Brian-

If understand correctly you will be doing a GB for the parts kits to go with the completed rev C brds.

Do you by chance have the parts for the kits?
If so can I order a set for the betas?

Thanks in advance,

Troy stgrab@yahoo.com

Well, I am doing a kit for the RevCs. I think the kits will have everything for all three versions.

I plan on getting the BOM and sourcing ready this weekend.

I talked to Russ about this, and think I will try to offer a kit to the beta testers, or maybe just the parts they are missing (I know some of you have some of the parts apready). It would be a good way to test out the parts selection before a large buy.

I'll post more info sometime this weekend (got a bunch of code to write by tomorrow).

Mauro Case is back!

My mate has done a great job putting this together, now I better get on with finishing it.

Sorry to be annoying, but for the people brand new around here. Can I get a little summary of what's going on?
It seems BrianGT (?) and Russ are offering kits on their own kickass amps, are these available internationally?
I'd be very interested, if I could get one here. But alas, being a poor student, low budget, how much do they cost roughly (as a kit or just PCB/Opamps)?
Cheers all,
--Nathan

P.S. Sorry if this is the wrong place for the post, wasn't sure where to put it

BrianDonegan != BrianGT

BrianGT sells some nice kits for chip amps through chipamp.com.

Russ and I are partnering for kits for a chip-based amp based on Mauro Penasa's designs (with his blessings of course). Russ if making boards and I am putting together kits.

If I had to guess, our stuff will be about $70 for pair of mono boards and a parts kit. This is just a guess at this point. Shoudl know more in the coming weeks.

This hobby is more for the cheap, not the poor. It would be hard to build one of these for less than 150.00 USD. That is using a cheap box and transformer to go with generic parts. If you already have some of the parts needed it might get built for less.
It is easy to end up with 200.00 - 250.00 in one. That should buy a big amp at the local consumer electronics store.
If sound quality is important though, it is 250.00 well spent. The sound quality is very good. Doubt if the local consumer electronics store sells anything that sounds as good.

i second panelhead. gainclones are not really cheap, but they are definitely relatively cheap.

oh, and if anything, "brian style" gainclone will be cheaper to build because of its much shorter part list.

Yes but as panelhead also said, its not really the(electronic) parts that are expensive. Well unless you go hog wild, or buy $800 wire and volume knobs

Actually to me the biggest investment is time, but really its fun-time so hey its well worth it.

Cheers!
Russ
