I don't know what to do now. I broke two and I still have two left. I feel unethical to "borrow" a drill for one time use for this, but on the other hand I don't think I have a choice, since Tom doesn't have the time to drill it for me before he sent it out because he has such a lot of order to handle.
I don't have so many orders now - they've all shipped once the two go out tomorrow. Shoot me a PM.

Thanks for the offer. I just talked to my coworker and I can borrow a battery operated drill. Don't know if it'll work for this but I'll give it a shot first. I've soldered quite a bit of stuff and if I can get this done, and for the missing headphone jack to arrive, I'll be done with the assembly work and start to enjoy them.

Thanks for the great post and instructions ... I went to order the Beezar components and they have two different PCBs, min & max and no longer stock the MUSE ES 220uf 16v. Seems their promoting the Minimax kits. Has anyone had experience with these? Are they as decent (although twice the price) as the SSMH.
I already ordered the Mouser products.
TIA

The Starving Student kits will go on sale around the end of the month or early February. This will be the last run of kits.

As for your other questions, there are two very large threads - one each for the MAX and the MiniMAX. There's also many posts about both of them in Head-fi's amplifier section. The Search tool is your friend.

The place to buy a kit is what makes me a MOT (Member Of the Trade).

A google search for "Beezar Audio" will get you there. Not sure if it's ok for me to post the full link (even though I'm not a MOT) so that'll have to do.

Dear Tomb,

thanks for the handy tutorial, but I like the look of the one on your picture more. Did you make that box yourself or where can you buy it?

What "your picture" are you talking about?

I think he means your avatar . Wasn't it the first MiniMAX you've ever built?

Oh - OK. Yes it was:

(Millett Hybrid MiniMAX)
Note that it's certainly still possible to build the MiniMAX using the Lansing CT1 case and drilling your own holes. The templates are available on the MiniMAX website under the Construction pages.


However, I think the production version is a definite improvement:

Yes!
Thank you for uploading this...
This is really useful.

Really really interesting!
I'd like to build a millett, the problem is to find the pieces here in europe
The ideal will be a complete kit of this amp with pcb and electronics (case optional)
