Also his attitude is more appealing than some posters on this thread....

So I would say he has stated that he is non-profit and convincingly demonstrated this, but my opinion isn't an important one on this!!


One another note: Isn't it fun when Nelson is "on Holiday"
He writes us more!!

Thank you Kristijan.

I take that as a clear statement of not-for-profit, and
it's good enough for me.

It is very difficult to determine the cost of getting pcbs made, without knowing the quantities involved. If kristijan-k is doing small runs of pcbs, he might not be making much money at all.

Here is a cost analysis of what it would cost to get a batch of his Aleph-X boards made, assuming that I had a similar layout of size 8.5" x 5":

(figures for using Advanced Circuits with a 2-week leadtime)
Cost = $149 tooling + $150 fee for non-standard soldermask [blue]color + (per board cost * quantity) + shipping from manufacturer.

Given these numbers, here are the costs per board including the overhead charges:

10 boards: $57.58 each
20 boards: $32.53 each
50 boards: $17.50 each
100 boards: $12.49 each

Also, his prices include shipping as well. Board manufacturer prices also vary, depending on location.

Good that you can shake hands but maybe you should create a written agreement?

Kristijan,

Thank you for clearing that up and thanks to Nelson once again for his generosity. I apologize for the inconvience during the time it took to clarify this issue. Please feel free to put your web link back in your signature. I, for one, am glad that everything worked out ok.

Mr. Roddyama,

If in the first few posts of this thread the "Link removed due to infringement of Passlabs IP" refers to Kristjan's site link, may I make a suggestion it be removed in light of what has transpired in the latter part of the thread.

Very happy this issue is solved, because the availability of good PCBs is a great plus for any new diy-er who wants to make a Pass like amp and cannot wait for the next group buy.

Also the little manual Kristijan provides (and extra help if requested) is very valuable for any new commer.
