2 pics of the progress of my Turbo (liquid cooled tubes, gold trannies and more, way better then the D-AOC ) D-OAC beast!
Still waiting for the mains trafo, optics, potmeters and the solen but it allready looking like a real one.
Frontpanel is done with lasertran (first time) and i'm quite happy with the result tough i made a scratch (dammit) on the panel.
[quote author="[silent:arts]"]for the Meter:
the circuit is taken from the LA2A
(which uses a VU Meter)
btw, there is a 3K9 resistor needed in series with the VU which is not on the PCB
(since I wanted to have a switchable "Gain Reduction" / Output VU)
some comments from Keith:
and how to calibrate it:
(R25 = R126 & R226 in the D-AOC)[/quote]
what about the jlm vu buffer?
"It turns cheap dc type VU meters into working VU meters."
Hey guys I just wanted to let you know I had my Power transformer built by
Heyboer Transformers, they also built my 10K:600 output transformers too.
The prices aren't as good as Edcor but the quality is pretty damn amazing and the output transformers is awesome.
65.00 for the power.
85.00 for the output.
They are a really cool "mom and pop" shop, nice people and easy to do business with. Its easy, you email them with your request, they email you a price, you approve. They will snail-mail you an invoice and you can pay via paypal (+3%) or send a check. turnaround time is about 1 to 2 weeks.
added a link to the first post for all the US/north americans since there are still questions where to buy what.
