Re: Mundorf Mlytic HV caps

... is it worth mentioning that I have quite a few Alcaps in stock?

Re: A new member of the family!

Hi All

Both Pre3 CF and Pre4 PCBs have been designed to mount on standoffs fitted to the slots in the base of our chassis - there's a bit of latitude for positioning fore-and-aft. PCB dimensions...

Re: Is this a decent price?

Re: Is this a decent price?

There's no "list price", but I would have to charge more than that. Helpful?

Re: WAD Pre II Conversion to Cathode Follower
