Pretty slow (sometimes more than 30 seconds to load an image hosted on your site) here both for loading your pix on the forum and your site. I strongly recommend you use our server for hosting pix and files on the site - it will generally be faster.

Edit: As John L states below some images never completely loaded. My internet connection at work is around 5MB/sec and here at home around 2MB/sec. (DSL) I also use www.speedtest.net.

Ray, I'm using a cable modem. I just went to "speedtest.net" and checked my current speed. At this moment it is the following: download speed 9.77mbs; upload speed .36mbs.

Currently it is night and many are using cable modems around here, so the speed is not as fast as during the day. That's how cable modems go. But it is more than fast enough to get the job done.

Also, I am doing many things at one time, using multiple browser tabs, and other sites do not have any trouble loading quickly.

Let me give you an example. I had two of your pages loading late this morning. They were "6P3P Single Ended Tube Amplifier Kit", and "6j4+6p6p+6z5p HiFi Tube Preamplifier Kit". Some of the pictures and schematics would not completely download.

I had to make some errands on the other side of town. I left them downloading, and when I returned over four hours later they were still trying to download. The problem is at your end.

I am downloading and saving all the pictures of your kits, and placing them in separate folders, as they come up. That way I can go there and use them for reference, instead of having to wait for the web pages to finish downloading.

Terrific...I prepared many big photos of the inside of tube amps to show how to assembly it. I think I should upload it to the forum server.

You will get it worked out.

Here is my suggestion for pictures of the bottom of the project. If you take one straight down, one from the rear to the front, and one from the front to the rear, the kit maker will have a very good look at how the kit is best done.

I have found that just one from straight down is never good enough. But if also taken from front and back, it will catch practically everything.

You can make 220V tap for China and Russia.

Here in US we need 120V rated primary, not 110. I don't like when transformers saturate making extra hum and heat.

Ray, the schematic on the preceding page, on post number 12, will not download for me. I don't know if others are having a problem, but I can't get it to finish for me.

Hello Ray, looking at some of the amp module kits (like the class D modules), there are no specifications for the modules. Would be nice to know output power and power supply requirements etc.

Cheers,

Chris

Ray, you have me totally confused now.

I'm trying to make up my mind which kit I want to get, and suddenly you have changed the prices on me. The FU-10 has gone from $256.00 down to $226.00, which is fine for the buyer. But you also changed the 6n9p+EL34B SE from I can't exactly remember, but it was less than $200.00 and raised it up to $240.00.

I was looking closely at that last one, but now it's considerably more all of a sudden. I don't understand this.

Hello John

the price of FU50 was a mistake, it should be $226. $256 is the price for newer 6N8P version. My colleague forget to set $226 as the basic price. We found the mistake. It's corrected now. You can also choose 6N8P option in the order page.

I also asked about the price of EL34, it seems that nobody changed it recently, when did you see a $200 kit on our website?
