Sorry, I now found that it has all been discussed before: how to get Pass amp kits.... Sorry for polluting your thread, which I think is excellent btw.

Sorry, when I go to the site its there, and the schemos are there for the indiviual amps, but when you click on the owner's manual (also available on the Passlabs site) or the service manual,( which either isnt available on Passlabs.com, or I havent found it yet) the link goes nowhere, or at least that's what's happening when I go there.

Thanks for the project. Will this thread show all the board patterns needed and or a diagram showing which part goes where on the board?

thanks again for taking on this project.

I've not had the graceful tones of Nelson in my quarter yet so I coudn't say.

As Nelson is quite happy for his designs to be used in the DIY quarter, I can't see him complaining too loudly even if someone is exploiting his ideas to their own gain. The KK PCBs are horrendously expensive compared with the TRUE DIY option.

Mine cost me 25.00 as opposed to over 100 from KK-PCB.

Please read the thread from the beginning. The links to all the PCB patterns and component stuffing guides have already been discussed. If you are having problems with the links please e-mail me at Andy815408@talktalk.net and I will send them to you personally.

Please note, as discussed, that I have made a few changes to the original PCB layout.

You build a very beautiful amplifier here Andy!
And yeah, me too I was building based on this my first NP amplifier.
A million are thanks because of this for Nelson.
And I may say thank you very much Mark Finnis, who is showed me, that it is possible to prepare this amplifier homemade:
Mark Finnis' Pass Amplifiers
(Hey Mark, I hope so your Tesla Coils did not strike you dead!)

Wacky

Does KK PCB have the support of Nelson. They do seem over priced.
I wonder how KK PCB would feel if someone were to copy there pcb layout and sell it at a third of the price.
I think it would be a little bit hypocritical of them if they were to complain.

tanh1973, check the link i've posted earlier, especially the last couple of posts. The master gave his blessings.
Thr pcb's are still expensive methinks, but the price is strongly linked to the number of boards ordered...

I didn't like the layout or the cost of the KK-PCBs. Here are the layouts from Mark Finnis.
As previously discussed, I modified the main boards for my build, that layout is already in this thread.

These are the ORIGINAL Mark Finnis boards.
