Unfortunatele IVL Technologies, the engineering company behind Electrix, decided in June 2002 to discontinue the Electrix brand. BTW: IVL still is very present in the music electronics business. They did (and do) tremendious work for Digitech, TC-Helicon and others. The brand Electrix was revived in 2013 (see www.electrixpro.com), but they no longer support the legacy products. Today Electrix produces controllers for DAWs. I assume the brand was sold and has nothing to do with IVL anylonger.
CF-Cards for the Electrix Repeater
The repeater can record to internal memory and to CF-cards (Compact Flash Cards). However it requires some special CF cards which allow direct recording while playing back. These CF cards are equipped with a special integrated circuit for the memory access: an Hitachi SAH05. Electrix mentioned on their site cards from Simple Technology (sizes: 128MB+) and SanDisk. But be warned: this means only some dedicated partnumber, not every "SanDisk". Unfortunately the PDF with the CFC.listing is not available on web.archive.org.
So I put some efforts in the search for the right cards and could collect a list of suitable cards from the brand "Pretec":
Size Type Price ---------------------------------------------- 32MB CFH032-CP $38.10 32MB CFH032EH5 $38.10 32MB CFH032-HR $56.25 32MB RCFH032EH5H $56.25 64MB CFH064-CP $41.58 64MB CFH064EH6 $41.58 64MB CFH064-HR $60.58 64MB RCFH064EH6H $60.58 128MB CFH128-CP $53.65 128MB CFH128EH6 $53.65 128MB CFH128-HR $75.68 128MB RCFH128EH6H $75.68 256MB CFH256-CP $89.65 256MB CFH256EH6 $89.65 256MB CFH256-HR $120.68 256MB RCFH256EH6H $120.68 512MB CFH512-CP $178.55 512MB CFH512EHG $178.55 512MB CFH512-HR $231.80 512MB RCFH512EHGH $231.80The prices are from a pricelist at https://itsupplyhouse.com/ (No, I do NOT sell those cards), they are meant as orientation.
The difference between CFH and RCFH is Commercial standard and Industry Standard, ...CP means plastic housing, ...HR means metal housing. So for the normal musicians use the CFH..-CP should be fine.
Add on notice: The info above is from 2016. Meanwhile (08/2018) I bought various CFH...-CP and they work like charm in the Repeater.
