I'm afraid you linked me the wrong part. I need the blue .22 uF ceramic cap.

Well I suspect the young guy behind the counter is just an idiot. Happend quite a few times I asked him if they got a part in stock, he said no and I found it 5 minutes later by searching myself.. Anyway still happy there is a store like this around in the times of everybody buying anything online 99% of the time.

I have now received confirmation from two people that the kits arrived. Excellent! Have fun!

I also compared the MUS1099 with the OPL2 Adlib replica:

Received my kit yesterday. Hoping to build in within a week or so. Have a bunch of other stuff going on so not sure exactly when I will have a chance to do it.

I received mine on Friday; Canada Post was surprisingly quick with this one.

Now I just need to find time to build it...

I requested a „Nachverfolgungsantrag“ with DHL. Hopefully we will soon know what happened to the package.

Yes, very curious how that played out... 2 weeks of no updates, and once I ask them to track the package down, it is delivered. :-D

Just tested the card , it works but you have to keep the volume pot at a really low level else you get horrible static noises. Touching pins of the amp on the backside affects this so I guess it really is busted? :D

Could be, I had one bad one like that as well. I gave you two, right? I think at least I gave everyone two TEA2025s... You might want to try that one. I ordered from two different chinese sellers, to be on the safe side. Hopefully you have one working. Other than that: They can be had really cheaply, and for the Snark Barker you need one anyway, so you may want to start ordering some off of eBay... ;)
