Default Creating a thread index in the first post

Apparently opc could create an index into some of the more salient posts in the thread, post it, and the mods would then be willing to make a link back to the first post. An index would probably help folks new to the thread find stuff fast(er). The O2 thread could use an index too!

See: retroactively editing an index in post #1

@agdr That is a great solution but how do we get excited noobs to read it?

The larger issue is one that faces every successful organization, i.e. delegation! With that in mind I nominate agdr for the post of secretary general, reporting to qusp (ceo) and opc (resident mad genius).

ideally the headphone amp as this is of particular interest.

if there are pcb's for either left could someone let me know how, when, where and how much?

cheers

rup
Hey rup, sorry man, its just we get someone coming in asking the exact same question every other day, so its answered numerous times if you care to look briefly first before asking. its a common thing across the forum and i guess i just dont understand it so it frustrates me, myself i tend to read the beginning, as much of the thread or at least the last few pages and a quick search before posing a common question like that.

also, i answered your question already before my rant, only the Balanced input-SE output PCB only is left of the headamps, no kits left. the new one its looking like only pcbs will be available from the start and tbh i hope thats the case, because if people push kits; Owen being the type of guy he is will do it, but tbh i think he deserves a break now given the work hes put in for the community this year. youde have to have some pretty specific needs to build the new amp as a headphone amp, the thing puts out nearly 20W and it wont be cheap, needs a balanced source and for 2 channels youre looking at nearly 500usd before chassis, connectors etc. while its a compact speaker amp, its not a compact headphone amp.

in the other thread you mentioned for example, the thread was only 2 pages old with the availability and price mentioned clearly in the first post, before someone asked whether pcbs or kits were available and how much on the second page....

call me a cynic, but although that would be cool, thats a lot of work at this stage by itself and tbh given what ive seen of humanity and forum life, we would still get someone every day or 2 asking the same questions without reading. people might skim the first page and the last page before asking these questions normally and that seems to be too generous in many cases.

many just dont think about it and gather thats just what you do, but some are just lazy and would rather someone else take the time to answer several questions than spend the time to find out themselves. in the time asked of someone to answer a request like that, a simple search of the thread would reveal the answer, i guess the inference i take from some of these requests is that their time is more valuable. not aiming that at you rup, you seem like the former example.

Wolfsin and qusp: good points about getting people to even read that first post! At least if there were a current index somewhere noobies could just be directed to that first. I see a lot of specific troubleshooting questions popping up again and again over on the O2 thread, like related to the gain switch needing the leg cut off. If there was an index it might be easier for folks to scan through and see if anything matches there issue. Just a thought!

For everyone's benefit it might be worth mentioning these two pages as a good source of truth:

- GB wiki. This is slightly out of date on board counts I believe but got some good background info for those new to the project.
- Build wiki The greatest font of knowledge if you are lucky enough to get to build your chosen variant of The Wire

As already noted, getting people to these pages is the main part of the challenge.

I have 3 bal-se The Wire pcbs in my hands!

Having seen what I am pretty certain were last gen bal wires last week when visiting qusp, I am staggered, intimidated and excited by the now even more compacted layout of these boards!

I don't think we can thank you enough opc!

awesome!! that should mean i'll have mine tomorrow with any luck. yeah mine are last gen, the new ones he moved part of the input stage to the underside and its slightly narrower. the 2nd gen removed the onboard XLR connector positions so freed up some space.

so we can maybe put your bal-se up against my bal-bal when you come visit next. i'm so keen to get this hooked up to the portable sabre so i can finalise the CNC chassis and draw a line under the project

haha Wolfsin; qusp for CEO, i only just saw that
