I have not seen the store boards, but my understanding vwas that they were modular. If so, easy peasy.

Hi,

I will take T-HA caps. This is my first venture into group-buys; and I am hoping that
at some time
a). I will know how much I owe?
b). I will know which components I am missing to get? Right now I know I have to get the boards and the case from the diyaudio store and the tranny from somewhere else. Is it safe to assume that this group-buy will get me everything else I need?

Add your prefernce to the list. It may not work out, bu twill give me a guage. If desired I can include things like RCA's, bindin gpost, iec filter, switch,bu tit was not planned this way as folks often like options in these areas that do not blend well in a GB.

Here are the options, fellas.
Panasonic T-HA 63V 15,000uF - $8/piece 3000Hrs@ 105C - 5.66A Ripple, @60C - 12.5A Ripple

Panasonic T-UP 50V 22,000uF - $6/piece 3000Hrs@ 85C - 7.57A Ripple, @60C - 10.5A Ripple

You either have to take a hit on the uF front to get longer lasting tougher caps or save money and get lower taed caps, longevity wise. I personally have no problem with either and will make a decision by the end of the weekend based on either the response or lack thereof. I think T-UP is sounding better, IMO.
We will be using Vishay RS power resiistors for the R in CRC. In comparison to Mills, they
have the same specs, exact value(we only need one, vs. two for the Mills), and are cheaper to boot.
I will change my mind on this, but it will take overwhelming support. PLease consider that the Mills options is 4X more expensive and I just don't hink you are going to get that return in the form of significantly different sound.

Decisions will be made Sunday on final parts type and orders placed Monday to get the ball rolling.

I'm good with what ever choice you end up making. I've used both, no problem to me. Same with resistors, I'm sure the Vishay is a quality part.

Signing up in thread is good. Sunday night, a post will go out with final pricing. Monday, parts will be ordered and I will start collecting soon after.
