Let's build Krmathis a Beta22! - Page 2

I would be in for a few dollars.

I'm in too, I don't know with what yet, but I'll see what I have around and can donate it! I have tons of pcb standoffs, nuts and bolts so maybe that can be part of my contribution. I can also help with FPE design, a few bucks and if any woodworking is needed I have an equiped wood shop and some knowledge!

Stay tuned, while the details/logistics of the Krmathis group build are worked out. We would establish a paypal fund for the build, and the parts for the build would most likely be centralized at Amb's workbench. The build would center around Amb's workbench, because of quality control procedures. Possibly another location could also be used to do the actual building, however details for that have yet to be worked out. Thanks for the support, that our generous members have been willing to provide.

Well, I put together a basic parts BOM so we have an idea of a goal for at least the first stage. Obviously casework would probably double the budget, feel free to edit the spreadsheet and fill in that section if you have a good idea of costs there.

Just some suggestions.......

If things get unwieldy with so many cooks spoling the broth, perhaps just base the build around a Glass Jar Audio kit, minus any big parts that can be easily donated?

It looks like building the amp and getting the panel work done (FPE I'm assuming) would be best managed in the US. Then package and ship over to Europe for casing in a HiFi 2000 case with the FPE panels.

Jeff's kits totally slipped my mind. Might even be a cheaper way to do it too.

I agree on the shipping. As few locations as possible is going to help of course, but I think parts are cheaper here (in north america) and easier to source. It makes sense to at least stuff the PCBs here, and they shouldn't be too expensive to ship. If amb is offering his workshop for building this up, that's awesome, we can't go wrong taking that offer!

Yeah, you just don't want to ship any cases and transformers if you can avoid it

I will create a PayPal fund for this endeavor. Details coming soon.

Me too ... Malldian, I'll match your contribution (how's that for peer pressure!). And let's pass the hat at the NJ meet we'll both be at (I know we just agreed no hats, but this is different )

Here is the new group-build site with a donation link:
β22 Group-build Project

I have created a special PayPal account for this.

I have a relay based stepped attenuator from dantimax that I`d be willing to donate for this build.. with the seperate power supply and whatnot i think it was around $100.

I couldn`t quite get rid of some noise coming from it... pretty sure thats my inexperience though, and for someone like AMB, a 15 min look would produce a nice high-quality volume source

Anyways, out of the country until august, but would be happy to ship it over to amb if you guys are interested

I really want to see this get off the ground, so US$20 from me. A small price to pay for good karma in the DIY community.... and hopefully a big enough challenge for other people to match or beat

Pay it forward.

I would like to donate a completed e24, q24 combo to your project.

I also have an extra Goldpoint K1.4-S-SH knob that you can have.

Just let me know where to send everything.

MisterX, I will PM you with that information. Thank You

Once I get the shipping address for parts, I will PM those who have parts on hand to ship. I will keep Ti informed of what parts have been shipped and the first post will keep a tally of parts received, and duplicate the link to the Paypal donation link there.

Hmm... very good idea, guys. I'll be donating in a few days, once I determine how much I can spare.
