December 26, If not it’s better to remove the automation system? But never use ceramic bypasscaps on caps in the audiopath. Those desks were made on special order, so you got what you ordered. Your copies are on the way. Renew all thermal grease at the all rectifiers, regulators and power transistors. Some advice about other m25000 The rectifiers are bolted to the bottom of the case.
The great thing is that there’s a board diary with all the maintenance over the years You get great preamps, the best EQ ever and a lot of features with distinctive sound. The TO3 sockets of the regulators and power transistors sometimes have contact problems.
If you m2050 to stick with the original sound then replace with the same cap. Not shabby either, but these can be changed to modern That if you want less mud and distortion. They can get lose, reducing the thermal coupling to the case. Thanks Jensenmann for all the info Bypasscaps are fine, too, no matter if ceramic or poly.
Hi I’m starting to compile the buy list for the recapping and I need some help They sit close to the fader in the logic section. Thanks for great info!
The man says me that the console was recapped inbut inside, I see some caps that for me are the originals I’ve also a new spare cap uf, could use it for uf on psu? Hi I’ve opportunity to buy an Amek m in very great shape There are direct out on all channells? My desk is a pre series version without automation.
Some upgrade or change?
Check it out first before you think about upgrades. Hence they get baked and are prone to failure.
Some tantalums in this desk are in the audiosignalpath. Definitely recap the regulator boards and get rid of the tantalums over there. The master fader is VCA as well. Hi The console is at home!!!
After all that you should get rid of all tantalum caps on the channel strips, which are across the power rails. It’s possible to find something that could work? These are the original caps. Now I will try to scan them and if someone need them I will be very happy to share Replacing the big PSU caps with something else will be a mechanical problem. If you want it to sound more clean and modern then replace these caps with electrolytics und increase the capacity value by 2x to 4x.
Otherwise it might turn into a nightmare to figure out what others changed in circuits and signal flow. My schematisc are old, very used, barely readable and have a lot of handdrawn “modifications” on it. Renew these or solder the pins directly, m2500 the sockets.
The desk is entirely based on the VCA concept.
Recap it of course. I will receive the schematics scans in amekk next two days, after that I will share Some say that tantalum caps have infinite life. Next weeks i will pick up the console and i want to recap and check all, Some advice? There amej also, very big images with all the schematics! The console have automation installed the man say Optifile Tetra but I don’t have a original external computer.
Anything from 10uF to uF is fine.
