Hi Guys, The micro series was developed by Michael 'Doc' Morgan at Valley, which was a fully comprehensive line of modules. A bit of history... The lineage stated with Paul C Buff who with his then wife Allison moved to Nashville and merged with a small company called Valley Audio in 1981, in 1983-8...

I have built a fair few for my clients in various configurations, though the JLM 1:4 input transformer and Class 99V opamp seems to be real winners. http://www.ashtonaudio.com/images/products/ba2/front_panel_sm.jpg http://www.ashtonaudio.com/images/products/ba2/insides_sm.jpg My racks are in studios...

Hey Drew, You mentioned that previously you traded a pair of the 312's for a pair of the Avenson's and are willing to let the 312's go for that. The Avensons are $550 a pair, so would the pair of 312's be $550? Sorry if it seems obvious, I just wanted to clear it up. They look beautiful by the way, ...

Looking for Yamaha REV5 Service Manual/Schematic

Hi Guys, Does anyone have the Service Manual and/or Schematic for the Yamaha Rev5? I have the manual but it only has a block diagram of the circuit, needing something a bit more detailed, having an issue with one of the outputs being a few dB's softer than the other. If you have a copy and wouldn't ...

Um.. Sorry if I'm stating the obvious here but just remember that a IC in a socket can fit both ways, but only one is right way, fitting it the WRONG way round will either blow it is up, short it out, and could damage other parts along with it. I understand you want to try it, but maybe a bit of kno...

Stupid OT question: can the email addresses in your profile be picked up by spam bots? After using google groups, my website became a spam magnet. I'm not sure, my guess would be yes, knowing what bots can do these days.... What meant about updating your profile was merely with your 'location', not...

The answer is no, not unless you can build a ADC from the ground up ;-) There are a couple inexpensive boxes that can do this for you, the best value for money One is the SM PRO A08 ( http://www.smproaudio.com/A08.htm ), $150, and it will convert 8 analog inputs to an ADAT out, for use with your Dig...

I think at under $100 a channel you shouldn't expect miracles. I would expect it to sound better than any IC based design under a retail price of say $500, if not more. Sure, they will not fit the bill for everything. But for a clean, quite pre-amp with loads of gain, it is awesome. Plus it is a fu...

Well they were no ISA or Red series, but then the topology is different since both the ISA and RED are transformer coupled, the Green series were IC based/balanced... much like the AMEK / Pure Path, which I would put in a similar battle class.. The Focusrite Greens are, at their time of release VERY...
