Really patient work - enjoying following along.

The power brick remake looks solid and heavy! Is it quite a bit bigger than the original?

What’s the plan for the main board and sound boards Jim?

Are you considering the FPGA approach similar to this:


What are you thinking monitor wise?

Cheers

Power brick remake is same size as an original. I have an original ar2 PCB to use with it though will probably design a replacement for that to

yes thinking of getting a tempest fpga board ( major havoc) though this cab is also so I can fix original boards more easily to

monitor wise I will probably be making a colour vector from a donor monitor and one of the new kits available. Size wise will be seeing if 17” or 19” will fit in these cabs otherwise 14”

The vector kit sounds interesting Jim, do you have a link ?

Hi Drew - I just did a quick Google, as also intrigued. Maybe it’s this?

I'm having some time off this week and next so i'm not checking my messages much, but yes this is the place i'm looking at.

Also, I just sourced a nos 15" monitor tube and frame to use in my cabinet hopefully to, so alittle larger than stock cabaret as I wanted

That's really cool Jim. Are there any specific advantages of your version of power brick over the original?

I'm guessing your version is heavier - keeps the cab firmly on the ground!
