Calrec Minimixer Mk 2 Manual or schematics required

Hello All

I'm at my wits end now I have tried various forums and old posts but to no avail, I have started a new thread in the hope it might get picked up by somebody.


I have a Calrec Minimixer mk2 24 ch and am trying to restore it, unfortunately as Calrec have decided that the manual is intellectual property it's no longer available from them so fault finding is proving rather ticky.

Calrec themselfs have been very helpful with info that are authourised to give but I'm kind of stuck.

if anybody has any info I would be eternally gratfull and willing to cover costs.


Ideally I'm looking to get the workshop manual as a PDF but would be happy with anything I can lay my hands on

its has

BQ3141 stereo line I/P modules
XC3706 stereo Groups with Dynamics
AY3143 main o/p
and
ML3144 monitering section.

Thanks in advance

All of that is for the Mk. 1.

Not trying to bash as you are contributing at all.

I've been on a similar road and have not had any luck at all.

Calrec are great but are not forthcoming with anything approaching the full documentation.

Plus, each desk was custom mix of modules and to make matter worse, some of the same modules are built with through hole and later iterations of the same modules are SMT. They only way to know? Calrec docs of course.

The circuitry is superb but the complexity of the designs and construction makes it hard to work out what is going on.

I attach all the info I have on the Mk. 2 which is limited to an overall schematic and some spec sheets for the individual modules.

If you find anything, please do let us know on here.

Cheers and good luck, these are wonderful desks and I have two so I can take my time!
