mystery mixer

So I got this from ebay and it hasn't arrived yet but I want to hear what you guys think... this looks like a custom made or homemade mixer but could be some channel strips? Any ideas?

Outside looks like simple diy. Maybe the ETI magazine mixer from the 80'es?

Pics of inside (pcb's) would probably help.

Hi
Interesting that it has PPM scaled meters fitted. I wonder if they have the 'proper' drive cards?
The 'replacement' XLRs fitted at jaunty angles is 'interesting' too.
Pictures of the insides would speak volumes.

Whatcha reckon then, could they possibly be channel strips or is it all just junk?

Hi
As a mis-quote, 'one man's junk is another man's pride and joy'.
When you get it, open it up and post pictures. There is likely to be some marking on the circuit boards which will be a vast help in identification and possible information.
The comment about the 'ETI' mixer is interesting, a DIY project from a magazine in the '80's. I happen to have that in my 'bedtime reading' pile at the moment (along with SSL 4K and other desk manuals).

Matt, are you familiar with the PEI (Precision Electromagnetics) mixer project? I have had no luck finding information about it beyond this clipping from Billboard and a web site that racked some of the preamps...

Hi
No, not this one.
There was a series by Steve Dove (who was associated with 'ALICE' either before, after or during) which detailed circuitry but not PCBs or kits for mixers.
I was working at Audix at that time who had their own take on the 'current technology' as of course all manufacturers did (do).
Would be interested in seeing more if you can dig anything up.
