Hello guys!

I am moving in a house with my girlfriend and I "shotguned" the basement for my recording projects Wink

That is the easy part.

The hardes part would be to get my two (yes two!) MCI JH-24 from the first floor of my appartment to the basement of the house...

To reduce the weight, I am planning to take the PSU appart. I would protect it by wraping a big moving blanket around it.

Other than that, do you have any tips for making the job easier?

Thank you very much!

You might try contacting John French at JRF and see if he has any suggestions.

Hello all,

I know that this forum is largely dead, but I figured I would give it a try anyway.

I am assisting a colleague with installing 1/2" two track heads on a 110C. The heads are B/C heads, and the repro head has the same DCR as the 1/4" repro head of around 35.4 ohms. When running a brand new MRL IEC1 tape in repro, the 10khz response is -18dB down from the 1khz response. I did a test record as is on a new pad of RMGI 900 after boosting the input gain to set +4dB over bias, and swept tone from 1kHz and up, and discovered the -3dB corner to be at around 2800Hz.

Even though the heads measure the same DCR, and are manufactured for MCI B/C electronics it seems possible that an impedance mis-match is causing the 1/2" heads to act as a LPF filter above 2.8khz. Frequency response is flat up to that point.

So the question is, was there an errata or service bulletin dictating a component change on the audio electronics for conversion from 1/4" two track to 1/2" two track?

A patchbay for an JH428 will also work.  I did this the other way round, I got a 528 panel for my 428.

To answer your question, yes, it does work. I believe that the auto data only requires 9.6khz of audio bandwidth.

Before the Great Server Crash of '16, there were quite a number of threads of people using it successfully. In fact, as long as you run a fairly low latency record, it was said that there was less drift from pass to pass as there was when using JH-50 to tape.
