No, and I haven't ordered it, which obviously is a good thing. Thanks

Yes it is.
There are some things that are easy to research.
With Asian suppliers the first place to go is the ' Negative Feedback ' section where all your questions are answered.

I just checked ' Polida ' and his feedback then found 11 references to ' FAKE '
just on the first page.
There'll be more.

It's very hard to spot these things sometimes and I too have fallen for it.
I remember buying some Black Gates a few years back from one of these Asian cheats and when they arrived I just knew I'd been done.
On reflection they were just too cheap but back then I was just over eager.

Now if I see something interesting I go to the negative feedback pages - it tells you everything about the supplier and can be very funny too if you just need to have a laugh

What you see is NOT what you get !!


I did a test purchase so I know.

I actually have a TDA1541A in my watch list that's about twice the price from a seller with no negative feedback about fakes, actually 99,8% pos feedback.
Just thought I'd check the cheaper one out.

How about the Valab 1ppm 11.2896 TCXO for this board?
It's rather cheap, any better ones that are about that price?

Was looking around for a better USB to coax than the one I've got...
Is the Teralink - X2 Native 24/96 a good option or are there better ones for about that price?

I've got some time to look for the best options as I'll gather parts bit by bit as I can afford to.

Having read through the real/fake TDA1541 thread I'm at loss as how to be sure to get a genuine TDA1541A.
