I do not want it to be copied right away.

Ok. Let me then ask: how to disable the whole output stage and take the signal directly from ESS chip? I've tried that by removing IC9 and IC12, but failed...

Yes. In fact I plan on having that in the next batch of boards I order.

Cheers!

Hi,

I don't mean this badly, but this has been said a hundred times. The Buffalo32S board is not designed to be used in that way. I don't have time to support such modifications.

This is why it is a finished module, not a kit or bare PCB.

There will be a board without output stage I suggest anyone who wants to design an output stage use that board when it is available.

Cheers!
Russ

About two to three weeks. That should give me about 2 days to come up for a breath.

Absolutely, my apologies Brian. I was just excited about how it sounded.

Both you guys are the best and I can't believe how much work you put into making these kits.

New placid adjustable shunt regulating power supply boards have been ordered for testing. I should have them in a couple of weeks.

I will let you know how it goes.

Hi Russ,

Is the board big enough for boutique cap like Nichicon Muse?

Cheers,
Sam

Yes I believe they would fit. I gave something like 12-13mm around the big caps. 5mm pitch.

Is that really a big issue to advise for instance "remove all opamps" (my guess) ? Should I feel myself as 2nd category customer not allowed to touch anything since my taste differs from what most of users report?
