cheap DMM

Hey Neruda,

If you haven't picked one up yet, there's a pretty good, cheap ($19) digital multi-meter at Circuit Specialists:

I haven't seen a better deal so far.

Now I can get help for the van Waarde amp. Before purchasing parts, I already invested $ in power drills, hole punch... I can locate almost all the parts and some how parts along cost more than $100. We're talking about generic parts from Digikey and alike here. Along w/ the investment in tools, it better sounds good.

Such fun!

Neruda, if you do get a multimeter, you will find that the resistors are only somewhat close to the value that they are marked at. Every resistor will be different from the value, due to inaccuracies in manufacturing. A multimeter will help you match the resistors for the best performance from your amp. And they can help troubleshoot if you have problems too. Have fun!

thanks budgie, I will get the multimeter as soon as I can. I just got my new case, so now I get to sit here and imagine what my finished amp will look like. But that's all for now
