They were very nice console’s for ammek price. The only thing that I noticed was that you could hear the weak link in the console and that was the master section.

Mine has the Atari to PC conversion done. What does it sound like? Bad silkscreening that was impossible to read under dim light.

Again they were nice sounding modules with nice eq in the older AMEK vein. Or are 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. We had a good tech at the time and he went through cleaned things up a bit.

It worked much more stable after that not to mention mzart could actually replace the computer when it blew up. The real question is are you really getting a Mozart with RN modules?

I should mzoart mention that we upgraded the supplies at the recommendation of AMEK even without the RN modules and it improved the sound of the console. At least that is what AMEK said.

It was OK but with some mods could be made better. I’ve got a Hendrix which is I believe one step wmek the Mozart. Again a bunch of beta testing. I have used a bunch of Mozart’s when I was in LA. 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”.


November 30, Had to mod them to roll off about Khz. FIrst off my question is it a 56 frame loaded with 48 or is it a 48 input ame. Is this way worth the hassle of installment and maintanance? I just can’t believe they dropped the ball that mozaet on the caps. Is it any good?

Amek mozart, any good? It was a nice sounding console ameek had some issues that I had the “Pleasure” of helping fix. 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 that bugged me about the Mozart.

November 29, We had to replace every faceplate on every module but never fixed the Patch bay or center section that I remember. Most owners went through and replaced it with PC’s when they offered this in 94, or 95 I think. It had MZ and MZ modules which if I remember right were Inline dual input modules and single mic,line input modules.

The RN modules had a bunch of daughter boards on them for the EQ and they had a bunch of tight small caps. Second get your soldering iron ready since if the caps are original or close to original you are mizart to have a big re-capping job ahead of you.

The automation on those boards was simple but effective, and easy to use. What would the annual maintanance cost be aprox?

The underside pan was basically hand hammered sheet metal and the Elco connectors were wired differently than all others that came after it. Now the big problems. 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. Moding all the mic pres because they would go into oscillation because they were able to pass signal from almost DC to light. These consoles run extremely hot and all the electrolytic caps are standard temp they dry up quick.


Everything that Micheal says seems to ring true to me. 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. 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.

I wish I could remember exactly.

The biggest problem was that all the early boards were run off of Atari computers which were big in England at the time. Good luck, Michael Greene. 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. I also think he did some op-amp swaping but I can’t be sure.

Big mistake from a bean counter I worked for the Bakery Studio in North Hollywood for 4 years and they had serial number of the Mozart in the A room. 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.

November 28, It had NO Rupert Neve modules. They suck to re-cap. 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.
