Group Buy (?) for fully assembled & tested "Norwood" boards in M2x Power Amp
Default Group Buy (?) for fully assembled & tested "Norwood" boards in M2x Power Amp

I would like to announce that I am ready to conduct a Group Buy. It will be fully assembled, fully tested, ready to use "Norwood" PCBs. These are input daughterboards for the diyAudio Store "M2x" amplifier. Norwood is sometimes imagined to be a challenge for DIY builders because it uses surface mount parts.

I propose to sell sets of two Norwood boards, fully assembled and fully tested, for USD 60 (plus postage) per set. This allows people who own an M2x amplifier, but who are unable or unwilling to build a surface mount board, to install a pair of Norwood boards and to conduct a listening evaluation.

Including postage, handling, and shipping fees the price will be USD 65 for US buyers, USD 70 for CAN+MEX buyers, and USD 75 for rest-of-world buyers. Compare that to the parts cost of a pair of M2x "Ishikawa" boards and remember that you receive fully tested, working boards. You don't solder anything.

If there are more than 5 people who are willing to commit to purchasing a pair of Norwood boards, I'll purchase components and start building. Max number of buyers will be limited to 15 (i.e. 15 sets of 2 boards), after which I will stop taking names and making promises.

Anyone who is CERTAIN they would purchase a pair of fully assembled and tested Norwood boards, at the prices mentioned above, please reply. If the number happens to go above 5 people, we'll start to make it happen.

Mark Johnson

I’m down for that...I’ll purchase one set. As long as there isn’t flux splattered all over mine.

I have ordered parts for all daughterboards, except for Norwood board, so this is a welcomed opportunity. I am in. Thanks!

I also want to buy a set of boards.
Is this the proper way to order a set or should it be a PM?
