This listing is for a Transformer
Volume Control KIT. It DOES NOT include the Sowter 9335 attenuation
transformers. They can be purchased here http://www.sowter.co.uk/transformer-attenuators.php. 3-4 hours of assembly is required.
Most TVCs are created using point to
point wiring with large rotary switches.
While this method is effective it is not efficient and subject to the
"antenna" affect that is caused by 45 plus feet of exposed wiring.
Our kit is a version of our
production unit that began with the question of "why not mount the
transformers to a PCB?" We then surrounded the transformers with the
best telecom relays we could find and controlled them via ELMA PCB mount gold
plated rotary switches. The resulting TVC has extremely short
signal paths and clarity that exceeded our silver wired TVCs.
Please note that this kit was
developed with Sowter to be used with their attenuation transformers. The mounting holes, wiring holes, and
color coding match their attenuators.
What you get.
1) 1 PCB with the relays and
power supply regulation preassembled and tested
2) 1 9v power supply
3) 1 AC power cord
4) 1 Fuse
5) 1 Purple LED and mounting
hardware (any 5mm 3.5v LED will work)
6) 1 ELMA 24 position switch
and PCB header
7) 1 ELMA 12 position switch
and PCB header
8) 4 RCA phono connectors
9) 4 M3-50 screws
1) 1 project box
2) 4 stick on feet
3) 4 4-40 screws
4) 8 6-32nd cap
5) 4 6-32 3/8th
standoffs and nuts
6) 1 set of machine and
engraved front and back plates
7) 1 grounding post
8) 2 solid aluminum 1.58”
What you need to do
1) Order the Sowter
2) Solder in the
attenuators, switches, RCAs and LED
3) Assemble in the chassis
If you do not want to order
the chassis kit you can deduct $200 from the price.
If you would like SSAKITS to do the assembly we can for a charge of $250. Units will be built to order. This means that SSAKITS will need to order the transformers from Sowter. Total time from order to delivery will be 3-4 weeks.
SSAKITS parent company is in the process of working with vendors to release their entire product line. Till then, we will make available a limited production of our brand name manual TVC based on the same boards but with a better chassis. These units are also build to order in a 3-4 week delivery time. The chassis will be silver but different colors can be had for the engrave. Please send a message if you are interested and I can make a listing. Because dealers do not want competing direct sales, listings will only be made for individual purchases. Cost per unit is $2300. Once SSAKITS parent company finalizes the dealer agreements this offer will cease and dealer markups will be added.
