Sweet! Can you give us an indication of the pricing?
PCB's will most likely be $10. Kits can be figured out from the BOM + PCB price. I don't know that off the top of my head, but Beezar never prices anything in conflict with the BOM - at least for a kit. Casework is yet to be determined. As many of you know, that can cost almost 50% of the cost of the total device. I will try to keep the prices down and will always endeavor to offer a "short kit" without the case if it is feasible.
The PupDAC case will be almost a total equivalent - no more, no less, so you can use that as a guide for the case work. Obviously, one purchasing everything including the case will save money over purchasing everything separately. Also, please remember that some people have successfully sold similar projects using the same case but with $45 just for Front Panel Express endplates. The PupDAC does better than that and I feel certain that the DoodleBug will, too.*
* The idea is to have a red-anodized Hammond 1455C801 with laser-etching similar to the PupDAC, only with the DoodleBug logo that DingoSmuggler developed. The way things work in sales, these days, though, I'll probably do half-and-half, red cases and black cases. Seems like everyone wants black, no matter what it is.
** The PCBs will be red, period.
