I would not say lazy. I find compiling BOM very tedious and time consuming. Here is one I have - unverified . Use it as a starting point and check. Also, It is for the Mezermize PCB from the DIYAudio store.

Take Stranded wire for instance, i have absolutely no idea where to start in this list for appropriate wire for F5 or B1
Buy stranded online from RS Components

18 awg stranded hookup wire is what I used mostly except.16 awg stranded hookup wire PSU connections. Get a bunch of different colors and create your own color standard. There is a vendor on here Apexjr that sells Teflon hookup wire.

I use insulated 0.6mm diameter solid core copper.
It would be cheaper to use the insulated ~0.5mm diameter cores from CAT5, but it is a lot of work to separate and straighten.

If you require ready made twisted pairs then CAT5 is worth the effort to strip off the outer cover.

For signal wiring inside the chassis, thinner is better.

Andrew's suggestion of CAT5 is spot on - it's a bit of work, but very worth it.

Lovely! your suggestions most helpful, i heard some time ago Ethernet cable was a good choice for small signal audio so shall use that for the runs from
4x RCA > Rotary Switch > B1

the 16-18awg wire sounds good for higher power connections, also in the past have just used mains wire.

So the Axon 10uF caps Nelson uses in his B1 (as far as I saw in the pictures of the open case) have not a very good recommendation in the capacitor test at

Humble Homemade Hifi

I tried them and they do a special sound, I like them very much! Concurrents were Clarity Cap ESA, Obbligato old ones, Cornel Dubilier KP and some other.

Well chosen Nelson!

Default B1 power supply

Hi 6L6,
Peter Daniel does not have any universal power supply boards now. Will the PassDIY universal power supply work in this build? Thanks!

Steve
