    Default who would build me a Geddon clone ?

    hi,
    ive spent most of the day reading up about this subject and although there is loads of info on the subject i simply dont understand circuit diagrams,as this is a dangerous area to go in blind i thought perhaps one of you guys more experienced could advise/build it for me??

    its for a rock elite 2 and id like it to be outside in its own case,like say a norton airpower psu.

    i would guess so,ive read about upgrading the psu on lp12's or other turntables that share the same motor etc.
    i believe my rock uses this motor,will have to check.
    i can make the box for it to go in if thats easier. its all the diagrams and trnsformer info just goes over my head.
    also is the diy norton airpower a better option? http://norton-tech.co.uk/AirPower/APKit.htm

    i did have one briefly for my lp12 a while back but i never got it to work (it was bought as not working) it was the single huge transformer version which was made to order.

    If you supply the box and drill all the holes etc that would make it lots cheaper for you yes! Otherwise 2/3rds of the labour you are paying for would be for me to mark out, cut, file and drill etc....

    The Norton looks dafter than the geddon to me....

    No comment. People seem to like them. Yes I can build you a geddon.

    Not going for a geddon now then? I see you're discussing other options over on pfm.... A sine wave PSU is what I would recommend, as others are saying over there....

    as i keep having to explain to people i dont understand electronics,i thought as there are so many experts on the web id be swamped with help and advice,after posting on 4 forums it seems i was wrong,one guy on pfm even asked me what i thought i should pay him!

    your comment about,or should i say no comment remark about the norton and geddon being daft kinda put me off.

    i was just looking for a better psu option than currenty whats fitted to my rock turntable,no one has given me any options or prices to date.

    perhaps i shouldn't bother?
