Schmidt & Wergin Consoles / Any Info about them?

Hi slutz,

i have the opportunity to buy a schmidt & wergin Console. Anybody from you ever touched one of these? How is it build? How does it sound? I checked the console it needs some service and has a full tone... But it was not my listening environment...

Appreciate any Info.

it is about 25-30 years.

i dont know if it is zero ohm, inputs are balanced else i dont know, the guy who is selling it is not a gear nerd, he used the console but has not that much background infos.

it is the second console from the top: WK III Audio: History

WK III Audio: ID-STATION ah ok, that's a console with digital control over parameters.
I'm sorry I don't know much about those. But I do know I wouldn't pay a lot for that.
The broadcasters have moved on, and most ppl. mix inside the computer if digital.
Perhaps it sounds good, but if the brain fails you have a problem: so please inform first at the manufacturer if they still service it?

No it is not that Console...

take this link: WK III Audio: History

there are some photos of the history of the consoles this company has manufactured in black and white. It is the second console.

i atteched an picture.

it is fully analog and has a patchbay. it has some penny and giles faders... they are not cheap so i think they used good components, it has some 4558 and some ne 5534 opamps in it.

i would do the service on my own. i recapped and repaired some consoles and some gear. the console is working, all channels passes signal, only 1 is lower on the output else it works. i need to know how much was the initial price of this console? Are all of this manufacturer high quality or are some cheap and useless....???
