Peter support is an incredible added value (I built two Audiosector kits with great success).

That's what I like to hear!

The vendor got back to me regarding my LM3886 woes and is kindly sending me replacement components for free, hopefully I will get it working at some point. I would definitely like to get the Audio Sector kit too though, it would be good to compare them in my system and always having a spare amp is a good thing imo.

I build Peter Daniel LM3875 amp kits long time ago and I can say they are very nice made. The support from him is excellent. I recommend his kits 100%

I can not believe what amazing value for money these kits are. Anyone who thinks these guys are expensive should try pricing the components up

I thought about buying the LM3875 Premium boards and sourcing the same premium spec components here in the UK, i got about half way through the component list when the price including boards exceeded the cost of the full premium kit including postage.

An easy decision, i'll have start saving for the full kit and I have the knowledge that my hard earned will go to good people

Just got to finish my LM3886 my preamp and my passive tone control builds first

Hi!
I made these photos just to share my chassis to my chip amps.
The front and real panels, as well as the covers will be made of plexiglass, white, translucid.
I will also use some damping materials that are not in the photos.
I will post more photos of these amps assembled, when it's ready.
This was sanded in the end with 800 sandpaper and finished with the skin of my hands with a very fine olive oil!

click on the link - if it doesn't work, make copy and paste in your browser.

these boards are not exactly for these transformers, it is just to make the pictures

He does matched sets of LED/LDRs for attenuation.
As a matter of fact, I ordered from Uriah, the preamp,

PROBLEM with caps...

Hello everybody. Finished my kit, and I think I made mistake.

On the power supply board, I soldered 2 caps on the holes marked C1 and C2. 2200uF.
On the amp board, I soldered the 100uF caps


Do I leave the caps on the PS board, I mean the big 2200uF, or do I remove them, knowing that I won't solder the other parts of the snubber ??????
