OTA - AS3080ED, Linearizing Diodes, Alfa, SOIC-8
The AS3080ED is Alfa’s version of the CA3080 IC in an SOIC package. The AS3080ED is a gain block which is the operational-transconductance-amplifier (OTA). The AS3080ED has differential input and a single-ended, push-pull, class A output. Amplifier bias input may be used either for gating or for linear gain control. High output impedance and transconductance (gM) is directly proportional to the amplifier bias current (IABC). Linearizing diodes are provided at the inputs to reduce distortion and allow higher input levels. The result is a 10-dB signal-to-noise improvement referenced to 0.5 percent THD.
The AS3080ED is notable for it’s high slew rate (50V/µs), which makes it especially useful for multiplexer and fast unity-gain voltage followers.

Nut - Mod® "Top Brass", for Qingpu and other 3.5mm jacks
Mod® "Top Brass" nuts are the easiest way to upgrade your Eurorack module or other 3.5 mm application to a more regal look - we call it "Top Brass". Designed with the same outer dimensions as Qingpu knurled nuts, these round brass nuts will fit any module using Qingpu or other similar metal-bushing jacks without covering up the jack labels. As their name implies, the Mod® "Top Brass" nuts are made out of pure brass, and while they look incredible on their own, their appearance also pairs extremely well with the immersion gold used on Make Noise and other similar modules. Rather than being knurled, Top Brass nuts have a smooth outer edge for a clean look. The nuts are slotted and will work with all existing nut drivers intended for use with the knurled Qingpu-style nuts. "Top Brass" nuts use M6x0.5 threading which matches the bushing on the ubiquitous Qingpu jacks and many of their copies.
