I see the DOA hole on the PCB are 2.3mm. It sounds like quite a few use the sockets from CAPI which are 2.26mm. Just double checking that this is an appropriate match? Thanks

Okay! I saw these. It says they are 3.2mm... must be the measurement of the outer groove I guess?

BTW, your grey/blue EQs are some of thE best aesthetically that I've seen. Bravo!

 Thanks!

 These sockets work on the boards, so I know they are the right ones.   :)

After waiting 6 weeks and purchasing everything for this build, I inquired on shipping ETA for the PCB and Gustav sent me a refund. I legit want to cry.

He just sent out an email asking his customers NOT to email him unless they wanted a refund. I'm not sure if he means to ask for a refund, or if you email him he will automatically refund you.

So I still don't know... he won't be selling kits, but will he be selling the bare PCBs anymore?

I'd understood it to mean that he was still planning to sell the bare PCBs, just stopping the full kits.

Richard - it's worth asking Gustav if the refund means he's not selling those PCBs any more. It sounds like he's swamped at the moment, but he's a good guy and I'm sure will be happy to talk things through.

You placed an order on Jan 21.

When you did so, the header on the site, the info at check-out, and the info in the blog post had info, that processing would start feb 15th, and would take at least a month. I stated as a reason, that I was too busy to keep the kits going, but I would leave them up a little bit, so closing down didnt happen out of the blue.

You contacted me to get info specifically for your order of a Studer board, I told you, they would not be in stock until mid March for shipping earliest (I already had a fresh batch coming in, but chinese new years, covid - everything is making everything delayed).

You then contacted me again on the 28th to as about your order specifically.

I am focused on delivering, and when I get a distinct feeling, that I am unable to make someone comfortable with the waiting time currently involved, I do a refund, so they needn't worry about what I am doing, and I can focus on doing what I am doing.

If you want to order a board from me, I advice you to do so, when the site is updated with an "all clear". The PCBs will still be there, save the items marked with "last batch", which may be out of stock for good at that time.

I think you’re confusing me with someone else. The very first time I messaged was on the 28th. I was just asking for a timeframe since I had not heard anything since I ordered. In any case, I’ll reorder.

Hi,

I finally received my PCB for this build from Gustav at PCB Grinder, but in the file I can download from his website there is no BOM. Does anyone have an up to date BOM link to a mouser cart or something?


Cheers,

Folly

Hi there, it's not up to date but this was saved in my Mouser projects:

https://www.mouser.com/ProjectManager/ProjectDetail.aspx?AccessID=90275A1B41

doesn't include the pots or the Neutrik transformer.

Thank you. I’m not too fond of the knobs’ look, but I found them very inexpensive on eBay. They came with white caps, but I think they look better without. I wish these AML pots were 1/4” shafts.
