Do they come with schematics?


Yes, schematics are included in the documentation.

Per brief recent discussion on Analogue Heaven, the user will need to supply a connector for the desired power supply. For example, to connect to a Blacet PS500/505/PSCONN, you will need a compatible 4 pin female connector for each kit you build.

I just got my Paia modules preassembled (since work keeps me almost exclusively busy), and the power cable was pre-assembled with a Paia-end mini female 4 pin connector (same voltage order as Blacet) with 4 unstripped lead wires. The wires were about 22" long--good length for those used to the standard Blacet power cables in their racks.

I can join the chorus about outstanding price and quality, and these do represent a change from the multifunctional modules in the base 9700 kits. To be fair, the pre-amp and the envelope modules together have less functionality than a Blacet 2225 I/O, but as someone who hacked a Blacet I/0 kit for a 1U module to preamplify external inputs, the Paia 9754 Preamplifier is a much simpler solution.

Not BTW, the preassembled modules come with an updated version of the familiar Paia assembly instructions. For someone who spent many wondeful hours absorbed in assembling 9700 system kits, the "Assembly and Using Manual" brought a little mistiness to aging eyes (without the solder fumes). Fitting tribute to John Simonton and his legacy!

So these will run fine off of a PS500 correct, as long as they have the right headers???

Just got mine today. I'm not a DIY guy, and this is going to sound remarkably stupid, but where can I get the right headers, and what is the technical name for them? Can they be purchased at say, radio shack? I'd like to get these up and running as soon as humanly possible, so that I can contemplate ordering more, because quite honestly, these prices kick ass.

Do you mean the headers for the unstripped ends of the power wires to connect to a Blacet type distro board? If so, you need to look for MTA-156 type housings like this:

http://uk.farnell.com/tyco-electronics-amp/3-640429-4/housing-24awg-4w ay/dp/1098736?in_merch=true&MER=i-9b10-00001460

But bear in mind you may need a special tool to get the wires in the housing - I'm not too sure as I've never made my own.

Personally, I would think the easier way would be to not bother fitting the Paia header on the PCB, get a normal Blacet power lead, and cut off one end - then you can solder the unstripped wires into the PCB rather than having to make up a housing to connect to the pwr supply.

That's exactly what I mean. If anyone could shed more light onto this, i'd appreciate it. I'm not a DIY type, and I have no solder skills. I'd also rather not solder anything onto the boards.

I'm curious as to how you crimp a wire in those housings as well. I've got a bunch I'd like to use... very frustrating

Scott Lee @ Paia has kindly provided front panel graphic images of the new modules for use with Rackplanner. applause

I've uploaded them so they are in the Module Maker queue now.

Ahh fuck... I am pissed that these came unstriped without headers on the distro end... I ordered a AI bus board when I could have just got Blacet style headers & plugged them into a Blacet PSU...

Where can I get some small PAiA style headers???
