Me too - but what to do?

Many parts have to be bought (again) which is definitely no reason why there was a group buy at first place. I have not checked all my parts yet, but the missing ones I have already listed dropped my mood significantly. Tomorrow I have to count and sort all parts and figure out how to proceed.

The lower one is a OPA2134 which is for sure genuine (TI sample), the upper one is from the GB. To me, this looks rather suspicious as the BB logo isn't even close to what it should be.
mine (that I used in Paradise R1) look like the upper part, and are genuinge parts (I think I bought them at Farnell). Work like a charm - not that I listen much to R1 these days ;-)

Sorry to hear that.... I did receive the three big parcels from Birger, full with plastic bags that contained the parts for one stereo set, so it was quite easy for me - just put as many bags in the parcel as needed. Obviously I didnt check the content of each bag.....

Of course not, Alfred. For sure you're not the one to blame.
We have checked about 10 parts bags so far, and not even one contains exactly what it should.

Hi Birger,
thank you for your reply.
First: We all want to handle this in a calm and professional way, not reason to get excited or even mad. So let's get this sorted out.

Regarding Panasonic FR: Those blue Caps you sent (6800 and 4700 F) - are those Panasonic FR?
I have no idea, there's no manufacturer marking on it, and I have never seen a Panasonic cap without "Panasonic" written on it, but perhaps they don't do it anymore. You tell me.

Sending me a J109 is fine, I'll PM you my address. What about the four wrong trim pots?

Hi Holger,

i at least have no reason to doubt they are Panasonic FR. The last group buy i did run for some XOno-Clones also did include Panasonic FR. Apart from the plastic bags the caps came in, there has been no sign of Panasonic written anywhere onto the caps. BTW, in one bag from Birger i got FM instead of FR (most probably suppliers ran out of stock?) and they don't carry a panasonic mark on them either. So it seems panasonic definitely changed their way of marking caps.

Just to calm everyone down. I've seen many Panasonic electrolytic caps from numerous reputable suppliers, none with Panasonic on them. They are usually only marked with the series (NHG, FC, FM or in this case FR). The one's from the group buy measures just like FM's. See attached images.
