Default Brown Dog adapters - in Europe?

Hello!
I tried to order a couple of DualtoSingle adaptors on the Brown Dog website, but didn't succeed.
Are they or any any similar adapters available in Europe?
Thanx
Tom

Just phone them or send email. Use air postage.

You can get adaptors from RSWWW.COM or Farnell.com but Farnell is expensive.

Hi Zombie,

I actually succeded in ordering from Browndog's website... it's a bit tricky here and there but I got it working.

Haven't recieved the adapters yet though, but they drew the $$ from my account today, so I guess they are on their way.

Hi cdl,
How much did they charge you for shipping and handling costs?

Only 6$, actually - I was surprised that it would be that it wasn't more expensive. But then you have to order at least 5 adapters (fair enough I guess).

Hi, they told me to add a state bacause they check the accuracy of the adddresses anyway...
I'll try tomorrow.

Btw, how to you use the Brown Dogs? Into a socket or straight onto the pcb?
Do you decouple each opamp on the adapter or did you leave the "old" caps at the double opamp pins?

Cheers,
Tom

Hi Zombie, good luck ordering

I plan to use the adapters in sockets to start with, as I have some prototyping to do!

When I decide on final designs, I will consider soldering them in, at least for the CD-player upgrade I am planning on.
But if I can get hold of some good sockets or pin arrays, I think I'll use them in my preamp, where later modifications might come in question

As for decoupling, I haven't quite decided yet... I think I want 100nf & 4,7F (and maybe more) decoupling on the board, and mica 470pf's or something like that on the adapter. If I can make it all fit...

Happy modding,

cdl

Default import-stuff

Just to say that my Browndog adaptors arrived today, everything in the package etc. etc.

BUT I had to pay 35% surcharge... for stupid danish import taxes & "customs handling charges"!!!!!! Dammit .

Sometimes, I sure do hate this self-content, self-sufficient, overpriced and overrated little narrow-minded country .

Well... after all still cheaper than Farnell's adapters at least.

Cheers,

cdl
