DBX 900 Mods
This 900a Series is in to get TRS jacks in to replace the terminal connectors. I made a Custom PCB to replace the board mount terminal connector and reuse the original metal work with a 3D printed mounting plate.
Ah-ha, the old TO-127 package! It looks like the middle 4 Darlington transistors are in this package mating with the 0.156" connectors. The outer two regulators are conventional TO-220, going directly into 0.1" sockets.
Easy to take apart, but it's a very unreliable way of connecting to power device leads. Any increase in contact resistance through ageing can quickly build into a run-away failure.
Exactly what I was thinking, I might be taking that connector off and soldering straight to the pcb
Pretty impressive! Is the rear panel in the same position as it was originally, or did you have to move it back a bit to cater for the length of the TRS sockets?
Actually I brought the back out further, the racks has wings the project backwards ...so it works
Looks like.a job well done!
