BMU and miniBMU

Unread post by Stemcor1990 » Mon May 07, 2018 4:43 pm

My thoughts on the BMU have now been posted in the loans section.

When I collected my TSS from Muppet Labs, the Doc was developing / had developed the mini BMU. The mini looks like the answer for me as it’s smaller (I can hide it away) but need a version with a 6 gang distribution block so that I can run both analogue and digital sources. I also know that a BMU is (sadly) not going to stop my power amp from humming.

Doc, is this a workable request or are 6 sockets too much for a mini BMU ?

The number of sockets is not an issue. It is what is plugged into them. 4 or 6 seem to be the two reasonable options.

Will there be a price difference between a six way and a four way mini BMU ?

No they are as cheap as hell at ebay, a lot cheaper than the sockets I use on the large BMU, and it is simple well made ones I like - no fuses - no LEDs - no filters. Because it is a standard type mains block you could terminate the wire with what ever you want as there are obviously some daft audiophile ones, fitted just like fitting a new plug.

Or if you want to select an ebay one on ordering I will order it for you and hard wire it, if it is one of the expensive ones then I will have to charge the difference to a standard one.

Sorry to keep asking daft questions but do you have standard mains in mains block out lengths or could I for example order it so that they are say 1 metre or .5 metre long?

Ask for what you want and I will tailor it on the unit. It has hard wired flying lead in and hard wired flying lead out. I can put what is needed on either end.

I presume the payment I just got at ebay was from you. So as to keep everything in front of me so I don't forget please do a new thread in NVA Orders giving details of what you want.
