At least that is what AMEK said. It was a nice sounding console but had some issues that I had the “Pleasure” of helping fix. I also think he did some op-amp swaping but I can’t be sure. What does it sound like? I have used a bunch of Mozart’s when I was in LA. It had NO Rupert Neve modules. The biggest problem was that all the early boards were run off of Atari computers which were big in England at the time. It was OK but with some mods could be made better. November 28, The underside pan was basically hand hammered sheet metal and the Elco connectors were wired differently than all others that came after it.

Big mistake from a bean counter The only thing that I noticed was that you could hear the weak link in the console and that was the master section. Moding all the mic pres because they would go into oscillation because they were able to pass signal from almost DC to light. I just can’t believe they dropped the ball that bad on the caps. I’ve already done the Auxilliary send section over with higher temp caps and am working my way from the most troublesome area to the least as I go.
Had to mod them to roll off about Khz. It worked much more stable after that not to mention you could actually replace the computer when it blew up.

Is this way worth the hassle of installment and maintanance? The real question is are you really getting a Mozart with RN modules?
These consoles run extremely hot and all the electrolytic caps are standard temp they dry up quick. Is it any good? 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. The issue with the master section also rings true and I plan on mozatr it this winter, I’ve been pouring over the schematics and have some angles of approach scoped out.
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. Most owners went through and replaced it with PC’s when they offered this in 94, or 95 I think.
Second get your soldering iron ready since if the caps are original or close to original you are going to have a big re-capping job ahead of you.
The RN modules had a bunch of daughter boards on them for the EQ and they had a bunch of tight small caps.

The automation on those boards was simple but effective, and easy to use. I wish I could remember exactly. They were very nice console’s for the price.
Or moart you being fed a line of crap. They were very nice modules with a very similar design at least in the schematic to what Neve did on the first Focusrite modules. Good luck, Michael Greene.
I worked for the Bakery Studio in North Hollywood for 4 years and they had serial number of the Mozart in the A room. Amek mozart, any good? FIrst off my question is it a 56 frame loaded with 48 or is it a 48 input frame. Now the big problems.

If you were to use Neve Modules in these you wouldl have to replace the power supplies with the newer ones or they could not handle the power. If you can do mozaet and also maybe do some mods to the center section you will have a real decent console to sum with not to mention amk not bad to track with as far as eq’s go. Everything that Micheal says seems to ring true to me.
