Documents from Rolando

Recommended Posts

I've started this thread to chart progress on making a small blizzard of documents available.  They are from Rolando (roguico).  He has kindly made them available.  They are primarily Lightstar and Carver pro material.  So far we haven't found any Lightstar schematics - but we (thanks to Zumbini) are looking.  There is some fascinating promotional material and several original Lightstar service bulletins.
 
Please give Rolando a big round of applause.  He went to considerable effort to make these available.
 
Teaser -- he may even have more!

Not yet Wayne and that's my fault. I'd planned to finish cataloging the digital files in a few days but life got in the way. Hoping to get back to the task soon.

Thanks Dom!

I am about 2/3 of the way through reviewing Rolando's files and documenting them in a spreadsheet.
I know y'all are chomping at the bit to see the list so here's what I have so far:

I'm working on the Sunfire documents now. Mostly brochures, reviews and spec sheets so far.
However, I peeked in the Sunfire Service folders and found some goodies:
schematics for Cinema Grand 17" 2 and 7 channel amps
schematics for a receiver
schematics for the amp and receiver downconverter circuits
schematics for the Super Junior sub

Wow. That's an awesome amount of info. being added to the site by the Great Zumbini! Thanks for being so selfless and giving your time to the site, so others may benefit. Your pics and illustrations are truly worth 1000 words and play a huge part in making CS "the place to be". Thank you Dom.. I have learned a lot from your post, and its an honor to call you friend.. Thanks again to Rolando.
