of a pictorial record of the restoration of a Sync II in June 2005
6. Let the machine breathe. 1U vent fitted
7. Fit runner guides for the card racks. The original Sync II had no runners
and shorter racks.
The runners now accept the replacement
new-style 25-way CPU rack. This accepts more cards than the original rack and
allows us to upgrade to the latest processor and software.
8a. The CPU bin can be accessed easily for upgrade and service using the drive
runners and the rear can be accessed without removing the rear panels
9. The later style FM bin is slid in on its runners above the CPU rackThis
bin allows us to upgrade the system to the later FM stereo system should we wish
to. It also works with the original mono FM.
9a A rear view
of the two main racks showing the massive DC power cables.Synclaviers are built to very high specification and
fully spec'd can require substantial power. The Synclavier
philosophy is over-rate everything so that nothing is strained. The
discolouring of the rear is a normal production side effect and is not a result
of wear or repair.
next stage is to supply some power to the system for initial testing and diagnostics.
will update the pictures daily until the upgrade is complete.
