Since it was already announced several times that it is out of production I think this news comes too late. That is the thing with sales; if the seller himself announces a new version or that the old one should die like in post 2027 the seller should not expect that any new customers will order that particular existing product. New = better -> you know what I mean.

I am sure if you would announce a new Mez version with wider double gold cladded tracks, 4 caps, TO220 diodes, Ko-On/Lightspeed volume potentiometer and in pink color as that is THE color for summer 2010 it would sell again and probably even more than the simple version that still is .. a simple version

We have posted that it can be done, before. For now Tea has some classic black Mez still for anyone needing a fully relay input switched DCB1. There was a Mez column on his Google sheet all along.

I think we are going to argue as it can be done but still there was said it was out of production and that the last ones were available. That alone is enough for public opinion.

But we are going from left to right in this discussion. It started with me thinking that the blue version will IMO be used for the supply part. Now you told a real "supply only" version will exist demand for the blue version will stabilize if I am assuming correctly. We wait and see.

I would have called it ''Pretty In Pink''. Take it or leave it.

I leave it except when it will be made for real! I could not care less about the color to be honest.

I suppose most have a problem with that Alps RK27 or they just love making those godawful wire nests otherwise I can't explain why people prefer a simple version (while choosing the non simple road for source selection/volume control with that same simple version)

Goodnight

Jean-paul, remember that this is a GB for a DC coupled preamp with excelent performace. If we wanted a PSU group buy, we would have done that, making a proper and optimized board for that purpose.
We have the versatility that it can be used too just as a PSU, but it is not the main idea.

Regarding the Mezmerize, is had less demand than Hypnotize in the last GB, so I can't see anything strange in not offering a multiple-input option. Some of us only use one source for audio, so no need to use a bigger board. And, as Salas said, there was a column in the spreadsheet for signing up for the Mez version, but people preferred the simpler approach. It's just a problem of lack of demand. Being only a bunch of customers, each board would have a very high price, leaving even less customers than before knowing the price.

I don't think Salas is against the multiple input version. But if there's no demand, what else can he do?

BTW, this regulator board looks impressive Salas
