Default Questions before getting parts for the O2 Amp

1. Have any experienced builders encountered problems that I should be aware of?
2. How much will it cost to order the PCB and complete enclosure kit in Canada?
3. Has anyone suggested using pots for the switchable gain yet?

1. No, not many people have them yet, and none have mentioned any problems.
2. If you get in on the group buy(better hurry), about $5 for the board, and about $75 for the rest of the parts including shipping..
(not including a machined front panel, that will add another $17, plus shipping , unless there is a GB for them too)
3. Why bother? You already have a volume control, I don't see the point in having that fine grained control over the gain of the amp..

1. Sounds good, thanks
2. I will get on that right away. Does the machined panel come with the full enclosure(I'm assuming that's not included with the rest of the parts)?
3. Was just curious about it, not important to me anyways lol

No, you have to buy the machined panel separately (either yourself or via a possible GroupbBuy, the idea is being bounced around at the moment). the enclosure just comes with blank panels.
