Interesting comments on Amek power supplies...

they are NOT all the same... not by a VERY long way.

I'm sitting a dozen feet and 2 walls away from 2 fancooled 4U 2000 series PSU's that supply my desk, and I have technical and service schematics for several OTHER different models....

some installations were under spec, but AFAIK, that's often because the user was too tight to buy and install the number of PSU's recommended, and had the consoles wired for less. this applies to most of the large format manufacturers....

mind you, it would help if the manufacturers hadn't priced the power supplies in line with a small house, and over specc'ed their "std recommendations" by say 30% ....
and at several thousand quid a shot... whilst arguably a good longevity move, not necessarily the most economically attractive one I've ever seen. you'd have the sales guy saying, you needed say 4 PSU's , when you actually needed 3, but because you didn't trust them, you only ordered 2.

crazy.....


back on Topic.

the TLA VTC console does the TLA sound very well... but god help you if you want a more neutral "Clean" sound....

personally I feel the should stick to small "submixers " like the M3, and outboard. even then some of it is an acquired taste.... however, some of it i REALLY like.,...

(Specifically, their old Indigo series Compressors, EQ and Mic pre's , which are all discontinued, although in some form, may partly live on in the "classic " blue range)

then you can just add however much you want of it, in a controlled fashion....

Don't get the hump when i tell you it's going to be expensive, it's not my fault , you picked the site/building/room â
