Sounds like you have just put in a big board order what with this and the booster as well. You are keeping that fab plant running this year.
Yes :) several projects I ordered at once, and got UPS shipping.. So two or three days production, and two or three days shipping time.. I thought it would save having to pay courier prices each order, I am sure it saved some money, but a lot of PCBs is also very heavy, is why the postage ended up being £77 :-\

I did have one question and that is around the availability of the Falcon DAC. Are they getting scarce too?
I have been hoarding these for a while now, I literally have hundreds of them :)

PCB's just arrived :)

I really can't be bothered to add up the price of these things up and add them to my store, so any of you remake guys who wants one of these kits, send me a message with something like "VIDEO DAC" in the subject line with your address and I will send these out to you..

Indeed! Piles of projects and tests to be done with multiple things!

Isn't this card large enough to have its own daughter card? :poke: :poke:

Oh no - my remake board is going to go into skyscraper mode with this board.

I was just looking at the DAC board and it goes to the left where I have the PSU mounted.

I can put the PSU on stilts and the board will slide underneath.

Have already raised it just now ready for the board. Nylon hex pillars to the rescue.

Also I think it might need stacking to get above my XTAL hack too. Notice Shifter in a DIL socket stacked at level one.

Has anyone looked at the parts list especially the caps? Don't want to order the wrong size (footprint) as there are a few large ones in this design.
