Keeping fingers crossed that one day Somali pirates release our card from hostages and it'll go back on track...

I don't think I've been on this thread for a few months. What's this about Somali pirates?!?!

Just moaning about how long the test card has been in the post, we guessed pirates because the card had to go by sea! 🤣

Exactly. Moreover, we don't expect to build more than 30 cards given their very high overall cost, so it will be a very niche product for those who just think that a regular AWE64 is simply not enough.

I'm not sure what the final cost will be, but if it's OPL3, soundblaster digital and HardMPU then it would have to be very expensive to only have 30 people wanting one.

We're trying to keep it under $100 for a bare naked PCB. No kits, just the PCB.

I just wanted to drop back in and say that I want one, regardless of cost. I need it for my situation, in order to have a card that simply works with everything. My AWE32 dying and needing replaced with an inferior one has been terrible.

Just a bit of patience, guys 😀
Right after we crossed our fingers for the pirates, they've released the card and it tracked as shipped on June 11. Once it arrives and we finish the tests, we'll order the production boards.

Sounds great! I am just worried that the will be bought up before I can get one. I have reserved some cash in order to buy one.

Lol!

We'll provide 2 options:
a. Fully assembled and tested board
b. Loose PCB without any other parts at all, for your procuring and soldering pleasure 😀

What's with all the raptors? Utahraptor, Nitroraptor and myself? (I'm a Jurassic Park Velociraptor, not a fossil record accurate one)

Do you expect it to be easier for us to obtain a PCB version or an assembled one? I have bought a donor card already in anticipation. I'm, like many other people it seems, super keen to get one!

We don't have any plans for mail-in rebates of CT4520s, however, if we run out of assembled cards due to lack of our own donor cards, and the demand for blank PCBs is lower than estimated, we'll reconsider this. Just a bit of more patience, please 😀

Very much interested in this as AWE 64 gold prices are getting stupid so I'm better off getting a newer better card. Watched the video and I have to say, the board is beautiful. Looking forward to this!
