Phase Linear part?

Post by Planerguy » Mon Jul 18, 2011 4:23 pm

Not sure where to post this question? let's try here -

Does anyone know where one might find a suitable replacement VU meter for the early Bob Carver designed Phase Linear 400?
I have a pristine 400, but one meter is shot; not repairable. It seems it probably was an off the shelf meter movement at the time these were being made. Trying to find any such thing these days though is like Mission Impossible.
Maybe one of you has an old chassis laying about? Worth a shot.

If this was the wrong place to post the question, feel free to chastise me.

Maybe keep your eye out for a "not working for parts" listing on eBay?
