Save them for another project... Nobody builds just one of these.

Or pay it forward and give them to somebody else building one who you can help after you build yours. That's the best thing.

How many extras could you possibly have? Four?

I buy tons of extras when I find a good deal. You never know when they're gonna stop making 'em. I wish I bought thousands of the Toshiba JFETs. I'd be able to retire early.

What are you going to start up a store there?

I bought enough for 2 stereo pairs, so 32 extras .

Some parts had a price break at 100-200 pieces. Some are surplus. Some are no longer made. I learned the lesson once when parts were discontinued. I want to be buildiing projects five years from now with the right parts and not substituting parts or scrounging for the few available parts left. Most people wanna buy only four parts when a new project comes out and are disappointed when they can't find them for $2.

To make 2 channels with 4 pr per ch requires 2 sets. You end up with one extra
Gain board in effect, but probably you could hand wire it up with one pair for your niece or grandkid.,.

4pr per channel is a monster amp!
Variac

So I will have to get two sets of the PCB's for my V3 build then? That will be 100$ just for the PCBs

Anyway, any idea when will the second run be available (my kits will be here any days now )?

I assure you the PCB's won't be close to the most expensive parts. By the time you build the power supply and get enough heatsinking!

We've decided to release the rest of the boards right away, which means about a week for them to be in stock...

You are right. Other parts cost more. I am thinking in relative terms. "Typically", for a build less than 500$, the PCB (my experience) would be about 5-7 % of the total cost. My estimated total cost for my V3 mono blocks is less than 1000 US$ (hope I will come within budget).

That sounds good. I hope this time around the boards will not run out in 2 days .

Regards,

Shoot! I only bought what are needed. Let's hope everything would be OK when I assemble it. I did get an extra set of matched FET (quads) from Buzz.
