Ok, I wired the output transformer as 1:2 and really took my time calibrating the unit and here it is! Sounds absolutely incredible!  8)
Thanks again, Fripholm for the great project and your help!!

As mentioned in the first post just drop me an email. There's also a link to the guide including BOM, optional front panel design etc. - see first post ;)

And, as this question has come up frequently within the last weeks: The boards (limiter and PSU) are available!

andow do you mind posting some demos? preferably drums and 2bus  :P

For the time being you could also check out the audio examples from this and this post.

Thanks for the heads-up.. these two examples sound amazing!
I wonder if your PCB's is anywhere different than what Tat Prusha (DIY-Racked)  offers.. he's also got a Zener Limiter in his portfolio.. I guess I better go with your PCBs tho

Since there were so many requests for audio demos I just ran some drums (from Addictive Drums) through my Zener Limiter.

You can hear 4 bars through the limiter and then 4 bars the original signal. I just messed around till it sounded good, so I don't recall the settings. But these are rather extreme settings, so you can really hear it working....
