No, now I'm determined to build them out myself. I'll find other resources to help me through it, thanks. James if you'd like to include me in the group buy, great, if not, great.
I get that people want to learn and everyone starts somewhere. Here are some tips to consider:
1). Reach out to experienced builders in your area. People into DIY audio, radio, electric guitar etc. These people are generally pretty friendly and will help review your work.
2). If you are uncomfortable with that approach find an electronics repair shop. Tell them that you have a project that you have built and want a safety review prior to power up. They might charge $50??? Well worth it when you consider how much you have invested and that you are working with a device that can harm.
3). Practice soldering prior to working on your expensive new amp. Here is an example http://www.amazon.com/Elenco-SP3B-Practical-Soldering-Project/dp/B0002LUALG/ref=pd_sim_t_7
Pick up a book to go with it http://www.amazon.com/Make-Electronics-Discovery-Charles-Platt/dp/0596153740/ref=pd_sim_t_6
4). Hire someone to build it for you if these first 3 points don't appeal to you. What is the incremental cost 10% of project total?
5). If you are new to this do not power it on until a qualified person has reviewed your work
6). Be careful poking around the thing, treat every cap as fully charged etc
Seeing that the demand for these amps is high and that the retail versions are going to be stratospherically high in cost, many will want to make a go at it. This is doable if you use common sense and have a plan... otherwise how does that go a failure to plan is a plan to fail????
