Yamaha PM-700 and PM-1000


I inherited a Yamaha PM-700. I am wondering if it's of the same design as the PM-1000? Do you know if it is a smaller version (12 channels and not quite as many features) of the PM-1000 or is it a totally different (cheaper) design? Does it have the same transformers as the PM-1000? I read some place that the PM-1000 uses Jenson transformers but the PM-2000 did not. What is the best way to tell? Look at the number stamped on the tranny and call up Jenson? I have e-mailed Yamaha a couple times but they don't seem to have the time to reply (Ya I realize that the mixer is out of production, but still at least reply).

I am thinking about setting it up as a sidecar mixer. Currently four channels have noise problems so I will probably be looking into that more closely. I will also be looking into the possibility of op amp upgrading. Any thoughts on this would be great!

Did you ask Fletcher over in the guest moderator forum? IIRC, he has a modified PM 1000 he uses..

I did ask Fletcher. He had a few comments but not really that helpful overall. I am wondering if anyone else has information to share on it. Thanks for the post.
