to be sold...

I still need to figure out what is going to happen between the input transformers and the BA283 cards.. There is so much to learn..

Ok here's a little update!
I'm almost done with the BA283 cards, thanks to Avdo for the PCB's and API for the support and heatsinks!


I'm still missing the 4K7/5K trimmer, actually I'm having a hard time finding one that fits the board. I'm open to suggestions on this  ;)

Today, I started work on the buss bars (Stereo out, 2 cues and PFL).  Next step is ordering the feed thru insulating terminals!

Looks great !
Je mets les pieds où je veux, et c'est souvent dans la gueule...

Today, I finished the bussbars! Quite fun to build!





I also drew up the routing panel layout, based off the 1883, but with only two busses and two cue sends:

Hi guys, quick update as I just started working on the frames that will hold the BA283 cards with their inductor load:


I also got my 1520 faders from Dan Alexander. I had to clean them inside out and they're all smooth now, but I must say I'm a bit disappointed by the top plates, as they're not all matched. Some are glossy, some are matte, some even look purple-ish. Maybe I'll manufacture some new ones, we'll see!
