Thumbs up Group Buy #2 - FETZILLA

Folks,

I have started a second thread for FetZilla #2 because:

#1 I wish to consolidate ALL orders for GB #2 into a dedicated thread, including new orders presently within the original FetZilla thread;
#2 I want to accumulate orders for 50 pcbs, that is, at most 25 orders, before I actually pay manufacturing and shipping costs for 100 more pcbs (it's a largish outlay and I don't wish to commit until I know I can sell 'em all), and
#3 I prefer to confine user/builder reviews of the FetZilla in the original thread for all to read in one place without distraction from the orders messages.

I don't want orders via email; please put them here. I will update every couple of days, and make a long list. Again, as before, please do NOT pay until I'm actually ready to ship.

There were difficulties with the last GB arising from the connection between the name of the individual, the shipping name, and the forum name. When all three were different this caused some angst, I can tell you. Ultimately, when you pay, your forum name MUST be included so I can make this very important connection!! This way the connection appears ONLY on the paypal notification and so remains secure.

Insurance is an issue. In any GB there will always be one or two that do not get through. After experience with GB #1, I have decided to impose a $3 insurance fee on all orders, regardless of destination. This is for the benefit of all concerned; it's no fun if it doesn't get through, and it's no fun for me having to repeat my original despatch and pay shipping, materials and labor a second time.

Fire away, this is one helluva amp, very good value for money!

PRICES:

Two boards only $AUD58
Two boards with fitted mosfet VAS and two jfet 2SK170 GR and two mosfet DN2530 $AUD68

If you want four boards, with parts or without, simply double the above prices to $AUD116 and $AUD136 respectively. These prices include shipping and insurance to any part of the world.

You'll note the Oz dollar has dropped about six cents since two weeks back, no bad thing. I've raised the purchase prices by $5 simply because shipping is rather more expensive than I'd originally planned.

There have been numerous small additions to the documentation and the reviews are now rolling in and speak for themselves. Recommended for late night listening over a malt whisky.....

Cheers,

Hugh
