Default Weeeeeeee Confetttttiiiiiii For All!!!!!!

YAAAAA got mine too again, you guys are the sh!t! We each owe Uriah and Peter a beer or 12

I love all the notes on the PCB...Russ' doing I assume? Any reason not to socket the LM318? Could someone explain the 2 ground planes? And why one of the big 'lytics + side is tied to the same place as the - of the other big 'lytic? I know I should read the original thread, but it's SOOOOO long. Anyone know where to find a semi-detailed circuit explanation (in english) without having to read all 120+ pages?

And you guys really outdid yourselves with the printed tape part labels & heat sealed packaging ...did you already have equipment to do that?

Pink,
As another guy posted we should move these type questions to the SOOOOOO long thread.
The board is all Russ' doing. The lytics tie +and- to make a ground because, technically, you dont earth this board. You just take the secondaries and tie them together in the middle which cancels out their voltage on those ends making 0V and then that 0V plugs in where the +and- of the lytics are. The 'second' ground is connected to the first with a 1R resistor making is still kinda ground but I suppose that keeps the signals from wanting to mix with the noise from the power ground. Make sense?
I personally have one channel that works perfectly and one that doesnt. Perfectly is a kit channel and not perfectly is the prototype. Scary huh? Anyway the prototype probably has a problem cuz there is no soldermask. I have to actually ground it to earth to get it to stop humming and it has issues with capacitance on my speaker wires. The other one, the kit one, has no problems.
Go ahead and socket it. No reason why not. I mean what if you zap your opamp some day with some ESD? Might be nice to have that socket.
Uriah

Pink-

"Any reason not to socket the LM318? "


Because the circuit was designed for the 318 and sockets are usually intended for trying other pin compatible opamps or in "risky" circuits.

Mauro's schematic and Russ' PCB are ROCK solid and if the PCB is assembled correctly the chip will last a LONG time and not give you ANY issues.

So I didn't want to add the extra potential points of failure.

It wouldn't hurt, but there is no reason to.

Default Nylon bushing: how to drill your holes

For those preparing heatsinks it may be good to know that exact sizing of the nylon bushing for the insulation on the chip. It is part 3102 in this table: http://www.keyelco.com/pdfs/M55p122.pdf

Note in particular that the nylon neck is longer than the chip is thick, i.e., it sticks out and some of it needs to be sunk into the heatsink.

1/2" unibit comes in VERY handy.

Default color coded BOM

Attached is the BOM color coded according to the bags. Yellow is the capacitor bag (everything small is labeled EXCEPT for the 12 220nF bypass caps [small yellow boxes] which correspond to C7/17/18/19/20/21). Blue is for the resistor bag (everything labeled except for the big cement 0R47). The "silicon" bag is highlighted in pink here. Note that the nylon bushings are in that bag loose. So when you open the bag, be sure not to have those little buggers roll off under the couch...

Is he still stuffing them with confetti?

Yes it was packed extremely well, and the confetti did its job!

Thanks to all beginning with Mauro!!

My package was posted on the 4th and arrived here in France to-day on my birthday. You could not have done better.

Now the fun begins putting it together.

BYE
Tony
