List of local source for PPA parts

Recommended Posts

Everyone building an amp will need many parts.

Most of the parts in anyshop are irrelavent to the need of an headamp.

Why not keep a list so that the junior don't have to waste time on items the pioneers have already found.

This list will be particular for PPA, but parts for most amps are more or less the same, it should be useful to ppl building other amps as well.

Let me start the list

 

C1

Nichicon Finegold 25v/33uF @ Koba, People's park centre 2nd floor

The right size DxH 12.5x20 for offical PPA PCB in harmond casing

 

C2, C4

Blue 2.2uF/50v polyester unknown brand @ Koba

cheap cap that will fit in offical PCB

 

C3

Wima MPS-? 68nF/63V @ Koba

The right size WxD 2.5x7.5 for offical PCB

 

R10, R11-14

1.43K�6¾8 1/4w, deep blue,unknow brand, good looking, need 4 hole width @Koba

Although the offical value is 1K, but 1.43K is just as fine. 0.1% mean good quality.

 

Q1, Q2, Q3

2N5484 and 2N5486 are available at Farnell.

Federal component in SLT 2nd floor handle them @ $1 each

 

TLE2426

available at Farnell. Federal component handle them @ $3.50 each

 

Buf1

Intersil HA3-5002

available at Farnell. Federal component handle them @ $7+ each for q>10

 

Volume pot

Koba currently (Oct 2005) have some stock of ALPS 27K series 50K stereo Log type potentialmeter. $15 each.

 

please add on to the list by copy the list and then edit it.

How about the main component, the Op-Amp? tongue.gif

 

OPA637 > Farnell ~ SGD 37.5 (after GST), don't know how much in Federal.

 

AD8610, don't know where to get in Singapore, but I prefer the AD8065 over the AD8610.

 

Neutrik Locking Socket > Hung Brothers & LHS ~ SGD 7.5 not glod plated, ~ SGD 11 gold plated.

ah i wish i spoke xnese!

 

if anyone is buying a heap of the buffers let me know. i want to outfit my PPA with 6 of them, so the price for 10+ is a bit much for me! but $1 extra isnt too much.

 

edit: perhaps we could do a group buy for some stuff like the alps pots from china? or if any of you guys are making a dynahi soon maybe we can group buy for transistors/pots?

What we need is a reliable person to coordinate in China. if only you can find one.

dynahi. hahaha.. laugh.gif

in Singapore, I dont even heard a person who makes a Gilmore Dynamic before. Because the parts is so rare. wacko.gif

and it require high skills in DIY also.. those tedious job like transistors matching and stuff. and those massive heatsink.. it's all expensive stuff in Singapore.

 

I think only our Chief DIYer in SGH: firefox can do it. tongue.gif

ah i thought u guys might know someone in china.

 

i just bought some boards for a dynahi in the long future. transistor matching isnt too hard. im just worried about troubleshooting. its a hard circuit to work with by all accounts.
