    Tascam LA-40 Info Needed

    Hey all...do any of you have a schematic for the original (mk I) Tascam LA-40 converter box (balance/unbalance -10dBV to +4dBu)? Or if no schematic, if you have an original LA-40 in your arsenal would you be willing to open it up and take some pics of the guts for me?

    And FWIW this is research to solve a mystery with my prototype Tascam console...so this isn’t just some random inquiry for information...yes...your help could solve a mystery!

    I spent 30 min trying different search phrases with no luck at all. Seems others have been asking for this same info since 2013 in other communities. You may have to BTB and contact Tascam and purchase one. I hope someone can come to your aid.

    Thank you. I appreciate the effort! I don’t mind paying for a document, but I’m having trouble getting a Teac to call back. :\

    Thanks, Mack Caster.

    I was dialing that part dept number but it wasn’t going through. Probably something on my end. At any rate I got through to a live person and a reprint of the LA-40 Service Manual is on its way to me...$22 shipped. Not pennies but worth it to me to have a 1st generation authorized reprint. I’ve got burning questions about my prototype console that might be answered by the LA-40 tech docs.
