Pete, how is the Buzzy Beck mixer as far as quality? Does it have a true analog sound in your opinion? I have toyed with the idea of getting a DLC for a couple of years now.

The sound quality is fantastic. i would say it is a very analog sound, but not any more than other Bozaks. My DLA in comparison, which still has original caps has a slightly duller top end and doesn't sound quite as clean when blending. This is with vinyl mind you.

If you want a no compromises, best of the best Bozak, you won't regret getting a DLC.

A DL, DLA or DLB can be upgraded to DLC spec

Any mixer that age will need to be re-capped imo

Pete, do you have the Bozak 225 audio cards or the Bozak HB 225 audio cards? From what I understand the HB cards were design by BB & PH in the early 1980s for their custom Bozak HB mixer. They are different from all the standard audio cards because they were designed from the original early broadcast standard cards first used in the 1960s by Bozak. They would be a little flatter sounding than the normal DLA etc mixers and would be why you think it sounds cleaner. That is why I am looking for the DLC with HB audio output cards. Sounds like you may have one of those with the harder to find cards. New caps help refresh the mixers as vinyl junkie stated but the HB cards I am told are broadcast standard and you could possibly hear a different sound that would appear cleaner.

Yes I have the HB audio cards, along with the switchable 120/230V power supply, which is very handy as I am in Australia! These cards also have a slightly higher gain than the standard cards. John K is the one to contact as he has been selling these DLCs for Buzzy Beck on ebay

Yeah, Pete, gorgeous photos.

Hey: what kind of mixer stand is that? And can the rack ears be moved?

I mean, can you not only adjust the angle but also attach the rack ears so that they are higher up rather than centred? I want a desktop rack that is tall enough that I can position my turntables underneath it and have the mixer on top.

Its a Pro-Stand rack from Japan. The rack ears are fixed and can't be moved.

I was going to say the EXACT same thing but then thought I'd sound like the same e'ole asshole lol

Also under platter lights...
From memory doesn't the PSU have to be modified so it can provide enough power
