hmm space for SEN IV? maybe JUST, the IV itself is quite small, though needs to take AVCC/2 for bias. but the many batteries (8 x 9v, or many more smaller) plus charging arrangements, I feel it would take a pretty clean looking build and make it cluttered, but yes there probably is room. its Patrick's Jfet IV needs 4 x 18v+ floating power supplies

Hi, could AKD16 and 18 be controller with Arduino via I2C, like Hifiduino and BII? Could you supply assembled AKD16 boards? thanks

Fully assembled ones would have to wait for a while until I get versions with IV and other functions integrated so that all models could share the same stencil and setup costs ~$400 (automatic assy in a fab house). Manual assembly can be a pain especially doing it over and over again with all the small parts.

Default Web Pricing

Hi Folks,

As you have noticed, all web prices are in USD and orders processed by PayPal. Their low fee services and security have made it attractive for DIYers. However, recent changes to their policies have seen them steadily increasing fees and now with cross border fees. So far I have been absorbing all the fees to make it easier for you all but it is getting difficult keep on doing it. They have also started to dig into exchanges rates as well. I found today PayPal 1 USD = 0.93 Australian (AUD) when in actual fact the AUD is much stronger at 1.04 USD! Hope this is not an error.
Anyway, I will be changing all web prices to AUD over the next few days and you may have to work out the amount in your own currencies. I may continue to absorb the fees for a while. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Acko,
their exchange rate was always exuberant. On the sending side, buyer have option to select the exchange rate - paypal or the one from your bank, the one you are using the card from. I always selected that option. Do not know how is on the seller or money recipient side, but in your case that would not matter any more. It was always funny to me when you select your bank rate, paypal will come up with warnings that you might be paying more, hahaha.

acko, I dont know that you have made a mistake with writing that out, or not, no doubt they have been taking 2 or 3 slices of the pie lately and have been expensive for ages, I eat the PP fees too, I think its actually a condition....

especially with the AUD being so strong the conversions have been really bad, then they get the fees too and then if you are drawing from a bank you will often get a fee for the transaction, but your math above is a bit confusing to me.

is 1USD = 0.93AUD that translates to 1AUD = 1.0752... better than 1.04

thanks for the tip on the interstate fees! wth! why? whats the bloody excuse for that? it costs them nothing and there is no interstate tax
