Nic,
Your reg. heatsink upgrade kit was sent to you by reg air parcel on March 4 already.
Sorry for the late notice. I'll PM you about tracking no.

Some of the batch 1 guys asked us for the regulator heatsink conversion kit.
We promised, and we WILL make them available to you all on demand.
But since it costs quite a bit, and Nic promised to test and report first, this is the only reason why we are not offering a GB immediately.
If, however, there are enough of you who cannot wait, you can just form a GB group and we shall get them made and sent to local distributor.
We do not have a lot-price yet, but it is likely to be around 1400 HKD including postage.
Bulk shipment might be cheaper.


Patrick

Patrick,

many thanks for making the protection board circuit description available a few days ago.
It is very useful and I highly appreciate it knowing that you enjoy designing, building and of corse listening much more than doing paper work.

Markus

Yes - I very much agree!
Once Alexis has passed his exams and hard disk failures I hope he will find the time to come up with chapter two
Sounding just fine here - so no urgency in this end

I was thinking of holding a couple of google hangouts as I solder up each of the two boards that I have to do. If people would find that useful. I'll do it on Sunday here In Australia if you guys choose a time between 9 am and midnight AEST (UTC+ 10).

That way you guys can ask questions live then I'll post the hangout on google.

You missed the point, Markus.

Point 1 :
As you know, I always want the people who do the work to get the credit.
Alexis did the work, so I wanted him also to do the final "presentation", until I was forced to intervene.

Point 2:
All the elements involved in the protection circuit are the most simple logic and a diff pair.
This is more fundamental than the F5X circuit itself, since it is all logic level.
Thus, the only information needed from me to understand how the circuit works is in the schematics.
XEN Audio has the mission to get people to understand circuitry.
So writing a comprehensive description, which is spoon feeding, is against our principle.
There is no more effort required to get through the circuit by oneself from basic principles.

One can argue whether you should just throw a baby into the water and he will learn to swim.
Or you hold him all the while in water until one day he can.
Both schools have successful examples, so it is a matter of personal choice.


Patrick
