I'm having the same thought, Tony, but I think it might not go well with me if I were to spend another $300 on empeg gear without telling swmbo. I'm tempted though. Very tempted.

EDIT: How much for just a board and cables?

Heh, stumbled in for a quick peek and what do I find...

Add me for 1 unit.

Did a quick scan of the thread and saw a rough price idea which was quite reasonable - just let me know when, how, where to and exactly how much.

Price for the first 10 is $260. The second 10 or more will be somewhat more depending on what the price of the PCBs is. The original order was done with a discount that is no longer available, hence the increase.

You had better add me to the list for one unit then. I don't need an extender just at the moment, but I think it is worth the investment for the future, you never know when you might have a car that needs it.

Sure thing. I can probably build about 8-10 of these in a week given the current work load, so as soon the last of these parts are sorted out, I will contact folks about payment.

Put me in for one, assuming the price stays under $300. The writing on the wall with the future of DIN units.

Alvin just showed me some preliminary pricing which seems to indicate prices will be about $8 to $16 higher, so it would be about $268 to $276.

We tested the third set of rivets and they worked, so here is the final tested parts list.

I will begin contacting those on the list to pay up front so we can buy the parts without the speculative element.

That's the empeg thinking, right there. I wish I could get one, right up there with my unused tuner and (sort of) unused memory board. But I must pass..... maybe.

So, ~$300 for parts, but could you provide an estimate for assembly cost? That's what hits the electrically dis-inclined like me.

Any why not use round cable instead of flat? Seems more sturdy; less surface area to get scraped, easier to bend at angles, etc.

Oh, and before doing the second run, take down payments from everyone interested. That's one sure way to (nearly) avoid the no-shows which plague empeg hardware projects.

That's one I can answer: assembly of the cable takes about 20 seconds, tops, with flat cable. Compared with perhaps half an hour for round cable. I'll choose the flat every time, then, thanks!

Flat also fits neatly under automotive carpeting without bulges or wrinkles showing, and can be converted to "round" style as required by simply splitting and bundling the conductors.

Cheers

Because of the volume of these, the only halfway economical way to do them is to hand solder. This takes maybe a little over an hour plus some extra time for cleaning off the PCBs, crimping and hardware installation. All in all its about $75 for assembly.

Hi.

I am just finishing off building up the four sets I have left. Two are already spoken for (Sorry I didn't get yours out last week, Mark, I had a sudden emergency job that took me to Cambridge for nearly a week It should go out today.), but the other two are available.

Yes. I'm sorry, I meant to reply earlier, I made a mistake when I said R52 was the correct one I was looking at a partially, (and incorrectly) built board!

Ooops, sorry I haven't sent the money. I'll do that right now. You guys can take me off the list since I'm getting one from pca. I didn't step out of line to do that, by the way, I think I was next on the list after the 10 units.

First 10 only. I'll do the next 10 after the first ten are built. So far only have had responses for 7 of the 10, so I might have to move down on the list.

Thanks,
Stu

For totally selfish reasons - Will those asking for more than 1 defer the additional units till the next round? Please, Please, Pretty Please.

Probably too late to turn them away. MarkM contributed the designs, so you can't really say no to him, Mach got this rolling and his have shipped anyway, and the other two-fer order has been paid for.

Sorry .

You are in the 9th slot for the 12th set. As gbeer said we probably should have limited it to one set per person, but we didn't expect these to be as in demand as they are and were just trying to get the leftover PCBs used up. I've taken over the project completely now from Mach and so will definitely offer a second batch that hopefully will satisfy everyone.

Thanks,
Stu
