Hi....to get at the motherboard below armrest I can't seem to remove the cover (does not drop down like the belly pan covers after removing screws).  Do I need to remove modules to access screws inside as well?  MCI 528B console

Thank you!


No. Give it a good yank

I'm selling my little MCI 618 console and going portable  Undecided

I'll be sad to see it go but would love for it to find a new home (I rescued it from storage 10yrs ago, bought a bunch of spare channels off of eBay, changed all of the local decoupling caps, did a few chip upgrades and got it running pretty darn well! I've used it extensively on countless dozens of records and it's still in use today and being maintained)
The master and monitor sections have been extensively and carefully modded by Zimbel Audio - zimbelaudio.com

There's no major faults beyond a few switches and pots that need a bit of exercise now and then and a squirt of deoxit every year or so, comes with a (very) nearly complete but short wiring harness and almost 100 TT cables plus 6 spare tuchels, 6 spare input modules (mostly a bit pirated for parts though) and some other bits and bobs. It's got 41 inputs on mixdown (18 normal line ins, 18 line in through the channel path through a simple mod to the mixbus and 5 fx returns) and for me it was the absolute perfect console for mixing analog at home.
 
looking for $3500 (which is of course a small fraction of what I have into it but I understand the market for consoles is somewhat smaller than it used to be for some reason  Cool  ) needs to be picked up, and would require movers at least to get it down the stairs and out of my house (after that however you want to move it is up to you!)


cheers,
Stew

Selling a pair of John hardy MPC600 preamp cards, both work perfectly (they are from different production runs but sound the same to my ears)

USD$450 for the pair plus shipping from Toronto, Canada

Hi again folks

I forgot to add that the deal also includes cable and edge-connector test harnesses for all the modules to make bench servicing easier.

Cheers

Mike

Hi folks,

I think it is about time to say goodbye to my MCI 636. Its done sterling service for me for the last 15 years or so, and its about time someone else had the pleasure rather than it going to the breakers yard

Description is as follows:

36  module frame, populated with 26 standard I/O cards all fully working
Meter bridge is standard VU meters with all bulbs working  Smiley
4 spare I/O modules
Except for 4 I/O modules, all cards have been recapped and re-socketed  Any failed IC replaced with Philips/Signetics 5532/5534. If the 4 modules not recapped is a deal breaker we can work on that.
The automated faders have been removed and replaced with Penny and Giles long throw faders with new facia plates The automation control cards are still inside the console belly.  (I could never get on with those VCA, they always sound grainy to me and I don't have the fader modules any more)
A box of spare 2003/2004 chips
Modules Extended card included in the deal
Power supply recapped 4 years ago and new fans installed
EMI TG line amp clones (x8) installed below the patchbay
Patchbay has the mic inputs presented
No 2-mix mod made with 2520 clones
I could probably add in the DIN connectors as well
Arm rest recovered with black fine lather

Generally, the console sounds very clean. Is is physically in superb condition.

It is based in the UK (Aylesbury) and I am looking for offers in the region of 5K and it will take three strong men (supplier to provide) to shift it with all the modules removed.

Please PM me if you have an interest or want to pursue it.

Cheers

Mike

You can feed from the console to the tape deck & convertor with no problems.   

Returning the signals to the console you need some sort of switching arrangement.    You can get old computer 25 way Dsub signal switches for next to nothing now, which is not a bad way to go for doing this.   This works out well if switching in 3 banks of 8 suits you workflow.

This sort of thing

This one is expensive but I have got them for 2 or 3 each.
