Re: Re:

Hey, if take a look at the original schematics the output wasn't balanced at all, hence I was comfortable just using the RCA connector and not adding XLR too. In the original the output signal goes to pin 3 of the XLR, GND to Pin 1 and pin 2 is left floating. A better choice would be to tie pin 2 to...

Anything mentioned will work, main rail is only 40V. I bought a huge lot of 160V polystyrenes and included them with the PCB and Panel sets I sold, hence the voltage in the BOM.

I've seen PCBs with a hole punched or drilled to permanently mark them, something like this could work:

Been busy with life and other projects, have been playing around with a 5U height module version of the Calrec PQ1549 and a new DJ mixer design. The Biphase is working 100% now though. I have a list of changes to roll out in a Rev.2 PCB but am yet to implement anything on the files. This unit will b...

Lead times kept getting extended on the LDRs I wanted so I decided to just bung in the ones I had on hand (~5K@LUX to 500K) to test it out. Seems to be working.

Re: Lightbox I'm going to get a friend to 3D print this for me. I've never actually had anything 3D printed so I imagine there may be a few tweaks to this design once they have a look over it. Basically it is intended for use with a 20mm spacer and 2x M3 screws, for no reason other than I bought a b...

These units are in stock at Allied, but paying 3x as much as the value of items in shipping isn't something that sits with me.

@aabbcc

Thanks very much for the kind offer! I'd be happy with anything that drops to 100's of ohms at Lux and over a 1M or so in darkness.

The parts I'm waiting for are NSL-5152, datasheet can be found here:

Another brief update... to say I've got no updates. The local surplus house was able to sell me 1000pc of Hamamatsu LDRs for less than the cost of a coffee but they aren't appropriate for this project, unfortunately. The LDR units I'm now chasing won't be in stock until the 20th of this month, so th...

Oops, sorry about the orientation of some of those images. If anyone knows how to edit the rotation of images after upload I'd love to know about it. Update: PCBs came in and look good.
