I'd be interested.

I will have to see, being on the island like yourself, it may be unreasonable doing a GB, as i would have to most probably buy in from the US, just to export again . (Import Duty).

I'm not trying to discourage anyone from doing a group buy, but if you look at the parts that make up the bulk of the BOM cost (the chips), the quantity discount is not that great. The following are prices from digi-key for buying individual vs. 25:

PCM1794 goes from $16.64 to $14.98
AD1896 goes from $20 to $18
CS8416 goes from $9.80 to $8.71

FWIW, the only "deal" that I ever thought made sense for a group buy on this project (aside from the board, itself) is S22083:

Price Break ($)
1 9.20000
10 6.32500
25 4.60000
50 3.68000

Even that, by the time you take into account shipping, it doesn't make that much sense.

Indeed, having a look myself it is not worth it. The only way it would be worth it if you would kindly volunteer

This is one of the (unstated) reasons I don't sell kits. It saves you guys a little bit of time, but it would be a nightmare for me!

Unlikely, but if there's anyone from Calgary on the list you can email me and I can buy parts for both.
