He does, but I suspect your potential future offering will be more than I can afford to replace my daughter’s ~35 year old Technics.

Just an idea but perhaps it would be easier and cheaper for Graham to focus solely on producing some PCB-only products then only give the user guidance regarding housing them for shielding and protection. No costly metal work and gives him more time to focus on the electronics, also helping to keep prices down for those who like to build things up themselves.

I have difficulty doing the "painting by numbers" expected by many of today's "makers." I flatly refuse to do it!

What's wrong with learning about stuff? Isn't it better to share experiences, so the other person benefits from the reception of knowledge?

Understandably, my three-year pursuit of trying to make a "retro" amplifier perform "circus tricks" has been hard, if not impossible, to follow. It is, however, packed with information nobody else will explain to you.

Its basis is the simplest of amplifier circuits, intentionally so that every component's function might be grasped. I think such comprehension is essential to give the constructor the confidence that they can achieve a lot more.

The difficulty I have, which others may care little about, is knowing what your expectations are. I think you will have great expectations and will be disappointed if what you build doesn't match what we offer "commercially."

That being the case, I have to put as much effort into a DIY design as I do for everything else. I have to find solutions just like I have to find to make our mainstream products sound as good as they are. Would you think those with a prolific output do the same for you?

There is also the problem of time. You might change your mind. The Groove Runner and 5V 3A power supply are good examples of things wanted at the time, but after going to great pains to design them correctly, they are now found to be gathering dust.

Yes.......Commercial reality needs to factored with design indulgences .....but yes semi prepared kit  may attract less purchase value added Tax ..But yes the 'way to go' and all the research and experimentation and skills and knowledge that Prof will see glory....

I still want the 5V 3A PSU, I am just being disciplined and waiting for my last K1000 to sell, which will hopefully go before Christmas then I am making an order.
