In another thread i mentioned that KAI-Products information: Test & Measurement Instruments and Power Supplies are no longer carrying the line.

I have been trying for some years to get a manual, and or a manual + schematic.

Seemingly it is impossible.

yes. Impossible... the USA rep said he cannot give/get or sell us a manual. must be some intellectual property/strategic issues they are controlling... like protecting their industry and market.

So we either design and build our own or we buy new/used equipment and modify or use 24bit sound cards with add-on interfacing and add-on filters and add-on software etc with limited but still fairly useful results.


Thx-RNMarsh

I try, but without success. The answer from kikusuiamerica.com:

And later from PTT Company Limited (Tokyo):

I still waiting for your VP7723 manual and will be very thankful to you.

I have the Panasonic brand --- but the rear panel lable says who makes it for Panasonic. it is not manufactured by Panasonic. There is a mfr of these instruments and there are Brands - different. I don't know who controls the rights to the design. Even though it isn't sold new at this time... I would think a copy could still be found for us by Panasonic. or we get the Levear model and look at their manual/schematics even if it isn't exactly the same (or is it?). Anyway, it is quit a run-around. The Panasonic, Levear and National brands all appear to use similar design concepts to the ShibaSoku. With their own updates and added feature set (like IM etc). As these come with GPIB and other features which indicate they were used a lot in production invirnment.

Thx-RNMarsh

This very typical of the Japanese. Brands get kicked around from year to year. Look what happened to Luxman yet there really is a Luxman Japan. RCA was bought by Samsung and Victor was bought by a Japanese company back in the 80s. One has to pay attention to the year of manufacture.

Hello :

Since the conversation included other analyzers other than Shibasoku 725, I would like to ask about Meguro MAK6581...does somebody has schematics or instruction manual for this one ?

thanks in advance.

yes -- very much into them all. I started with other brands and ended up finding the ShibaSoku but continue to want something fr everyone that is affordable and/or easy to make.

This and the A-P and QA400 threads are spin-offs of the mother one.

I havent seen one of your Megura... maybe others have -- but do you have pictures and its specs or web site?

Thx-RNMarsh

No, but overseas shipping, customs, VAT adds up ...
