Default Re: D-Command replacement

Recently, I replaced the faders on my blue D-Command 8ch main unit. I posted the parts # on this "fighting faders" thread.


Hope it could be useful for people who needed to replace their faders.

The main 8ch unit has all 3 whereas the fader exp. unit has Z107 and Z10B.

I have replaced Z10B on my fader exp. unit to resolve the "flashing LEDs" problem in the past. And I have recently replaced the Z107 on my main unit because the unit didn't power up. From my understanding, the PSUs are made in Taiwan.

Hope the parts # would help people who are in need of PSUs replacement.

This is sooo helpful, Thanks! I might just order all three to keep them on hand.

Street for a 24 fader M10 is $40k.

Minimum S6 price point is approx $22k for an 8 fader unit.

D Command 8 fader units went for $15k new if I'm not mistaken. Plus Avid gave me $4k for my Pro Control to entice me to buy the D Command. This combined with my discount from my dealer meant I paid about $10K for my D Command.

If they would have offered the S6M10 with deals like this, I would likely be an S6 owner.

Then again, taking in trades and the impacts this had on the balance sheet is apparently part of what got them into trouble with NASDAQ.
