Video filming day for the LDR3.V2K!  Roll'em!

Now that is the way to do it! See 1, Do 1, Teach 1!

Best,

Got all the raw "footage" done. Now comes the editing and voice over work. We didn't even try to script the spoken part, just showed the assembly steps. I will do the voice overs once we've whittled down the footage. Will break the whole thing up into chapters and post them on our youtube page when done. Still a lot of work left to get this done.

Is the video up yet?

I bought the full version and love it. I am considering buying a second as a kit.

Thanks!

We started on the editing process but have gotten sidetracked and also underestimated the amount of time it would take to do this and end up with a worthwhile end product. In the meanwhile we did make some progress on at least writing up a descriptive narrative (sans pic/video). Have that written up and posted up until the wiring process which we still need to finish. Our goal is to write up the wiring section this weekend. We have 10 pounds of projects in a 5 pound company.

What we have so far can be found here: http://www.tortugaaudio.com/documentation/#cat-7

As an interim solution, we've posted a narrative set of assembly instructions for the preamp kits. As part of this we are also now supplying all pcb boards already fully assembled and tested so no more soldering of individual components into circuit boards. As such, the kits are largely an assembly process of already built, cut and drilled parts together with point to point wiring.

You can find the current set of assembly instructions here: http://www.tortugaaudio.com/documentation/#cat-7

Also, we've added options to the kit where you can choose your display color (blue is default) and also opt for the high performance autocal op amp. http://www.tortugaaudio.com/documentation/#cat-7

Our passive preamp kit continues to lack a really good set of detailed assembly instructions. Despite repeated attempts to focus on getting this done, it's clear that unless I hire someone to do it simply will not get done.

As of yesterday, I've hired an outside person to execute this assembly instruction project. I anticipate it will take somewhere between 2-3 weeks to complete the work because the guy doing the work is also a student at a local college.

At the very least the assembly instructions will have numerous detailed step by step photos along with explanatory text.

The objective is to have assembly instructions that require zero knowledge about audio electronics etc. but the customer will still have to do some soldering of wires here and there. 

More on this when we have it up and available on the website.

Cheers,
Morten
