Red Help

I am assembling the Controller Board and cannot tell where the identified pin for RN41 goes. Does the identified pin on the first one go next to where RN41 is printed on the board? Does the identified pin for the second one go next the the first one or at the opposite end?  ](*,)

Hi Joe,

I lined both of those with Pin 1(has a dot or star) from left to right. Left being towards C45.

Hope that helps,

The two RN41 components are symmetrical, so it doesn't matter which way the dots on either component point. However, I did what John suggested as well.

The other resistor networks must be oriented correctly.

RN41 replacement.  Does anyone know the correct replacement part for Red PCB 10.5 RN41?

Would  2 x Bourns 4606X-102-102LF (Mouser 652-4606X-2LF-1K ) be the correct replacement?

or could I use 1 x Bourns 4612X-102-102LF (Mouser 652-4612X-2LF-1K )

Thanks in advance!...

Yep, rather important network, coupling channel signals to processing.
Your choice. 2 six pins (4606) or one 12 pin (4612).  Many production runs used 2 six pin (4606). As much as there are three possible channels on both H and E inputs, a 4606 rather separates the two amplifier boards, and perhaps a few cents difference in production, and / or availability of 4612 vrs 4606 during production. I personally think I'd opt for the 4612 ... but it won't make a quantum's difference in operation. I wouldn't attempt to use any form of discrete components, because of added capacitance, etc potentially affecting the time response, though virtually all of the filtering is done, in red, on the amplifier boards.

Rgr.  Thanks for the info!!  Just wanted to make sure as I was having a little trouble decoding the schematics form the board files I was sent me.  Attempting to get a BOM together or parts available from US suppliers for a build.
