Course Curriculum

Required Hardware

External resources

This list contains items that I used in this course. You probably already have most of these items, and you can always substitute some of them with items that you do have, or others that you think might work better.

For example, you may choose to substitute the 3.5mm audio jacks for banana plugs instead if you already have banana plugs in your drawers. They might actually work better!

Much of what I used, I did because I happened to have them already in my drawers.

For convenience, you can order these items with a single click from my Amazon affiliate store. You can edit them, including change quantities, once they are copied in your Amazon shopping cart.
