I'm looking at ordering a kit and I had a couple of questions before I do. When I built my SS, I fried the mosfets when I was a little careless with the DMM probes. Can someone suggest what parts to order extras of if I'm similarly stupid while building this? I'd hate to have to wait on a Mouser order for one transistor.
I noticed towards the end of the other thread there was discussion of prepunched panels for the case. Are these available?
I finished my build recently and did LOTS and LOTS of readings because I was trying to troubleshoot a problem (reversed diode). I didn't fry any components at all. I think you will be fine. The MHSS is a nice amp, but this one is much nicer from both the builder standpoint and, more importantly, the listener standpoint
One tiny piece of advice. When soldering in your resistors, make sure the solder doesn't wick to far on the topside of the board. I am used to seeing the solder come all the way through to the top from using wave solder machines, so I actually made sure I had a good connection on both sides. This made attaching to some of the resistor test points more difficult. Maybe take not of which resistors you will be taking readings on and make sure there is a little extra leg on top to grab with your gripper probes.
