LCR EQ Phonostage Prototype Just Continue ...

After made previous LCR EQ module for testing concept.

This previous module show the great result, my friend asking to borrow for replace

his current LCR EQ module and return me with money not module. :)

So I need to do LCR EQ module again and I've found this video clip for

LCR EQ Phonostage with all WE parts.

It's look interesting but I still prefer inductor from Sowter cause from low DCR.

Low DCR inductor make equalizer more accurate than higher DCR inductor like WE.

Other main components use WE parts for reliable quality and result.

LCR EQ module with "L" from Sowter and "CR" from WE.

Assembly with main phonostage plate.

Will update soon after finishing install all components.

JBL Solid State Energizer

I've got these 2 JBL power amplifiers for modification, SE408S and SE400E.

SE408S was design to use with JBL Paragon and use same circuit like SE400S.

But SE400E has less information than others.

After open SE400E, components and circuit inside is the same as SE401.

So I understand clearer about model of JBL power amplifiers.

SE400S = SE408S = SE460 (Silicon Transistor)

SE400 = SE400E = SE401 (Germanium Transistor)

And Germanium version using interstage transformers !!!

This card indicate that using for D50S8R Olympus.

Will check all coupling capacitors and resistors, bring vintage tone back here.

To be continue ...
