Thanks!

Does IC1 need to be fitted at all if using unbalanced out?
Yes, you need IC1 always either a DIP8 or DOA is needed for the GAIN to work.
Which 33R & 47pF are not needed if unbalanced out?
The ones closer to GAIN/POWER

Re: GAIN Mic Pre / Makeup Amp Kit

JLM Twenty Five Twenty can run on this PCB +/-24, correct? Yes Just Link C to E? Yes you can but if you want soft start and extra regulation just fit BD681 and turn trim pot up to full to get about 46v (+/-23v) I assume the 2520 note for the DOA 32v +/-16 rails for this PCB is just for Api-Original...

Re: VU2 stereo VU buffer kit Build thread

Got it, so I will bypass the rectifier! I can connect directly to the meters, but if I connect directly will that power the lamps? In the original design these meters and bulbs were connected to a shared PCB board that then had a four pin connector that connected to the original radiomixer electron...

Re: GAIN Mic Pre / Makeup Amp Kit

Hi - Looking similar application with passive EQ makeup gain. A little confused-- RGain - fixed resistor setting the max gain from DOA? GAIN - 10k Rev log applied to control/trim the gain. Do I need to have a resistor value inserted into "RGain" if I just hook up the the C10K pot to "Gain" and that...

Re: Scorpion Tube power Supply Build Thread

Ok - using the calculator Joe provided it appears this power supply would not be a good fit: (21*1.55)+(320*.077)=57.19=meltdown Nathan Yes correct. In the new year I will have a new HV supply that uses a normal off PCB toroid for the first transformer. So a 80VA or large can be used to run the fil...

Re: BAN Build Thread

Hello. I have a BAN related question, and I wonder if anyone here can help. I am thinking of building a fully balanced passive summing mixer (32x4x2) which has 4 group busses feeding one main mix bus. So 32 inputs in total, which are divided into 4 sets of 8 inputs feeding one stereo sub group bus ...

Re: LA500A opto comp MAY 2021 BUILD THREAD 500/51X

OK, I just built my extender cable. I have 1.23v using the Audio Test program linked. Power on, VU lights up, no LEDs. Not sure if that is correct. VU is pegged to the right. The 0VU trim pot has no effect on the needle. If I switch to GR the zero GR trim pot does work, I'm able to zero that one. T...

Re: LA500A opto comp MAY 2021 BUILD THREAD 500/51X

I built the LA500A, for the most part it was a breeze, much better lay out and instructions than the last 500 kit I built. I'm hung up on the setup. My extender should be here tomorrow. Is there a video, or some more detailed instructions on the setup? The only one that I'm really stumped on is ste...

I'm finding the slow attack mod just a bit too slow on my pair of LA500s. Would it be possible to tweak the attack time by swapping the 100uF capacitor for another value?

-Ross
HI Ross
Yes smaller value caps = faster attack. If you do not know which way +/- is then use Non Polar cap type.
