    There is now a final BOM available via the link.

    This is just a change of part number for Capacitor C131.231. Values are unaffected.

    There will be no further alterations unless parts become obsolete.

    Default Alterations to the BOM!

    Alerations to BOM have been mad to provide better performance in the RIAA figures.

    Here they are:

    Alterations:

    R113.213 = 68K

    R121.221 = 180K

    R122.222.= 27K

    C131.231 = DO NOT FIT!

    If anyone requires a new copy of the BOM, just drop me a message.

    This is the last change to this PCB.

    I wasn't there so won't comment on the outcome but if the owner would like to share the days details, he's more than welcome

    Cool pic!,

    Thanks!

    Only prototypes but look nice, should sound the same as the MC version, I hope.

    Hi Oliver

    Will this use the same power rated tranny as the MC only board?
