IC: Cavalli Compact Tube Hybrid (CTH) PCBs - rev 1.3 aka Rev A

Will Ship To: Anywhere

PCBs have been ordered & about 26 should be available for cost + shipping late Dec 2011 / early Jan 2012.

For now let's have a 2/person limit to assure those that want 'em get 'em.

 

The boards are due to be shipped to me the 2nd week of Dec & I'll make them available after building one out...  Although these are the very same PCBs as the last GB & thus proven, I'm a careful guy & would also be making a BoM w/currently available parts nos.

See this thread for info on this rev: http://www.head-fi.org/t/542279/the-cth-compact-tube-hybrid-rev-a-thread  and of course the Cavalli Audio DIY pages: http://www.cavalliaudio.com/do-it-yourself/

 

You may post an interest reply to this thread if you are very sure you'll go through with the purchase, again to assure those that really want & will really build 'em get 'em.  Will accept instant (non-CC) paypal payments for my cost/board ($10 USD) + all shipping costs & will ship to confirmed addresses.   

 

If you haven't built a CTH know that it's a solid, proven design intended for intermediate+ builders with a couple of successful builds under their belts.  We say this because it's 150+ through-hole parts in a 3"x5" space, its no fun tracking down build errors & the only support is through the DIY community.  Print out the scale PDF of the prior rev's silkscreen to have a clearer idea of this: http://www.cavalliaudio.com/diy/cth/main.php?page=instructions/assembly

OK  This batch of PCBs is allocated (may do another batch in 3 -> 6 months if interest warrants it:

When the time comes I'll do paypal invoices/requests, $10/PCB plus shipping - US: Priority flat-rate envelope + delivery conf, International: First Class Int'l.  Either looks to be about $6-7 USD per package.

 

12/5 Update:  The PCBs are in & my parts orders placed for my BoM-proofing build out.  Hopefully the parts will arrive by this weekend & I may be able to get it built/confirmed good by Monday Dec 12th or thereabouts.   Then get paypal requests out & get shipping 'em.

12/7 Update: Both Mullet & myself plan to build the 1st CTHs for this batch (hopefully) this weekend.   This will proof the minor BoM revisions - a couple for parts-sourcing & a couple as minor improvements.  After this is done I'll get to the paypal bit & get shipping. 

BTW we'll have a revised BoM XLS & a shared Mouser BoM for this.  The parts orders totals for a std CTH are looking to be around $130 or so + shipping - that's real total (case, A/C adapter, jacks, etc).  Count on at least 5hrs build time, more if you are as careful as you should be building this little amp:)

 

12/11 Update: My CTH buildup is working fine.  Having run it for about 3 hrs using both 12.6v & 6.3v tubes, think we can say the new BoM + this rev PCB are proofed.

Will post a couple pics & notes in the CTH Rev A thread & send out requests for payments so some boards can go out this week.  Please assure your registered/confirmed PayPal address is complete & correct (especially non-US payers - must have your complete address, formatted as it should appear on the shipping label - let me know any corrections in your reply).

Payment request PMs have just been sent out.

 

Payments are coming in (thanks!) & associated PCB(s) should ship within a day or two.  You may want to consider placing your parts orders.

 

12/13:  Updated spreadsheet above - 11 Small Priority Flatrate boxes are now in hands of USPS.  Plan to get the balance of paid PCBs out tomorrow (Wed) or latest Thurs.

 

12/14:   All paid PCBs are now sent & everyone should have tracking #s to confirm/track their packages.  Last update until next batch of PCBs (post here if you are interested), well unless/until kytuphicanh pays:)

Be sure not to miss posts in the CTH Rev A thread e.g. Semitec CRD sub option (which once again not something to loose sleep over:)

 

12/28:  Will be shipping one PCB each to Pingfloid & Scy (they've paid for those originally held for kytuphicanh, their requests came in before mmcaleer's).

So now there are no spare PCBs (unless someone w/2 lets one go). 

Again it's possible we'll do another batch in 4->6 months or so depending on how these builds go & the interest level in PCBs between now & then.

Okey, dokey.   I'll update that little spreadsheet once in while w/adjustments.

BTW I don't mind if all the PCBs aren't spoken for by year-end, I'd just raise the 2 PCB/per-person limit, see what happens then sit on the rest until they go.  That's why I choose getting a batch made over waiting out a GB for 25+ boards.
