Hello Chris,
Thanks for making me aware.
these days people want pcb as well as components in the form of a kit. e.g. JLH amp, there are many designs posted or available all over internet, but still people prefer aliexpress/ ebay kits.

Also on the decline, is people making their own home etched single sided PCBs. The sales of cheap chinese 100mm x 100mm pcbs is on the rise, as evident from many many Chinese board house cropping up. Although I agree that quality per unit $ is too good to be true. I started my diy with home etched pcbs and preferred designing single sided pcbs, but now switched over to cheap double sided pcbs from China for small circuits.

Anyway, I shall follow your suggestion and get rid of all extra things I no longer have a requirement.

regards
prasi

Hi prasi,
Some of us want a "Heathkit" with everything included. I do when special parts are involved. If a case is available, like with some small low distortion oscillators I built - GREAT! We all like our projects to look good.

To be honest, if the parts are available, then a BOM with Digikey and / or Mouser numbers should suffice. I don't see why a normal project without special requirements needs a parts kit. You can even store the required parts as a BOM at Digikey and give access to it. Then there is lower cost for everyone and no fuss involved at all.

I do repairs and make prototypes, so having to order parts here and there is normal for me. Maybe not for someone starting out who might be afraid of ordering the wrong parts. The BOM option solves that. The parts vendors can create your parts kits for you.

-Chris

Hello Chris,
that heathkit site do have interesting products. i might build 'most reliable clock gc-1006' myself.
Thanks for all of your suggestions, i have been through all of them, and no longer depend upon reputed sites for components except may be for actives.
there are great local manufacturers/suppliers/dealers, who dont have online presence. e.g. pcb manufacturers and some passive component manufacturers and dealers. they have been around for ages and who don't take risk of fake components, so you are guaranteed for genuine stuff.
regards
Prasi

Hi prasi,
I suggested those sites as everyone has access to them. Nothing more than making your BOM easily available to most of the people possible. Plus, they can always take teh actual device number and buy them locally if they want.

Yes sir, I understood and agree completely. I was merely suggesting an option to people to search for reliable local retailers/dealers and not depend on big companies like mouser/digikey for everything.
big companies have big overheads (website/IT management, customer care, big warehouse costs, shipping departments, etc )that are passed on to the customers atleast partially even after considering economies of scale.
Its been my experience that I can get original components that are sold at considerably lesser price locally than that of rscomponents/element14, etc.
Yes, a bom always works best, here is my crc supply bom, that is complete with sch, stuffing guide, mouser parts and also some calculations for component selection which many people have appreciated.
Based on this, people can research for local components and make it economical to build such circuits.
I believe, Marc has made available everything possible to make it easy to build this amp.
regards
Prasi
