What would the annual maintanance cost be aprox? These consoles run extremely hot and all the electrolytic caps are standard temp they dry up quick. The biggest problem was that all the early boards were run off of Atari computers which were big in Mozxrt at the time. Mine has the Atari to PC conversion done.

They were very nice modules with a very similar design at least in the schematic to what Neve did on the first Focusrite modules. The underside pan was basically hand hammered sheet metal and the Elco connectors were wired differently than all others that came after it. The automation on those boards was ameo but effective, and easy to use. I’ve already done the Auxilliary send section over with higher temp caps and am mozatr my way from the most troublesome area to the least as I go.

I also think he did some op-amp swaping but I can’t be sure. Or are you being fed a line of crap.

It had MZ and MZ modules which if I remember right were Inline dual input modules and single mic,line input modules. November 29, We had to replace every faceplate on every module but never fixed the Patch bay or center section that I remember. Again they were nice sounding modules with nice eq in the older AMEK vein. He was really into bypassing caps that were not totally needed.


They made a couple and then standardized to 40 input and 56 input on up to 80 input I don’t know if any of these were every made but I think they did offer it as an option. If you can do that and also maybe do some mods to the center section you will have a real decent console to sum with not to mention something not bad to track with as far as eq’s go. FIrst off my question is it a 56 frame loaded with 48 or is it a 48 input frame. November 30, I worked for the Bakery Studio in North Hollywood for 4 years and they had serial number of the Mozart in the A room.

Big mistake from a bean counter They were very nice console’s for the price. They packed too much into them with almost the whole channel strip fitted with dual concentric knobs it made it tough to see the eq and also the sends but you got used to it. I should also mention that we upgraded the supplies at the recommendation of AMEK even without the RN modules and it improved the sound of the console.

Again a bunch of beta testing.

At least that is what AMEK said. I wish I could remember exactly. Bad silkscreening that was impossible to read under dim light. Good luck, Michael Greene. I’ve got a Hendrix which is I believe one step above the Mozart. Most owners went through and replaced it with PC’s when they offered this in 94, or 95 I think. It had NO Rupert Neve modules. It was a nice sounding console but had some issues that I had the “Pleasure” of helping fix.

It had mute switches on the modules and all after it had them right above the fader with bigger switches.

Amek mozart, any good?

The RN modules had smek bunch of daughter boards on them for the EQ and they had a bunch of tight small caps. The issue with the master section also rings true and I plan on attacking it this winter, I’ve been pouring over the schematics and have some angles of approach scoped out. Now the big problems. Amek mozart, any good? Is it any good? I have used a bunch of Mozart’s when Amekk was in LA.


So fucking hot that we had to re-cap all the modules after a year because they used cheap caps that dried out from the heat. Everything that Micheal says seems to ring true to me.

The real question is are you really getting a Mozart with RN modules? It was OK but with some mods could be made better. What does it sound like?

November 28, They suck to mpzart. Moding all the mic pres because they would go into oscillation because they were able to pass signal from almost DC to light.

The only thing that I noticed was that you could hear the weak link in the console and that was the master section.

We had a mozartt tech at the time and he went through cleaned things up a bit. It is pretty probable that we can pick up one of these for virtually free, 48ch, with neve designed ch strips, according to the “seller”.

The Hendrix was designed as a lower entry point to the Mozart but after working on one I felt like maybe they fixed some of the things zmek bugged me about the Mozart. It worked much more stable after that not to mention you could actually replace the computer when it blew up.
