I accidentally failed to add some shipping details after purchase, but Eugene was very response and corrected the mistake immediately. The shipping was fast and the card and components were properly packed. Using the documentation present on this site I ordered the components that were still required to finish the build. Using the BOM and the description, it was a breeze to build - the instructions are clear and the card easy to setup.
I am very happy to have an excellent non-PnP Soundblaster replacement for my vintage computers! Highly recommended!
I purchased the Blasterboard for my XT clone as a Sound Blaster 2.0 replacement. I was targeting OPL2 sound cards with PC-speaker input as many games of the XT era would not produce anything else than the internal PC-speaker sound. The Blasterboard was immediately recognized by DOS games compatible with AdLib and Sound Blaster 2.0 sounds cards and by Mod Master XT which I use to play Amiga mods. What can I say? The Blasterboard works fantastic, the sound is crystal clear, even the PC-speaker sounds less PC-speakerish now. I'm very happy with the Blasterboard and I highly recommend this sound card for anyone needing a great SB 2.0 clone for their vintage computer. Oh, by the way, Eugene is super responsive and the shipping was top notch!

Thank you for your kind feedback! I hope that using Blasterboard will bring you a lot of fun!
Excellent communication from the owner. Also really not bad as far the shipping time (considering it makes a quick stop through customs.) Everything works and all of the measurables are on spec as described. Every bit as compatible as my old sound blaster and I would argue superior in some ways. It's working great in a old DOS build. Just playing old games on an old computer and couldn't find a sound card I liked...UNTIL NOW. :)
Received my order, quick and easy within EU. Quality of parts good, as expected. Not assembled yet (purchased as kit) therefore further testing and feedback after assembly. ***Update*** finally assembled, fully functional, background noise is non existent - excellent design.

Great package, but... where is the assembly notice ?
Hi, The kit arrived very quickly. By the way it was very well protected in its package box and bubble wrap.
One thing seems missing though, or I least I could not find it : Where is the assembly notice ?
Nothing much to say. I'm looking forward to take time to solder it and use it.

Hi, thanks for your review. The github link indeed became broken somehow, but now it is updated. Thanks for pointing that out. You can find it on the bottom of the product page following the "Documentation" link. Regards. Eugene.
