Have you tried any of the other distributors for a better price ? I
think I posted a list a while ago, I think it was for LCR - can't
remember if these are the ones in RS
incidentally I would not be in the least bit surprised if RS didn't
have that many in stock!

Does anyone have any definite findings either way for the need for
equalising resistors in an MMC? I seem to remember seeing a comment
that they were unlikely to help.
