DX Blame Group Buy
Carlos Mergulhao's DX Blame is one of the best sounding AMPs I have ever listened to.

You can refer to its history in the thread:

There are 2 versions of the DX Blame:

1 - the DX Blame ST - the "stable", officially aprroved version with an incomparably beautiful sound
2 - the DX Blame ES - the initial version, not approved by Carlos, since it is not stable under all conditions but playing with even more emotions

I was one of the first to build the DX Blame, drawing the PCB with MS Paint, and was so attracted by its sound that I asked METAL to layout
a PCB for the DX Blame in a professional manner and distribute the PCBs to our DIY friends.

This is the result:

A dream in red and gold that will support both the ST and the ES - Version of the DX Blame.
The size of the PCB is 114 x 148 mm.

My initial PCB - order was exhausted in a couple of days.
Since I haved received several inquiries concerning the availability of the DX Blame PCBs I will start a 2nd round group buy now.

The price for two PCBs is 28, packaging (foam coated DIN A5 - letter) and shipping (worldwide) included.
Payment will be done via PAYPAL to my e-mail address.

All boards will be shipped by airmail, with no tracking and no insurance and I cannot assume responsibility for lost packages.

The price stated above implies that more than 30 PCBs will be ordered.

I will also be able to provide you a speaker protection PCB:

for about 5 per PCB.

I am sorry METAL and I did not layout a PSU in the same design.
If there is a considerable demand for a PSU we will make it.

I will provide a BoM for both the DX BlameST and DX BlameES and will provide an assembly instruction guide.

I will keep the Forum's nicknames of those who are interested in this thread.

Finally an image of one of METAL's assembled PCBs:

Be sure: the DX Blame is an AMP you will keep for the rest of your life.

Count me in for 2 boards.

Two of these high quality boards, shipped for $35 USD is amazing.

I may not have any profit, HAGS. :headbash:
This is the law of DIY.

Best regards - Rudi
