It took me about 1 day to order the parts which were $12k. So they probably would have paid $15k for the parts + 20% = $18k. So I saved $6k for doing the parts ordering myself in 1 day's work. i know my time is limited but i cant see how something like that isn't worth doing.

 

Maybe for some companies the appeal is cash flow as they wouldn't have to pay for any of this until 30 days after receiving assembled boards.

Please Justin confirm that you check the parts on the boards you get back once assembled are the ones you provided, and not low-cost components... Some outsourcers are dishonest, to an extent that is hard to imagine.

And confirm that you also check them with a black light to ensure the assemblers wash their hands after visting the washroom.... some people don't wash their hands, to the extent that its hard to imagine.

The above is meant in a joking manner so don't take it personally.

Justin, please don't sterilise the amps when they get delivered.

 

Some like an organic sound to their music.

Have you heard of circuit gnomes?

 

The are like regular gnomes but these have a fetish for electric components, they like to sneak into your equipment at night and replace one part at a time with one that is slightly below manufacturer's specification.

 

 

The only way to really be sure you aren't becoming a victim of circuit gnomes is to check every component inside your equipment before you start listening to music.

This gnome really looks like Kelvin Gilmore... rather intriguing, don't you think so?

Cult place. Gainsbourg is a very close neighbour of my dad at Montparnasse's cemetery since 1991 :o

What about a BHSE with such a colourful front plate ? :biggrin:

There is no way to fake the 2sk216, 2sj79 or 2sa1486 parts.
If they are fake they don't last more than a few seconds.
Everything else is current production.
