Another modification designed by Frank Oettle is the Vreg board.
The Vreg 5V board is a direct replacement for the standard 7805 voltage regulator. However, the following features are way beyond the specification of the ordinary 7805, making it highly preferable for use in performance-critical audio products (e.g. DCX-2496 and DEQ-2496).
- Ultra High Power Supply Ripple Rejection (PSRR) over the whole sonical frequency range. Typical 110 dB @ 10Hz to 20 kHz.
- Very low output voltage noise (18 µV).
- The Vreg 5V board has a maximal 260 mA output current without cooling.
The small size 10 x 20 mm (= TO-220) makes it an ideal drop in replacement.
Lower voltages e.g. 3.3V are on request.
A few remarks have to be made.
Modifying existing equipment such as the Behringer DCX2496 will void any original manufacturers warranty.
This kit is not difficult to build and install. If you have reasonable soldering skills and are willing to work accurately, you will have no problems to complete it. Yes, it is an all SMD project, but not to large.
Of course besides all the parts needed it comes with the printed version of the documentation made available by Frank.
Frank has generously decided to donate his payment to the Gumyoko montessori school in Ghana.
