Well done Colin!

Perhaps an excuse to finally sip my toe back into the 500 series pond again!

@slenderchap Are there tonal differences in with the 1073 mic and 1073 line preamps on your site. Looking for something to boost gain and add flavor when mastering OTB and conflicted on which pair one to get. Thanks!

I’m not slenderchap but I’d imagine the same as this unit has the line input stage whilst the preamp has the mic input tx for mic level signals.

Since you are already at line level when mastering, you would use a 1073-line amp (or the new ez1073-eq).... a mic amp would just be the wrong input impedance.

It would not be realistic to put a 1084 EQ in a single slot as there is simply not enough room .... it would be like the new ez1073eq but with extra controls and parts.... and there simply isn't the space to do it.... unless you miss out the input transformer or build it surface mount... and then there is no point doing it (in my opinion)...

Not really.... I have a simple VCA based compressor design which could be done in a single slot but finding time is the issue.... anything "serious" like the 54F50 would need more than one slot as there is too much in them and there are too many controls for the faceplate.

not to swing too far into 1084 territory,...
i'd say it's possible, there's the LAZ EQN1084.

Of course you can do it if you don't make a 1084 properly.... the EQN is missing the low pass filter, has no gain control, is missing 2 inductors and has a miniature output transformer... why bother unless you are going to do it all .... as soon as you opt for a small output transformer it won't give you the sound you want anyway ? (It would be possible to make one in 2 slot).

That would actually be pretty cool; like your pultec 500 series.

Unfortunately it has become abundantly clear that this project is far too difficult for many of the DIY builders... so we can no longer offer it as a kit... it will be read-built only and available from dealers.

Sorry.

Will this be available through VK? This is exactly what I’ve been looking for.

I might need to finance, but will happily buy at least 4.

I believe so. I have no sent them appropriate information, sure they will soon appear on their site ... you may need to ask them for it.. it takes a while for new things to appear on their site.

Yes. They did respond, and told me they would eventually add it.

I usually wait to take advantage of VK’s 36 and 48 financing options though, and I was told VK usually does not do extended financing on AML. Bummer.

I’ll still keep my eye on this, and hope that situation changes. I really like the fact that your module has both transformers... it’s perfect for folks like me who want the sound, but work primarily with line level sources (and don’t need more preamps).

Either way, it looks like you are ahead of the game. This really makes sense for the way many of us work nowadays.

If you can't wait? I'm in the USA and it's unbelievable how fast I get the stuff from AML direct. I'll put in an order and within a couple days it's at my door. Top notch service for sure.

VK have now added these... they are also available from Frontendaudio.com, scitscat.com, studiologsound.com...


What was so difficult?.... probably just the density of components... there is so much inside it.
