I've got it all going and I am amazed. I'd like to thank Brian for his excellent and complete kits and Russ for his wizardry. The shunt regs were a breeze to set up. Thanks to Russ for thinking the problem through and designing a balanced solution.

With them available, I'm looking at either the kit or boards only for the Low-Z Retro. Are updated schematics & BOM available for the Low-Z version... I'd like to compare the parts needed against my stock to determine whether the kit or the raw boards make more sense for me.

TIA!

Yes, for the most part. Consult the Parts List on our site, which lists the vendor and aprt numbers I used. Anything not from Mouser can be substituted with parts that are available there.

Brian,

Thanks for putting the Low-Z BOM & schematic up on the the Retro Page.

RobFreak, I did a quick glance at the BOM & priced the expensive items and unless you have a LOT of the parts sitting around and/or want to go extreme upscale, buying the kit is about as economical as ordering the parts yourself AND the OpAmps come pre-mounted. I don't mind soldering those packages, but there is a time savings and the cost extra (if any) is minimal).

Me, I'm ordering the kit version.

Even if you go upscale, it would be a good idea to start out stock to make sure it works. Many "audiophile" parts have issues- size, characteristics and values...

Yes - I recommend using the stock parts, they sound awesome.

Really the only parts that might need tweaking would be the resistors for gain.

Does this kit work well with a standard phono output from a turntable? That is, would I be able to connect a standard RCA output from the table to the Retro, or is it common for manufacturers to short the RCA connectors together internally?
