It’s always like Christmas every time a package from Mouser arrives. Now we have lots of Bourns pots in stock, hopefully enough to last through Christmas.

Naked NUs! It’s just like the original Neos with an upgraded preamplifier plus Permalloy shields. There’s lesser pull from the magnets too. The Neodymium magnets are down to 3.5mm from 4.7mm.
