via this auction

"The Preenfm2 is a DIY project originally designed by Xavier Hosxe.

Due to some obsolete THT components this is reprinted SMD version of original PCB. Having oprtunity to reprint this small but powerful FM synthesizer I`ve added automatic switch between USB or external PSU power source. Audio core and logic part of the synth is unchanged.
