    I am designing my Akai MG1214 into my new studio desk design. The other console is the Allan & Heath QU24.

    I have removed the palm rest and relocated the front plugs to the rear. Should be a sweet analogue option for clients.

    so thanks to all of the info in this thread, and parsing over the service manual, i was able to get my akai mg1214 transport repaired and fully working, however after putting it through its initial paces of recording i noticed that there is a slight hum that only activates when the play button is pressed and you have one or more tracks turned up. my thoughts at this point are that there is a ground/bad capacitor issue somewhere in the play circuitry or possibly there is a ground/short issue with the dbx noise reduction that would be activated when play is pressed. j.harv or anyone else, have any similar issues such as this? thoughts on it?

    just to be thorough i have checked extensively and there are no other hums coming from anywhere else, only when play is pressed, and it occurs both with and without a tape inserted so i know it isn't coming from the tape playback itself.

    Looks great....though I must confess I love the look of some actual reels spinning round. Any reason you went for the QU24 over say the X32 or the Studiolive Version3?

    We already had the QU so we went with that for the moment due to budget restraints. I will be doing a mod to the Akai to supply phase reverse and 48v per channel soon so we can use any type of mic. Got it all worked out.
