I stand corrected, I could not find any mention on their site about any exchange. I went forward in placing an order and it wasn't until we were in Papal did the exchange rate was shown. It is currently at 1.30 which works out to .77us per $1 can. Thanks, I did order everything I could from them.

All of the components are in, now all I need now is to get the board(s)  cut to 7x9 - or something fairly close anyway and the build will begin.

I want to see a video of him tinning the ends of the Litz inductors. :-)

That would be a long video if it was me doing the work. I cut the to the length I want  and unwind a inch or so and use 220 sand paper to remove the enamel coating on each strand the twist back together. Tell me there is a better way LOL. And I am still interested in purchasing some transformers from you Dean. Thanks Brian

Can anybody tell what the difference in sound is with the ALK crossover, compared to the Original Forté II crossover?

You may want to email Al and ask him.

At some point I guess I can put my .02 cents.

I have a solder pot I guess I could make a video but it might be a bit boring :)

You're not allowed to user a solder pot -- that's cheating. :)

ARRRG!!! I just realized I ordered 3.9 ohm resistors and not 39 ohm. I do have some Lynk 40 ohm 5% (2x20 ohm) and that will work, if I were to use 10% tolerance 39 ohm I would be in the same range. Need to get a new 9v battery for the DVM to see how close we are - just can't let it go.

Pfff - 39, 40 - what difference does it make!

 

A good 40 (Mills) will sound better than a bad 39 (everything else).

No Mills here, just Lynk. At least we are not using sand cast anyway.

I did find ALK's board layout and will follow it for my project.

with respect to ALK, this layout isn't very good... just looking at it, where's the in & out and the rest ?... you going to fit in a barrier strip to hook up to ?

None are needed, we will have a pic put up to show how it all is connected when finished.

Here is one board mostly fitted, just need to do the soldering.  Still waiting on some bar solder for the solder pot. And yes I see I have wires # 2 & 5 reversed on the autotransformer. :)
