Definitely don't want to wait 6 more weeks before starting! I have everything needed to start except the kit. Willing to pay for the shipping for the Fukujima.

For me it would NOT be like "putting together everything over a weekend and enjoy for years" thing. I would be more like, build a simplest version and followed by repetitive cycles of "upgrade power - tweak- test - listen" over many months. Realistically I suspect this would be the case for many who are aiming for V3. Note that there are not many examples of V2s made yet, let alone V3. Replacing Panasonic to Fukusima would be an a few-minutes-stop to stretch leg on a long winding road trip

OK, I am working out the details and realized I am not clear on this point. I checked the spreadsheet and have marked yes for a TeaBag main board, I know I have not paid for one and only the PSU board is included. My question is; should I contact TeaBag regarding a main board? Or by adding it to the spreadsheet I have already "ordered" one.

He is sending the main boards to me. I will collect payment for them when the kits ship out. I will start assembling the ktis this week, waiting only on Fukushima, Jfets, and boards. All else is here.

Any updates on when things will start shipping? I just want to make sure I coordinate my transformer buy (still waiting for the store to release the F5T boards )

All components are here, with the exception of the Fukushima's. THey are scheduled to ship on the 10th. Whether this date holds or not is in question. There is the possiblity of a bg hiccup for some. Antek's plat burnt down and getting transformers just got more expensive. THis will not affect me, but I thought I would let folks know. I expect the boards from TeaBag shortly. Hope it all cranks up very soon.

Unfortunately no inexpensive alternatives. Piltron cost 3-4 times as much.

Plitron group buy? Just a thought.
