Just speculating here, but I'm guessing there aren't multiple completely independent circuits inside. Why have duplicative parts if switches/relays can make certain parts of the circuit pull double duty?
Not that I've seen the inside of the ADG either, but I kind of figured there was something similar going on inside the ADG as well. It would make sense to do so from the standpoint of cost and weight.
Yes, it makes sense from cost and weight. But then we aren’t talking about 4 different units. It becomes an approximation of what
The 4 units actually are. I’m fairly certain (please correct me
If I’m wrong, it’s been a while since I’ve opened these units) that none of them share the same in/out tranny’s, and the way the 2a and 3a achieve their release time is through the opto unit (t4b, t4c, etc).
Even a quick look on Sowter’s page shows different spec output transformers for the 2a and 3a...
Aren't we saying the same thing? At least I'm thinking we are.
Again, I'm speculating here, but I'm guessing that, unless there is an appreciable difference in transformer tone between some of the circuit designs, there are, at least in some cases, some duplicative uses of circuit and/or transformers.
Not that I would at all have a problem with two (or four) completely separate circuits. I just figured that cost saving measures would dictate some overlap of the circuits.
