Full ESP Pricelist|
Your product purchase supports The Audio Pages, and is the only way that this site can continue. Without your purchase, the articles and projects will cease to exist, as the cost of maintaining the site would be prohibitive without any way to pay for the site, its maintenance and ongoing project development and refinement. Some articles and projects featured on the site have incurred considerable expense, and your purchase helps to allow this to continue.
My thanks to all those who have bought (or are planning to buy) project PCBs or other products. Without you, The Audio Pages would be no more. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
Please Note: This service is temporarily unavailable (28 June 2019). It will be restored as soon as possible.
For anyone who would like one of the ESP projects but is unable or not confident in their ability to buy the parts and assemble the board(s), there is a service available that you can use. Details will be provided when it's available again.

|ESP Loyalty Programme|
ESP's loyalty programme has been operating since 2005, and many discount vouchers have already been delivered and redeemed. Click the link above for more information about the programme, redeeming discount vouchers, and the terms and conditions for earning 'loyalty points'. A Discount Voucher will be issued when your total PCB purchases reach AU$200.00 (Note that this specifically excludes pack + post or other postal or delivery charges as may be applicable).
|On-Line Construction Info & Terms and Conditions|
When boards or other products are ordered, you will be sent a URL, Username and Password to access the board construction articles. The latest information is available on these pages, and you will be able to see the information for the boards you have purchased as well as the other construction articles. Please click on the button in the header to read the full details.
The Construction Pages are only accessible with a username and password that you will be given when you have ordered and paid for PCBs. It includes all current boards, and has an archive section for older PCBs. There is also a data section with quite a few datasheets, predominantly for devices used in the projects. This information in its entirety is provided for your benefit, and must not be shared with any third party!
Please note that failure to read the agreement is considered to be your full acceptance of the terms and conditions shown.
|How to Purchase|
There are several options for purchase, and all are quite straightforward. Please click on the section header for the full details. ESP accepts Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Australia Post and Western Union money orders and direct bank deposits (note that direct deposit is only available for Australian residents).
On-line purchase is available from the PayPal Cart page, however this method cannot be used for purchases within Australia. The other methods provided have worked well for many years. When sending your card details, make sure that your details are entered on the order form or the Encrypted Form. Order forms are not required if you pay using PayPal. For those who do not have access to a fax machine, the order form can be sent as a password protected PDF (scanned or printed directly to PDF). You must send me a separate email with the password for the PDF!
Sorry, no American Express or Diners Club
PayPal Info Western Union Info
Use the AU$ board prices listed - your credit card will be billed in Australian Dollars, and the final price that appears on your card statement is determined by the exchange rate prevailing when the card details are processed. Click on the button in the header for more information, currency conversion details, etc. All orders are sent using Australia Post services, insurance is optional, though not usually needed. For those countries where insurance is really needed, it is not available. (I didn't make the rules, so please don't ask.)
If you wish to pay using USD (American Dollar) funds, you must use PayPal. I cannot bill credit cards in any any currency other than AUD.
|It is important that you understand that all orders require a customs form. For most orders this is the worldwide standard CN22 form, and the customs value of your order is shown on the form. This is the cost of the PCBs, and doesn't include postage. Most orders pass straight through customs with nothing to pay, but occasionally a sufficiently demented customs 'officer' may decide that import duty and/or VAT (or its equivalent) must be paid before you can collect your order. The amount charged is not always sensible, and it's important that you understand that ESP has absolutely zero control over what your country's customs people do. I always include the CN22 form barcode number in the order confirmation email. This is not a tracking number, but can be helpful if an item is delayed.|
Currency conversion is at the mercy (or otherwise) of PayPal, and their conversion rate is invariably lower than you'll find on the Net. I also have to pay PayPal fees, and this is the reason that the USD prices sometimes appear somewhat higher than you'd otherwise expect. There are additional fees incurred for payments that are converted (by PayPal) from GBP (British pounds), Euros, or other currencies.
Please Note ... For overseas customers, cheques (or 'checks') are not acceptable. Any cheque drawn on a foreign bank requires a special trip to the bank, incurs (often very heavy) fees, and makes the process completely uneconomical. No other online merchant accepts foreign cheques, and ESP is no different. I realise that this may be inconvenient, but it is also necessary because of the huge impost on my time (plus I receive far less than the order is worth).
For local customers, please note that the Australian dollar price must be used for all orders. A personal or bank cheque is acceptable - but goods will not be shipped until the cheque is cleared. The preferred payment methods are Visa, Mastercard or Australian Post Office money order.
Australian residents using PayPal must use the AUD price, and payment must be in Australian dollars. Goods are sent using Australia Post. You cannot use the PayPal Cart (sorry), so just add up the total for the boards you need, include AU$5.50 for postage and do a PayPal money transfer.
|Shipping And Documentation|
Boards are normally shipped in a padded postal bag via normal airmail, and this is at the rate shown in the price list. Where possible, orders are sent as 'large letter' in a padded bag. CN22 customs forms are required by Australia Post for the padded bags when they include 'merchandise' (your PCBs). The customs form barcode is sent to you along with order confirmation, as it may help if there is a postage delay.
When larger orders are posted, at ESP's discretion they can be sent as a 'standard' parcel, which includes tracking. It seems that Australia Post's prices were determined by blind monkeys and a dart board, and parcels are very expensive. Express Post or international courier prices generally scare off anyone who asks. Click on the button in the header for more information.
Where registered mail (Australia), courier or insurance (RoW - Rest of World) is requested, the fee shown in the pricelist is in addition to pack and postage charges.
In common with the postal services in most countries, normal airmail post does not include any form of tracking. If you want the ability to track your order, you will have to use the courier option. Please do not ask for tracking numbers if your package is delayed, because there isn't one unless you pay for it. If you do pay for international courier, I will send you the tracking number. All international postage requires a CN22 customs form, and the form number will be sent with confirmation of your order. It is NOT a tracking number, but may be useful if your order is delayed by customs.
Please Note: Orders less than AU$50.00 (excluding pack and post) may not be insured except by prior arrangement.
Please see the pricelist for more information about pack and post options.
Some boards have relatively small tracks and closely spaced components. These require a fine tipped soldering bit (preferably temperature controlled), and careful soldering techniques. If you are new to soldering components into a PCB, please exercise caution during construction, as it is possible to damage the board with excessive or prolonged heat.
All goods are checked before shipping, but it is possible that a defective board or disk may be supplied. The boards are warranted to be free from defects that would make them unusable for the intended use. Such boards will be replaced free of charge or a refund given upon receipt of the defective board(s). Click on the button in the header for more information.
ESP regrets that if you change your mind, returns are only available under some conditions. Full details are available by clicking on the button in the header above.
Package losses are extremely rare, but for shipping to some countries insurance is highly recommended. Please see the price list for the most up-to-date information I have available. More information is available by clicking on the button in the header.
Load the HTML form, save a copy of the text form, or download the order encryption program. Please fill in all sections. Print a copy of order form to mail or fax, or e-mail the encrypted order.
Printed order forms (only) can be sent by FAX to a secure machine. Please do not send cover sheets or other un-necessary sheets - all needed information is on the order form. Printouts intended for fax must be printed (or neatly hand printed) in black, because fax machines do not handle blue very well.
Please Note: ESP's FAX Number has changed ! The facsimile number is ...
By including your address, I will cut and paste it into the order. This is a lot faster than trying to read a blurry fax, and eliminates transcription errors. I will also send confirmation by return e-mail. Because e-mail addresses are often very difficult to read on the faxed form, I don't even try to decipher them unless there is a problem with the order. Even that is regularly impossible if the fax quality is bad enough !

Pricelist Version 1.44 - 01 Jan 2018
* See general notes for more information.
Note that the price list is updated only when there are changes or additions. While it may appear 'old' much of the time, this simply indicates that there have been no price changes or additions to the list. Unless otherwise indicated, everything on the price list is in stock at all times. On the odd occasion a PCB may be out of stock, but unless the price list indicates nil stock, replacements are due within a few days at most.
Should this be the case when you place an order, I will advise you and your card will not be charged until I can supply everything at once.
|Note Carefully: If you don't see the board you want here, then it is (probably) not available. The pricelist page describes all boards
currently for sale, and if it is not listed there, I don't have it (this page is occasionally a little behind). Also, do not ask for artwork - refusal is guaranteed. In some
cases I have been asked because "it is difficult to get boards shipped to [wherever]". While this may well be true, I will not supply my original artwork to anyone for any reason.
Likewise, for the few projects that don't show component values, this information is available only with the purchase of the PCB for the project.
Boards are supplied as a blank PCB only - no components or other parts are included. Please do not ask about kits, as these are not available, nor are heatsinks, transformers or other components not shown in the price list.
Some items listed are only available along with a PCB purchase - see the pricelist for full details.
