That's 69/79 for the SVU-1, no?   ???  

I believe Matt's referring to the SVU-2...

To bad GuysGraphics won't put it on ebay for less than $100  ;)  

When I originally contacted guy graphics I told them that if this unit worked out well, he would be selling more, and he should give me a deal since I was the official guinee pig.  He said at $125 he was only making $10, so If I do see this on e-bay for $100... I'm gonna be bent!


He has them on ebay buy it now 79 bucks. Starting bid 69
That is the svu-1... I have the svu-2
I do think taping is the reality of the business..it is also an impetus for artists to create studio CDs that are ART, not just another recording...    Fareed Haque  2-4-2005

cool... I LOVE hbrsb!!! I can hardly wait to catch them at the wu reunion.  I haven't seen them yet... just heard a few ARCHIVAL RECORDINGS.  They get a mean groove going IMO! (Please note concious attempt to not say the "B" word!)

Well, if the mounting foot will remove easily, I am going to order the SVU-1. Then, I think I am going to re-label the front so that I can use it horizontally. I can also re-label the Left & Right channels and just swap the cables in back.

To use this set up for a JB3, do I need a 1/8" to RCA cable? It seems to be that the JB3 should be used to monitor the levels. Nice, this looks like a viable solution. The last few shows have been difficult to monitor with just the UA5 LED. Last night, I had a CDR-burner patched from the UA5 and it was SOOOOO much easier adjusting and keeping an eye on the levels using the VU on the burner.

Added: I think I am going to order direct from www.guysgraphics.com. It is only $6 more than the ebay bidding price of $69. That is like a little insurance... I can return it if I don't like it.

dont bother w/ the face, you cannot see the numbers in the dark anyway.  Just know which is your left and which is your right.

hes right... the leds are all you see.  Look for the color to change to know where you are.  Yess it is mini jack from the jb3 aux, to the svu-2.  That's how I run it anyway!

JB3 is USB 1.1, so your transfers will be the same speed as before. If you want to speed them up get a ieee 1394 (firewire) card.
