That thing is crazy!

Never seen a Bozak with the cue switch on the left side. Is this a standard model with a custom faceplate, or a totally custom model?

earlier model...


notice the larger plug in mic transformers...

it's interesting that the unit has xlr outs for the mains...

I wonder if it's really an earlier model with the mono cards,
or if the early faceplate was fitted to a stereo card unit...

Mistick Krewe is correct. This is most likely an early DL that would have had the Cue switch on the left side with a small selector knob as shown and should have mono channel cards like the 10-2 used to create the stereo channels if it is original inside. If you look close it is obvious where the rivets were that held the original RCA output jacks that have been replaced with XLR connectors. The face plate was obviously redone and the Bozak print on the logo is incorrect. Some early models used a glue on logo overtop the print that was also original on other early DL models that had the Cue switch on the right side. The print style and logo was never changed and the registered trademark always used by the original United States Bozak Company remained the same over the years. Even though all rights have been obtain by the new company from the UK for Bozak products the logo and print style is still owned and registered under a subsidiary company that remains in the United States. It may never get used again (due to legalities) since the UK company obtained all other Bozak rights. The original logo and print style most likely will remain owned by the people who purchased everything in 1979. From what I understand it is something they keep registered under another company subsidiary and refuse to give up and maybe why it is not on the new UK Bozak products. The original owners did lease the use of the Bozak name in the 1990s to and overseas company for 10 years. I am sure that has long since expired. On another note the company called Purple Audio who reissued a couple Urei components had that color face plate dipping & metal oxidation done for them back in the 1990s when they first started out in business.

Dino59 is also correct. When Bozak designed and introduced the D/DL series mixers there was a little over 3 years of mass confusion. The first in the series appeared as a D model with 10-2 components and a hand cut mother board using only 8 channels from the 10-2 mono/stereo mixer. The faceplate print on the mixer in this thread is that of a D and not the early DL as the model number is showing. Early model numbers would have been D designated for sure. However there are also some very early silver face DL models that actually had mono internal cards, external microphone transformers, no loop function, and 10-2 components. The run of the chassis serial numbers does not always reflect this but production stamp dates are usually in the correct time line. People think the assignment of the letter L was for Loop but it actually reflects several other updates. None the less this mixer is what it is and getting back to the original question of being worth $1000.00 dollars, I would say it is worth whatever someone would be willing to pay. It is as they say “in the eye of the beholder”.

Anodize your faceplate and let it engrave.

Nice job of bringing a mixer back to life by MainEssentials. I know that Buzzy Beck has a lot of the original faceplates and chassis and may have that D faceplate if you check with him. He has a lot of older inventory from the 1970s and may still have one of those plates. Several years ago he gave me an original silver DL plate and at that time he had a lot of other silver and black plates just sitting in boxes. He also had boxes of Bozak records and paper work from the 1970s – 1980s and he told me he did keep all the original faceplate and chassis films from the different outside vendors they used. You could also get someone to do a plate for you from scratch. There are companies out there that will do a single plate for around $150.00 but the quality of the plates varies from different sources. I have seen reproductions that are nice and others that are not so nice.
