sorry mate, guess you havent been around much lately. didnt mean anything by it. yeah its a bitch to get one, basically involves staying up if you are in a different timezone, with your finger on the buy button constantly refreshing the sales page until there is the option to buy. does it say when the next run is? its not uncommon for them to sell out within a couple of minutes

seasons greetings to you too, days almost over here and i'm a bit hung over :S

haha yeah you arent kidding..ouch

get an ackodac, its available now and IMO is a much better option anyway. it is based on the ES9012, which is the 2 channel version of the dac in the buffalo II (same exact spec, its basically the same chip, just the channels are combined internally, which to me makes more sense for stereo output anyway). this board was built with it in mind as well, there are mounting positions for it too, opc caved to a very vocal minority

ermm I already included a link in the post the word ackodac is a link. even if you could get the buffalo I would be recommending it, its a bit pricier as the power supply is much more involved, but if you look at the link you will see it has some pretty serious advantages over the TP unit; including a highly developed MCU with the option of wireless remote control by an ipad or similar. there are a few ways to keep the price down from buying everything there if its a bit rich, you dont need to have a fully discrete regulator for every supply pin and you can use whatever DC supply you like to feed the regs

WRT Cricket, nah, not really very Aussie there, bores the hell out of me. on occasion I have been known to watch a one dayer, but test cricket is waaaay too drawn out for something that can end in a draw.

no problems, indeed it does look and sound great, not as well known as the buffalo II of course, but I get the feeling thats about to change considering the imminent release of the full blown 8 channel ES9018 version with the same amount of control. also a well integrated product line.

anyway back to the build thread, sorry for the OT chaps, I got a bit excited with my new toy. so I now have pretty much everything I need to get matching on the mosfets, heatsinks are here for that (and the IV ones are due finished at the end of this coming week) so once family stuff is out of the way this weekend i'll get on it. have pretty much built up the circuit to allow me to be testing 4 devices at once and a switch to switch my DMM leads between the test points. I also have some semisouth power Jfets on the way that I think I might try out for a laugh as well

I like to mix it up a bit as I think the bots are onto this trick

no problem on the caps Q, didnt mean to sound terse, no need to appologize, i'm a grumpy grumpy man and yeah this Q must have been asked and answered at least 10 times already so I guess I was short.
Do you have the heatsink?

no, I have my heatsinks for the matching rig, but not the D1. so i'll get going on that this week sometime. hes not doing the D1 sinks till the end of this week, so i'll have them sometime next week. if I had the sinks you would know about it. also there is only one shipment being made right? unless you want to pay for separate shipping for the heatsink and the mosfets
