Linkwitz wm-61a mod preamp PCB, any comments?
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hey guys,

I have designed a PCB for Linkwitz WM-61a mod preamp.
I went for a design with two gain options (x10 and x100), pseudo balanced output (hence 200ohm resistors). Also, I wanted to make it as-small-as-possible and all DIP based for easy beginners assembly.

Any comments?

Thank you!

Hey, old thread, but I was searching for this exact thing. Did you ever make pcbs from this or find someone who makes them?

Thanks!

I wonder why he has connected the junction of R1 /R11 to -9V?
Is this a version of phantom powering?
Surely this junction goes to audio ground.

no it's correct
(the mic capsule mod, changes the FET inside it to a source follower.)

just use perfboard all the originals used perfboard.
perhaps use the PCB layout above for a parts placement/ wiring guide?
