I have recently purchased a DDA AMR24, So far everything seems ok but I do have a problem.. When i assign a track to one of the busses i.e. 1-2 when bringing up the corresponding faders i seem to have a really week signal almost as if it is out of phase... Can any body help?

I just bought, at a great price, a DCM 224v..Short Loaded with 25 Channels... It is of course going to need some work... But I'm up for it...
I have is set up n my "B" Room (My Beloved Amek Angela 2 is in the A room) and i plan to Restore and Mod it... It was in service up until 2011 and was recaped in 2007 (So i've been told) ... Anyway, Here are my issues..


Several Knobs.... Does anyone know what the part number is or a supplier ?
The CPU.. I Don't plan to use the Automation but needed to turn on the Auxes and Phantom power ect..
The 8 Group Faders... with Red Fader Caps...
Meter Bridge Back Cover...
One Fader for the Stereo Matrix


The Audio Power Supply... 48 volts works fine...
II am going to build a Powerone or acopian PS for 18 volt Powersupply... Advice need here...

If i can't find the computer any advice on how to "MOD" the Auxes so there are just on?

Any Help and/or advice will be appreciated....

Hi All,
So pleased to have found a DDA section on this forum! I have an old 32 channel Q-series that I'd like to put mic transformers into but I can't find any information on how to physically go about it. I know that the transformers I need are the Neutrik NTM1 variety and I'm confident on performing the mod but I need to know: do I have to take out the current op amp or replace the capacitors currently sitting across the where the transformer should go? Those types of questions.

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

I've just bought a DDA forum monitor console (12x10), it came without a master buss module (I got it for a steal).

Now while I try to source a master buss module, I came across some other small DDA consoles. If I were to pick up say a DDA interface or CS8, would I be able to link my Forum Monitor to it and use the new consoles master buss to control both consoles.
I mean the channel strips are all modular, could I even purchase DMR or AMR strips for it? Obviously I'll need a bigger frame.

I've looked around the forums but haven't found any thing resembling this question. I can hold a soldering iron and have a basic knowledge of electronics, but this is over my head a little.

Sorry if the answer is obvious and I'm oblivious!

Oh and if anyone has a spare master buss module for a DDA Forum Monitor, please send me a message.

Hi guys I’m having trouble with noise on the master send section on an old DDA AMR24 console. It has a low frequency hum. Do you have any suggestions or know of anybody that could help me quiet this section of the console down
