    Before this 'mixerfest' gets locked, a thought occurs regarding the Toft's noise?

    Douglas Self's Small Signal Audio Design goes into the choice of internal OP levels for mixers. The common standard is -2dBu (615mV) but if a lower level is chosen the mixer can be touted as having higher headroom but the signal to noise specc will suffer. The choice of -2dBu becomes +4dBu at the output (for a symmetrical dual balanced amplifier) and gives a headroom of some +22dBu if conventional op amps running at +&-18V* are used.

    +22dBu (~10V rms) is surely enough for most peeps? I have to wonder what the Toft's internal levels are?

    *Self also advocates the use of seventeen volt supplies. This gives a loss of headroom of only 0.5dB but reduces op amp failures to virtually zero.

    Dave.

    I owned a Ghost up until about 5 years ago. It had the Jim Williams mods on the master section and a couple of channels done also. It was a lot better sounding than a stock one.
    Chord with this, Teddy......
