    Default Renard ss group buy

    Does anyone know if there will be another group buy this year for the renard SS boards and BOM?

    We (I) have thought long and hard about this for the past few months. I have even talked with WayneJ about it. Given my current schedule with new products in development and running the day to day of our business I cannot take on another Renard SS Group Buy. I don't feel that I can give the GB the amount of attention that is truly required to pull it off and it isn't fair to you the end user. Last years GB was very difficult to get completed.

    I don't want to speak on WayneJ's behalf but I think he is looking into options and figuring out if he wants to do it or not. If someone else wants to step up and host a GB I will offer my guidance as I have to others in the past.

    I was pleased with the last group buy. I thought it was well planned out. I'm curious to what what it was that was so demanding behind the scenes.

    I know how I do the GB's. I have done them for several years and I have my process that works well. It is very time consuming. Typically 4-6 weeks or more of dedicated free time to sort all the parts. Some parts are easier than others but some are a pain. Last year we had issues with getting transformers, just adds to the workload of finding them. I got them from 3 different vendors to fill all the BOM's.

    The next issue is that you need to have enough interest to move 200 BOM's Just not sure there is enough. If that doesn't happen then the price has to go up to cover the smaller quantity parts orders. I would suggest opening up an "Interest Thread" to see what other people are thinking. At the end of the day that is what matters. There are a lot of used Renard SS boards out there and a lot of people moving to dumb and pixels not using the Renard SS boards as much. The Renard SS is a workhorse and I'm just as guilty because in my peak of using Renard SS's I had about 1600 channels worth but now I'm down to 4 SS 24's and one of those is going away this year.

    So I really would start with an interest thread and go from there.
