Default Anybody have a PCB for this?

I want to build this project (project 101), http://sound.westhost.com/ but don't think the price for his boards and shipping is worth it.

So, does anybody have the PCB pattern for this project that I can use to make my own board?

Randy Slone's ("High Power Audio Amplifiers" and "Audiophile Guide") books on amplifiers using the 2sk1058/2sj162 lateral mosfets -- both books have PCB layouts which can be enlarged and used as a templates.

I should point out that Rod makes a living from selling his amplifier kits, and that requesting copies of his work is theft.

You haven't thought of actually buy one from Rod? How much more expensive does your amp project get if you buy a working pcb?

Trust me on this one, his price is a bargain. You definately do not want to etch your own PCB unless you absolutely have no other choice. I would easily pay twice or three times that to avoid etching a PCB.

You're kidding right? USD 30 including shipping...

As I pointed out earlier, how much more will your amp project cost if you will add 30 dollars? Of course if you etch the pcb yourself it will cost you 1 dollar at the most but this pcb layout happen to be NOT public domain. I'll guess you have to sit down and make the pattern yourself... which isn't so easy if you don't know how it should look like.

This guy isn't Microsoft, if you want to use his design you should definately buy his board.

Yes, I have a PCB for this.

No, you can't have it. It is intellectual property that belongs to Rod Elliot. The price Rod is asking is cheaper than dirt. It is more than worth it. The only reason the design you covet exists is the hope on Rod's part he can recover the cost of design and fabrication plus a modest profit. If you have never successfully laid out an amplifier PCB even from a cookbook schematic, you cannot imagine the time, effort and cost it takes to "get it right". If it were me, I would be pricing the boards 50-100% higher and no way would I post the schematic (even without values) on my website like Rod does.
