Make the right choice.

Do It Youself'ers face challenges selecting the right gear, creating connectors and wiring harnesses and the vital the selection a clean power solution. Even if you do everything "right", it is possible to end up with a noisy system due to ground loops and virtual ground issues. There are a number of other pitfalls if you don't have a good plan as you go along.

We're seeing a striking number of new people in the hobby, and many may be unfamiliar with the risk of working around the electronics. We have concerns over the potential to wire up in a way that does damage to your CPU node / amplifier board. We've also had many calls from guys who have made mistakes or made "creative" decisions and have ended up with some pretty significant damage to their CPU ($500-$800 repair / replacement cost). Some of the cheap Chinese stuff out there is pretty low quality and more importantly, lack sufficient testing and screening to ensure that you don't put your electronics in jeopardy.
