VID MIX Assembly Instructions

Thank you for purchasing the Sound Study VID MIX!

ATTN: Please follow the BOM and these instructions. Don’t populate from the PCB silkscreen or these instruction pictures alone. Our components may look different from the pictures, so please look over your parts and check the codes first.

DIODES

Take the four diodes and place them into the PCB as shown below. Diodes are polarized, so make sure you align the black stripe on the diode with the white stripe on the PCB. Carefully turn over and solder then trim lead excess.

IC SOCKETS

Place the IC sockets into the PCB by aligning the notch on the sockets with the sockets on the PCB silkscreen. Carefully turn over and solder in place.

ELECTROLYTIC CAPACITORS

Place the electrolytic capacitors into the PCB by placing the longer lead into the pad that has a “+” next to it. Turn over to solder and clip.

RCA JACKS

First secure the RCA jacks over the panel and bend over the ground tabs on the RCA jacks as shown below. You ocan then take the panel and put on the control board and tighten down the 3.5mm jack. You can then add the resistor clippings to the RCA jack tabs as shown below and solder them to the PCB. Clip excess leads.
