    Well they sure are interesting looking... thing to do is to find out if API stuff will fit in em too, that way you would be well situated to pounce on indavidual deals for em on ebay...
    They look to have a real Tape Op / retro styling..

    Pete,
    I've seen these listed on ebay all the time, not real cheap ........... however I've never heard them or know anyone who has. Search 'em out on ebay I think the manufacturer sells them there.

    Old School Audio. I know they are copies of API 312's. Does anyone know if they'll fit into an actual API rack?

    Call db (I believe they are located in Newton, MA) and ask to speak to Dave Butler. I've done business with him before, and you should get a straight answer to any of your questions.

    I'm getting a couple of these from Mark Linett. A quick deja (yeah, google, whatever) search gets good reviews--at least as good as API, maybe better (somebody said "more open" or something).

    I've got an Aphex lunchbox, & plan to pull two Aphex comps out and put in the Old School units. They're based on the api 312, DB says based on 512, maybe he's got something different from Linett. --Eric Agner

    OK... What's the deal with compatibility between Aphex, dbx and API racks? I know Aphex and dbx can be shared and API and Aphex can be shared, but can I mount API gear in a dbx rack? I'm sure I'd have to rewire the I/O but ehat else would need to be done if anything?

    Aphex may have made more than one flavor of lunchbox. What I've got is ALMOST compatible with API--the modules have to have pins 7 and 8 swapped, and there's no phantom.

    I dunno about the DBX racks.
