I’m imagining that my endgame would be using a y cable so that my preamp went out to a power amp input and b VU meter input. It is vintage and I believe a real VU.

The AL29 is a larger rectangular meter and will not fit in a 1U case. Who is online Users browsing this forum: I can guarantee its a clean file buit go ahead and scan it anyway. This is the one with internal rectification where you should omit the PCB diodes.

Or should I have say a high impedance input unity gain opamp buffer first and then into the VU board? So my first question is: It looks like most of the driver boards on the market have that 3 plug configuration.


So, should I just flip the input wires? Vj your layout it goes to pin 3! The PSU seems ok and I can’t find any other mistakes in the circuit Both channels behave exactly the same way which makes me believe it is a design problem I mean the veroboard layout, not the circuit design or a wiring messup that I did due to lack of understanding as opposed to bufver/driver minded” or “careless”.

LavaneMar 4, With the VU meter buffer board – would I simply through this on an output? Any advice is greatly appreciated and if this could work I will buy a pair of the buffer kits. And note you should be able to use cheap I.

Are these DC meters or AC meters btw? Bufer/driver was a lot of debate in the metters section of the mag about use and worth of Vu meters in modern studios – some swear by them, others think they add nothing.


A true VU meter has a defined ballistic characteristic–a certain “response”, for want of a better word. You may be able to find them used.

What do you think? So that junction of R1 and R3 goes to pin Here is the website from where I bought the buffer kit: It runs on its own with no support needed, DLLs and whatnot, nothing.

VU Meter kit?

Could it be the opamps? Would buffer/drivver main output sound be messed with if I did that? November 23, I read through some of the descriptions again.
