Discrete Line Driver | Class A No-Feedback Transformer Driver

  • Inspired by Vintage Console Design from 60’s
  • Class A Discrete Driver
  • No-Feedback Loop Circuitry
  • Custom HRK Active Audio Transformer
  • Selected NOS Silicon and Germanium Transistors
  • LF Resonant Circuit for Extra Harmonics
  • Feedback Loop Option for Cleaner Sound
  • Compatible with DIYRE Colour Format

The Discrete Line Driver is the Class A, No-Feedback Loop Transformer Driver Colour Module. The design was inspired by the circuitry from Vintage Console from 60’s.

The Discrete Line Driver is made with Vintage NOS Silicon and Germanium transistors. The main driver circuit is build with three transistors creating a compact circuit with no Feedback Loop!

This special circuit is completely stable in the AC and DC domain. The Driver Circuit is DC coupled with the output transformer.

As a result, the Discrete Line Driver produces plenty of harmonics and provides better saturation of the output transformer.

The FEEDBACK jumper reduces the amount of harmonics and makes the sound cleaner.

The fourth Germanium Transistor in the input stage has the LF resonant circuit. If the LBOOST jumper is shorted, the module produces a low-frequency bump, saturating the output transformer in the LF’s.

The Discrete Line Driver Colour Module produces thick and full sound, just like the line drivers in the Vintage Mixing Consoles.


HRK Active Transformer

Bart Hrk developed the propitiatory design of an Active Transformer to solve the problems of the common passive transformers.

Passive transformers are susceptible to electromagnetic interferences (50Hz Hum, RF Smog) and the frequency response dependents on load and source impedance, negatively influencing the overall performance of analogue studio equipment.

The HRK Active Transformer delivers the sound that we love, including the harmonics content and the tonal response, and removes all the hassles associated with passive transformers.

The Active Transformer produces a subtle “Air” effect and provides extended LF performance.

The Active Transfomer saturation depends on the output level. Higher output signal levels will saturate the Active Transfomer more, like in the classic studio equipment.

7 Days Return Policy

 
Our return policy is a part of the general Terms & Conditions, which you must acknowledge at the checkout. We stand for fair rules and a win-win approach.
We understand that our customers may wish to return the product, and we provide such an option.
 
However, because we are a small company, we can’t afford to run a grade B outlet shop like big distributors and providing the 30 days return period. We can’t also scrap every returned unit.
 
We could charge our customers more to offset the cost of the returns, and this is what major distributors do. Or we can keep our prices low and hope that our customers will appreciate our policy.
 
This is why we provide the 7 days test period after receiving the package with the ordered items. If you wish to return the item, we will accept the return request, providing that the item is not damaged.
 

If the item is damaged during the transport, we will do our best to help you and provide the replacement product.
