just received a first batch of midi2lathe prints.
they fit an arduino nano. so programming is easy!
all optocoupler for START/STOP/FAST/MARK
and 4 LEDS for control.
another few meters of cable and connections can be saved.
i made a new input board and FBmon balanced output that goes directly on the back of the SAL74 rack.
best laser trimmed input and shortest signal path possible.
thats how it should be done. we still work hard to reduce your SAL74 rack to the max.
nice balanced input stage (THAT124x ,INA137….)
presetable line attentuator or direct stepped attentuator
optional optical isolated mute stage for faster switch off and muting.
balance output (DRV13x or THAT 154x) for FB monitor.
all on a nice small board.
available beginning march. place your preorder now.
after almost 20 years of heavy search. the holy grail of phonograph pickup arrived safely in my lab.
the whole neumann playback chain is complete.
repairs are possible. stay tuned.
first integration of a pitch13 on a vms80/VMS82.
on my „to do list“ for a long time.
those 80ies electronics is close or already over end of life.
a repair is often not very economic. having pitch13 for those lathes was a question since years.
now the first VMS80 runs with pitch13. except the turntable and pitch motor drive card all is brand new. even BGE80 is a new programmable card.
to be continued..
we are prepared for your broken VMS80/82.
full SAB74 encoder feedback setup in stock!
the encoder is already avalilable for a few month.
now i also got the feedback card in original neumann lenght (274mm)
so the double card can be produced.
first 3 sets are built and tested.
it has slightly different schematics. no more stacked print.
nice SSM2019 flokason state of the art input for feedback circuit.
optional light beam correction on request. original neumann parts and configuration on request.
this is the plug&play drop in.
the cards will be all matched pair.
all important caps hand selected <0.5%. all transistors and FETS measured and paired to get best channel matching.all measured and compared for best performance. i strongly recommend the ultracut version. that means slightly changed values for better performance. removed lightband correction filter no cutter equalizer->one opamp less. much better sound.
price per pair is CHF: 5000.-
if you can recycle your old front plates it will be even less.
always missing or broken. or at least a nice to have item.
finally FLoKaSon brings you a lowcost heavy duty phono preamp for MM-Systems.
balanced line output. adjustable output level with multiturn spindle trimmer. heavy duty hammond case.
no fancy or esotheric schematics. just simple.
nice decent 1% metal film resistors. hand selected foil caps. sockets for opamps. and nice output stage. needs +/-15V external power supply.
we currently check for a nice supply. but you can attach to SAL74 rack or other gear with dual power supply.
We just installed the first TT15 Motor.
This one is a lyrec replacement or can be used for any lathe with direct drive shaft.
Best for polycarbonate cuts because of high torque.
motor needs to be under the lathe connected by a clutch.
Motor has approx 3-4 times more torque than a technics SP-02!
at the moment the motor is not quarz locked yet. but we work on that.
its a low cost alternative to Technics SP02, or FlokaSOn TT14.
Motor has 450W electrical Power.
Diameter is 250mm.
Shaft Diameter is 16mm for direct lyrec replacement
At the moment we can not guarantee a full repair of sc99 cutterheads.
we work hard on getting all important parts to rebuild those heads to full specs.
just received a first batch of systemholders.
the main important parts are:
drivecoil body * not available yet. but in most cases we can recycle.
system holder. on stock
springs on stock
spring holder and distance on stock
feedback coils . limited quantity on stock
drive magnet systems . limited quantity on stock
feedback magnet systems. on stock
So we are to 80% ready for new rebuild. still missing a few specific tools. but priority is not the highest but by mid 2015 all should be here.
