Dr Huw's assessment of the DI modifications:

The direct outs are electronic: a board has been added using a NE5534 duel op-amp configured as a balanced output. Audio is taken from pin 17 (fader) this is after the decoupling cap connected to the output of IC3 (pin 6) this is also the the point where the PFL switch is connected. It is probably the best place to add an output (although adding a transformer directly to this point would be a mistake as it would load IC 3 and change the characteristics of the channel). I would add the transformer after a buffer/driver similar to the circuit already added although I would use a Neve module BA440 or BA640 clone to drive a Carnhill or Sowter transformer (there would not be room to fit 8 Marinair transformers) and keep things as Neve and period correct as possible!
