For the one's expecting to be spoon fed, it can get chilly. It's a great group, with immense amounts of knowledge, and always willing to help out. Myself, I went from really basic stuff to building countless amps all from just reading these forums.....lots and lots of reading.

Default Cheers John,

I understand , my comment was slightly dry
It was the same way when i joined Lansing ... Now I'm just like the old timers Grumpy as - uck when someone shows up expecting us to do it for them .

I learn fast and think about my questions . I wanted to build speakers and went to the best -IMHO and now I want to build amps I have done the same thing ,Found the best You boys are the real deal ... The day I stop wanting to learn will be the day I don't hear the soil landing on the wood above me !

I'm sure everything I need is here for me once I learn how to navigate the site , but I am truly a novice ... I spend most of my time on wiki learning what things actually do .

I'll earn respect .....thats how it should be !

Rich

PS,and thank you . I'll consider your post my official welcome LOL

it shouldn't be.
It depends on the Newbie's attitude.

There are some traits that I will not accept and I tell those Members in clear terms. Others are more patient than me.
In my view, if you do your share of the work/research then you will get all the help and advice that you could ever need and more.

I've been collecting parts and the Chipamp sites Aleph boards to do a Mini Aleph and or an Aleph 30. I have boards to build both, and enough output boards to do Aleph 60.

I came along and began inquiring about my Pass F-5 build. I posted on both the F-5 thread, ( there are Aleph 30 threads a ways back) as well as the Peter Daniels F-5 board group buy thread.

Plenty of people lent a hand dumming things down so I could get my mind around the project. I've gotten responses to questions from Nelson Pass to Zen Mod and many besides, all very helpful. I tried to do my reading first so as to not ask questions too often that had already been answered a million times, but it invariably happens when there's a learning curve.

I'll be watching this thread,

Being that this is a first build, I'd say have one extra of everything (PCB components); more of a convenience if something goes wrong initially. As far as percentages go, I'm pretty sure Andrew has a formula for that...he loves the maths
