Part Lists (international)

The parts on this page are those I’ve found either by browsing the web sites of international parts distributors, or by combing through messages on online forums. Except in cases where the same part is listed in the North American parts list, I haven’t tried these parts myself.

Some of these parts are optional, in the sense that the amplifier will work without them. See the Part Selection Guide for advice on choosing which parts to leave out, if any.

This is a work in progress. If you have any parts you think I should add to it, please let me know.

Some other places to get parts that you may want to look at:

Conrad Electronic — Germany

Reichelt Elektronik — Germany

Schuro Elektronik — Germany

Audiokit — Italy

Elfa — Sweden

THLaudio — Taiwan

Maplin — UK
