In short "no"

Buy the kit from Rod, and you will be entitled to all his support, and ours also.

Not only don't you have the component values, but you also don't have the knowledge and experience to design a PCB that will work properly with this sensitive design, judging by some of your other questions.

The board is a fair price and comes with full building instructions. It would be a wise move to buy it rather than waste components.

Buy Rod's boards as there's a lot of thought gone into the layout which is as important as the component value. For me, this is Rod's best amp so it's worth the few dollars for the PCB's.

I bought two boards, built the amp, and its great. As others have suggested, do the same.

It will make it much easier than building your own PCB. I've been there, done that. PCB work is mind numbing, especially if you are just trying to replicate the work of someone else. Imagine hand soldering a 36pin QFN along with 0603 and 0402 SMDs. PITA!!

Back to the amp. Mines been going strong for a few years now (maybe three of four) and I've put it through its paces into a little less than 4ohm loads. Well worth the price.

I've built two of the P101 2-channel amps with the P39 softstarts.Do yourself a big favor buy Rod's PCB's. These amps are kickass. Plus you will get tons of techsupport.

Yep,

Rod doesn't give the componant values for a reason. It's called intellectual property. The boards are only $17 each and that includes access to the build articles for all of his projects. A very good value.

Blessings, Terry
