Sorry, but I have to respect my own deadlines.... if I do exception once, I shall do exceptions all the time.
The problem, is with EU regulations I'm not sure that so much money transfers on my Paypal account will not start creating issues (it already does actually.. after reaching 1500 euros transfers, my account has been "restricted" until I clarify some of my personal info.... ) I don't want to reach the level where the french tax controllers will start to annoy me on my account transfers, ... last thing I want is to lose money for something that already took a lot of my time
What I propose from now on is to open a waiting list WITH NO GUARANTEE OF SUPPLY, until I clarify all this.
Just put your DIYAudio name in the thread, no PM required, no info to send me.. just create a waiting list.

I recieved mine, packing was good, the irony is that I have been in China for work, so has taken me a while to report back.
The quality looks good and with a nice case will be a valuable editon to my tool kit.
I have to now read all the instructions, and figure out if the transistors have to be mounted on a heat sink and isolated
Lazybutt thanks for the great effort to put these together for the forum and at such a great price

Yes the power transistors have to be mounted on a heatsink (the 6 in line on the side of the PCB). Most of them should be isolated (basically the ones with case connected to one of the pins! In doubt, better isolate all as heat is not critical
According to Locky_z, a piece of aluminum is enough. In the assembled version he uses a L-shaped piece of aluminum (12 x 4 x 4 cm, and thickness about 4~5 mm).

Go Mine today,
Packing was great, board needs a lot of cleaning and soldering is really bad, need to check whole board before applying power.
Hope it was tested before sending, this is a great great tool so here's keeping my fingers crossed.
Thanks guys for a huge effort, greatly apreciated.
