Number of hours spent on your build?

I spoke with Morten yesterday and ordered a single ended pre amp kit.  I was just wondering how much time I need to allocate to the project.

Hi Jeff,

Having done it countless times myself it takes me between 2-4 hours to build an LDR3 preamp. My assembly tech would take roughly 3-4 hours after having done numerous units. I would imagine most people will take 4-6 hours or lets say "a day". Most of that time will be spent pondering the wiring. The hardest part of the mechanical assembly is putting the display assembly together. Not because it's inherently complex but there's so many ways to not do it correctly.

Enjoy!
Morten
