buildafriend said:Thanks a lot for the insight mike. It seems like a really beefy product. I wish I knew what 990's sounded like as I have only noted the sound of 2520's. When is the release? How much are the kits?
buildafriend said:It seems like a really cool product. I have decided to build a few 1290s but count me in for a Lola kit when you do the release. I want to take one for a test drive! Do you mind sharing the name of the company that makes your 500 series chassis?
mitsos said:Hi Mike,
will you include any of the "standard" transformer footprints (EA2622, not that I'd use a high ratio, but it's a more commonly available trafo footprint, for those who may not want a "neve" type). I know you may want to sell your own trafos with the kit, but anyway, I was wondering. I like the 990s myself, more than 2520s, but never thought of them as being clean, just real and ballzy. real ballzy. anyway, in a fully differential circuit is each opamp running at half the gain? For example, in an M1, the 990 runs at 54+ dB, in the twin servo, each 990 does 27+ dB, so ends up cleaner. From what it seems, each opamp amplifies half the signal, am I interpreting this correctly?
anyway, nice job creating something new, should be pretty cool to test out!
