Oh, I wouldn't go as far as irrelevant, just, "excessively educational".

Call me a freak but this is one of my favorite threads. I agree about keeping the science references correct as it eliminates any sort of murkiness. A few years ago a client of mine asked me to do some sound control in his studio.

He gave me a list of measurements that were pertinent and some suggestions of size for bass traps, windows etc.

How surprised he was when we realized he'd measured in metric and not labeled it as such. An expensive mistake to commit.

I didn't mean to sound preachy in my earlier post... just love to encourage newcomers to audio to learn as much as possible...

There's a great book I highly recommend to anyone serious about learning audio engineering. It covers everything from basic interconnections to the math&physics behind concepts like the +4/-10 question that started this topic... Audio Systems Design & Installation by Philip Giddings

Its a pretty expensive textbook, but it covers a vast amount of audio technology - even stuff like electrical grounding in studios, HVAC in studios, etc.
Its one of my reference bibles...

Again, REALLY pricey ($100+ probably) so see if you can check it out at a library first ! (Keep in mind too that this is a textbook, not a basic home-studio-recording-techniques book.... it covers the engineering side of things, and not recording/production techniques)

" Music Physics and Engineering" is a paperback book that is mostly engineering, physics and is cram packed with info. Very difficult read at points because of the data packed into it, but, it is like a reference manual for the whole shmear. It doesn't teach about the latest gadget but it does go through banging two rocks together to beyond Nyquist theorem.

Looks more like $300 - used only - on Amazon

too bad, good reference books are always an asset.

Music Physics, and Engineering (formerly titled Musical Engineering) Harry F. Olson, has all the formulae in it also for every audio-centric calculation from Son to db and everything else. I think it was $8 or so.
Keep looking, there is even socialized medicine in the US if you look into it.

Bump from the future.

I'm looking at the manual myself, and want to do the +4dbu mod, but the OP said elsewhere that the manual misidentifies the correct circuit numbers. The manual states R130 and R131. On another forum I read that someone eventually had no sound coming from the board at all, but fixed it when he realized what happened (probably cut the wrong thing due to the manual). When I do this I hope I do it right...

On top of this mod I would also like to do the power supply mod but I'm not sure how difficult that is.
