Expert Sleepers ES-1 pre-order thread

Post by os » Wed May 26, 2010 2:35 pm

Edit - this thread is no longer active.

ES-1s are currently (Sept 14th 2010) out of stock. When stock comes back in purchasing will be via an online store and via Analogue Haven (http://analoghaven.com/expertsleepers/es-1/).


cheers,
os.


----------------

Please post below to register your interest in one of the first batch (of 15) ES-1 modules, which should be ready for shipping towards the end of June.

All the details are here:
http://www.expert-sleepers.co.uk/es1.html

Prices will be:
* DB25 inputs - (edit: see below)
* Jack inputs - (edit: see below)
* Module only (no panel or input connectors) - £85

Postage will be £5 in the UK, £10 in the rest of the world.

Payment will be by PayPal only. Note - no money will be taken at this point. This will be just a statement of interest. Only when I have the units in my possession, tested and working will I accept actual orders.

The prices above are in UK Pounds. PayPal will convert your local currency in pounds for you.

The main point of this is to know how many of each variant (jack, DB25) to make.

Please continue to post even if all 15 have gone - if the first posters let me down, I'll use this thread as a waiting list. It would also be useful to have an idea of how many more might be required in the future.

Thanks for your interest!

Edit: The first batch is now long gone. This thread is now a generic pre-order thread.

Edit: The Jack version is now £130. See viewtopic.php?t=19144

Edit: From 11/8/2010 the DB25 version's MSRP is £110. Pre-orders taken before this date will honour the old price.

I am interested in a module only

best,
julien

PS: just in case, does it require strong soldering experience ? Or is it just a matter of soldering connectors on the board ?

I have a 2408mk3 Motu soundcard, I do need a bit more voltage to fully open the filter on the Pro 1 and Odyssey.

Just to confirm, this module is just to boost voltages and not so you can use any soundcard that is not DC coupled (I think not Dc coupled is correct for cards like the ADA8000).

If this module would suit my 2408mk3 then put me down for just the module (as I'll wire it direct to the patch bay).

It performs both of these roles.

The output jacks are supplied soldered onto the board; the input connector is on a 26 way header, like this:
http://www.rapidonline.com/sku.aspx?tie ... ef=19-0520

So to connect the inputs, you need some ribbon cable and an IDC plug, like this:
http://www.rapidonline.com/sku.aspx?tie ... ef=19-0315

Or, unsolder the header and wire the inputs directly to the PCB. I wouldn't recommend that though.
