Hi....

This is a update on the Auricon_Sound users group:

http://movies.groups.../Auricon_Sound/

This user group is for folks interested in 16 mm Auricon cameras, amplifiers, or shooting optical sound.

1) We have moved a lot of original Auricon literature and schematics to high quality pdf files and posted them on line.

2) A test rig has been developed that you can use for testing or repairing your Auricon amps (NR as well as RA series amps).

3) A modern, solid state power supply has been developed so you never need to carry around heavy dry cells batteries.

4) A new, solid state amplifier that will drive a galvo in Auricon cameras is about 99% finished and is now moving to the breadboard stage.

We are a friendly group that enjoys the free exchange of information on Auricon equipment, as well as discussions on early optical sound in cinema. We have files, links, literature and photographs. But the best part are the people. Join us (free) if you have a interest in early optical sound, or Auricon equipment,

Polite conversation only please.

Hi-

If your group hasn't seen this already, it's an extensive photo-tour of the Bach-Auricon building as it was being demolished (i gather from the pix)



I don't know anything else about it, but it sure would have been interesting to rummage around like this photog was able! You have to wonder what happened to all of that stuff.
