nearly certain now that theres a 150euro threshold now for import duties/taxes. Might be worth considering splitting the order into a few batches to stay under this. Or if you want to send a shipment or 2 to me and I forward it immediately to you... if thats any help. Maybe it only complicates matters, but let me know if you want help.

Fran,

Here it is £10! Thanks for the offer, once i have worked things out i will contact you if need be.

Phonoclone 3
Hi woodturner-fran. Reguarding the PCB, it is really easy. I used presentation transparency sheet where I print the PCB image, top and back. Then I aligned both film layers very precisely and keep them in place using a piece of scotch tape. I insert the PCB material behind the two films and expose both side one after an other. Just devellop and etch it. Voilà instant PCB. IT takes me about one hour to get the complete PCB.

I wrote a two parts article on home made PCB into Bas Horneman DIY magazine. I can send you a copy. The file are big however with a lot of pictures. Or maybe ask Bas for his magazine.

Here the PCB platted, ready for drilling.

I am not interesting for the kit, as I've already have the parts (from the previous version of phonoclone).
Very good job Rhys!
Thank you.

Sorry, the boards have been ordered. I did not think to order any spares.


As a matter of fact, the boards are on their way to me via fedex.

Default OT but....

Endezone: big difference though is that the phonoclone worked right out of the can, just tried a few different experiments,

The F5 has me stumped. Don't know what the hell is going on with it. Wouldn't mind but I had the chassis all painted, finished and ready to roll first! Anyway, i hope I get it sorted. Have to admit that now its down to changing components one by one to see what the story is.

You guys are going to have a very nice phonostage each!


Fran

I'm a real pleb when it comes to this stuff, so it's nice to see other people have problems as well. It will be good to see yours up and running so you can help me with mine...
And I would like to hear what you think with this combo......

Your F5 is starting to worry me. I have just spent over $500 on casing, transformers and capacitors. I hope the bloody thing will work!

My F5 from cvillers GB worked "out of the box". But i just used the amp boards, cause i had the PS from the Aleph J which also fits the F5. So no pre-fear.
stefan

i just have a little problems with the potential "bass shyness" of F5.
(sorry rjm for ot)
