And, yes. 30 dollars for a piece of pcb with copper is a ripoff.

Depends, if you are making 10,000 boards $30 may be a ripoff. If you are making 200 it is downright cheap --

Note sure where the $30 comes from. They are 17 USD each according to Rod's website.

Aussie dollars, maple-leaves or greenbacks?

So you didn't actually check out the website properly for the amp you want to build then?

Not to mention that you/we are also paying for Rod's development time and expense. There is no telling how many pre-release proto-PCBs (not to mention MOSFETs) he burner through to get the final result. It always looks simple AFTER someone else has done it.

These prices for the boards are via paypal. You may get a lower effective price by using the secure ordering app. option, buying via a credit card and having the credit card do the currency conversion. Depending on your banks conversion charges it is typically a lower cost way to go because ESP does not have to cover PayPal charges (fairly onerous) or exchange rate fluctuations.

OK soundNERD, I realise you are only teasing us. You've been around here long enough to know the reaction to trying to rip off Rod Elliott.

Good one, nearly got me.

Let's pass the hat around to collect of few bucks for soundNERD.

Hey I've got a even better idea, why don't you post this on Rod's forums, here's the url.

Pinkmouse,
Are you the one taking liberties with my posts?
Make sure you are on the right side of rule enforcement versus personal censorship.
Helping amateurs with their enquiries is the purpose of this forum as I understand it.
