i hope a lot of others will participate and you'll be able to make this one very succesfull.
Seeing how many European members DIYaudio has there should be much more people getting involved in group buys.

Due to circumstances i have been out of diy audio for a great many years, i have a lot of catching up to do.
Whenever people asked me, i told them lots i still needed to do, no diy audio however. Did i have a great time ? Not really.

All European DIY'ers are highly recommended to order a few boards. This is a great oppertunity to enter the world of single ended Class A. (Or the world of Nelson Pass, if you like )
Even if you have no plans of building one right away, you better secure a set of pcb's for yourself. This is the easy, and fairly cheap way to start, down the single ended path. You will probably
'pass' out, when you here it

Yes, they are easy scalable. I made a couple of Zen revisited and Zen V2's with different bias currents and Vs. My latest V2 I found the heatsinks were too hot (in the summer) so I replaced the bias resistors for lower current and thus less power. Very easy indeed.

I was thinking about building a aleph 30, since I like the power my current gainclone has, but I kinda miss the natural and warm sound my Zen produces...

2mm pcbs with 70um copper would cost 40% more as the normal PCBs with 1,5mm and 35um.
That means that the boards would cost for a small order 30-35 Euro each and the normal ones 25 Euro.
Is that too much?

With a larger order the price should fall under 30Euro for the thick ones

The normal boards would be a lot cheaper but these thicker ones are real cool.

But at least the cost for shipment wonts be a lot. A few Euro in Europe as a letter with signature.

I just found out that I could get the standard pcbs like the passdiy ones for 18,00 Euro each.
I think its an unbeatable price.
I still have to get an offer for the thicker ones.

Promitheus, where did you ask for prices?
Asking, because Karis latest A-X mainboards costs 8.40USD.
At the prices you have, we could as well make a "groupbuy"
directly from PassDIY. That would cut the postage.

I have asked a few companies here in Germany but these prices are for an order of 30-50 pieces.

18 Euro for the same board in standard quality is not bad.

The thicker ones cost a lot more because they are a special order.

25 Euro for the thicker ones are also not a bad price for such a small order.

I also bought a few Aleph-X boards for way cheaper but that group buy was for over 1000 Pcbs, I think it was way more maybe even 1500-2000 pcbs.
Thats a whole different story.

SO I am back with new prices.

I got a few prices back today from different pcb manufacturers and the best price was for the good quality boards with 2mm PCB and 70um copper for 16,60 Euro a piece.

I think its not bad.

Well the best price I can get is 15 Euro but only if I order 100 pieces or more.

The interest is not so big as I thought but I will wait till the end of the month and see what happens.
