My latest news about the CX5M I've bought is that the eBay seller couldn't find the power supply, but is hoping to find out from her brother before the weekend where the power supply is. I'm still hoping to buy a power supply before Monday (UTC+1 hour), so if both of these options fail, I can confirm with you then that I need this adaptor.

Alright, well, I've ordered the parts and boards they should get here in a couple of days (except the cables, obviously).

AAAAAAAAAAAAA PCBway didn't accept the coupon I had, so the final price per board is now $20 to compensate, plus the shipping (any one of the three options). If this turns anyone off of buying one of these, I don't mind. I wasn't really expecting to make any of this money back anyway, but this is a pretty huge setback now.

At Pcbway the boards are usually 13$ for 10 pieces up to 100x100mm. Shipment may be expensive though, but HK post may be still affordable. Did you try to check the prices at Easyeda?

So how about shipment in a bubbled envelope? How much would that cost? As said, I am not paying 33$ for shipment...

Since my boards are paneled and I went for immersion gold pins on the edge commectors (for repeated insertion), they're considerably more expensive than $13 for 10 boards. (the shipping brought them up to $90 from 63 even though I was SUPPOSED to have a $21 coupon available). The two shipping options on the previous page are the only ones available for bubble mailers/small packages, but they don't have a shipping time specified, so who knows when you'll actually receive them. At least now that I've ordered everything the prices are absolutely final, with the only deciding factor being which shipping method you choose.
So:
Adapter - $20
[6-10 days] Priority Mail Int. Flat Rate small box - $33
[unspecified] "First-Class Package International Service" - $23
[unspecified] "First-Class Mail® International Large Envelope" - $13.10

So, basically it seems that if I pay you a total of US$55 then I could have this adaptor in a certain amount of time, but if I pay you US$43 then it might take much longer, and if I pay you only US$33.10 then it will take longer still. It sounds best to pay the US$55.

I don't understand anything much about how the boards are being made, I just needed to know how much it costs me to get one of these adapters.

NEWSFLASH! I've just bought another Yamaha CX5M with PSU and keyboard, but without any software! It cost only £12.50+£16.00 P&P. This unit has a few keys missing, but is guaranteed working, though. This means that I have now bought two lots of CX5M hardware, so at least one or both of them will work! After this, it means I don't actually need the 60 pin to 50 pin adaptor to use either of the SFG-01 sound modules, but I'll just buy it so I can use one of them with my Philips VG-8235 MSX2 computer. Unfortunately, the SFG-01 isn't compatible with disk drives, so I'd like to see a video by Alexey or anyone about how to cut the original chip out of of of these modules and insert another chip to convert it into an SFG-05.

You need thin wire cutter in order to cut the pins close to the chip's body. Then you need pliers to gently pull the cut pins from the board while touching their soldering points. In this video you can see how this can be done:

And this video shows how to install a chip or a socket:

If you need the programmed chip with SFG-05 bios, this will cost 3 euros + shipment (5 euros).

In the first video I think the relevant part is at 9 minutes 30 seconds in up to about 16 minutes 47 seconds. I don't understand much Russian, although I watched a BBC TV course and had the accompanying book. I don't think I could do anything like that. I have now bought two CX5M computers, each containing an SFG-01 sound module. Assuming both of them work, I suppose I could ask you to upgrade one of them to SFG-05 spec. How much would you charge me for this in total? I'd send you the SFG-01 on its own to keep the postage down.

Let's talk about this via e-mail to avoid spamming here.
