renefg has pulled out from the 2nd batch. Please note that once I have started to order parts, I can't just cancel them. So be absolutely sure you want the buffer before you put your name into the list.

 

This has been running for over 2 days now, so I'll give it another 7~8 hours until 7.30am tomorrow morning (my local time) before closing the build.

Sorry, a bit too late for now. It takes time to order parts and shipping fee is quite expensive, so I can't take one or two requests over and over again. I'll reopen this thread when batch 2 is ready to ship out, and if we have enough people (4~5), we can go for a batch 3.

Hi there - I am interested in a HA-5002/Browndog adapter if/when you do another batch - also if you do a bulk order I would also be interested in 2x opa627au - I ordered some from ebay (used from china) but I have a real suspicion that they will be fake :-)

+1 for OPA627

Cheap OPA627 from China is almost certain to be fake. I actually ordered some just to compare them with the real deal. They ain't even close.

 

OPA627 + adapter will be a bit more complex. First, I need to order the blank adapter from FiiO, which I don't know how much they will cost or how many I can get. Second, the cheapest OPA627 I can find is about US$27 each, but guaranteed genuine as they are sold by element14. So the basic price will be over US$50 easily, and I have to take the money first as I don't want to overdraw my credit card. It is just more things to deal with.

If you'll be willing to go through all this trouble than I won't hesitate to buy one even if I have to pay for it upfront. But lets get the HA-5002 out of the way first. It will buy me some time to balance my banking account too.

 

I am also willing to ship you the adapters that came with my E12DIY as I have no plans on soldering them by myself.

Hi - I have ordered some used (de soldered) opa627au from an ebay user - he swears they are 100% genuine :-) - I am planning to try and solder the opa627au myself and test them out - have a full set of spare adapters with the diy still so willing to give it a go. I am still very interested in the HA-5002 when you do the next batch so please keep me in the loop.

There is an ebay user smallpartsbigdifference who is selling 'genuine' opa627 for something approaching normal prices (14 each rather than the normal 3-4) - any experience of this seller? The problem otherwise (especially in australia) is the crazy postage fees for small electrical orders!

Remarked, fake opamp is usually very hard to tell apart from the real one, unless you have sophisticated testing rig or a x-ray machine. The only practical way for the average joe to confirm the authenticity of the opamp is usually A/B with one that you know is real. Otherwise it is just he said she said.

 

Anyway, here is an update of the HA-5002 build so far. I already have the HA-5002 with me, but the adapters have been stuck in the airport for almost a week now. Due to your typical slacking of government officials, the package was sent to custom inspection twice for no good reason. But package should clear custom today and I should see it before week's end, hopefully.

I am also interested in HA-5002 if you are doing a next batch.

 

I would also be up for OPA627 as well if there is enough interest. I am happy to post you my blanks in case you cannot source any.

 

I am very interested to see what higher end components would do.

 

Thanks!
