Hello Guys

Please let me know if any of you has the above schematic by any chance. Its not coming up anywhere on the web. The PT6-V was part of their "Voyager" line together with the usual PT6 tape transport... i see all of the other Magnecord amplifiers everywhere but not this one. This has 6x4 rectifiers instead of 5y7 and 12au7/12ax7's. I would be really grateful if you could help me out here. Attached a related article, but no schema sadly... Thank you !

I don't know who drew this to give them credit, but here is a version someone traced in 2011.

No sign of a bias/erase oscillator in that schematic. Is there a page missing?

Cheers

hi Ian... i am no way an expert on this but I think the bias circuit is on the matching tape transport...Pt6 and so on... although I could be wrong...

Thank you so mush for this... exactly what needed. Really a big thanks !
You are right. More detailed reading of the brochure reveals the transport is equipped with a 12AU7 bias/erase oscillator. A good idea to put it close to where it is needed.

Cheers

I used one of these on a daily basis for 14 months while I was a Broadcast Specialist in the U.S. Army. Great machine for editing. Very rugged and sounded good for speech recordings of Home Town Interviews. Tubes checked on a regular basis and never had to replace any of them. FWIW.

They did do a good job, I have some schematics I need to draw up from pencil scribblings. What is the simplest method to do it on a computer? Not looking to spend money on a program but a free program would be good. I am pretty sure it will have been discussed many times already a lead or a point might be useful thanks...

You are quite welcome! As I said, not my drawing, but someone did a nice job (y)
Cheers... yes, its a very neat drawing. .... I hope you don't mind me taking the opportunity to ask but by any chance... would you have a Magnecord P75 tape transport schema too? I am trying to hook the PT6J and the P75 together... there are several years apart of these units but I am hoping that the base design will be the same. I only have the P65 schema but not the P75.... thanks again! :)
