LME49810 300 W amp kit from TaoBao (Mods)

Posted 23rd September 2011 at 07:19 AM by panson_hk

The THD performance of this board can be improved by separate the input/NFB ground from the decoupling grounds. This is a common mistake in many kits.

Simply cut the trace as shown in the figure and connect the input/NFB ground to supply ground via a separate wire. THD improves as shown in the figure.

Home Teather

Posted 20th September 2011 at 02:39 PM by Taskinen

Hi!

I have designed speakers of my own using Dayton Audio loudspeakers (tweeter Dayton Audio 1" Reference Shielded Tweeter, Midrange Dayton Audio 4" Reference Full Range Driver and last but not least, Bass Dayton Audio 8" Reference Shielded Woofer). The reason why I picked these speakers was, that these things are good looking and good combination.

I built the box of 19 mm MDF-wood, 120 mm tall (about 126 mm with spikes), 25 mm wide and 40 mm deep. Volume of the box is around 80 litres. Tweeter and mid has small area of the box and it's filled with lamb's wool. Woofer has over 70 litres of space to and there is 4" Aeroport reflexport in the bottom of the box. With this combination of wooferbox, I really had doubts wheather my choise of woofer had enough raw power to use the space.

I also designed Crossovers by myself, they turned out to be 3. order passive crossovers (100Hz/3000Hz). It was very hard to design, because I...

Tube Rectifier Comparison with SSHV in between

Vin= SSHV input / Vout= SSHV output


Because i am on vacation, i had the time to listen to two other tube rectifier i have.

The question, if there are still differences in sound with different tube rectifiers and the SSHV in between, is

YES !!!

Till now i used the Bendix 6101, a very nice sweet and soft sounding rectifier.

After i roll to the SED Winged "C" 5U3C (5U4-G) Black Plate rectifier,



...someone lift a invisible curtain...



Much more precision in the mids and highs and the soundstage open up in all directions.
Jesus, in comparison the Bendix sounds much to soft!

The Mullard GZ37/CV378 Coke Bottle has also the qualities of the 5UC3 Black Plate,
but is a bit softer sounding.

The only disadvantage of

Salas Board Minikits and Full Kits

Posted 16th September 2011 at 01:37 AM by Tea-Bag
Updated 30th April 2017 at 09:56 PM by Tea-Bag (expanding for all kits)

Here I am going to post some semi-commercial information regarding the minikits.



BIB or SSLV1.1
Make sure to read the full BiB build manual before ordering parts. The link is posted below.
BIB BUILD GUIDE REV2 BY SALAS

It is essential you understand and purchase for the correct voltage type and range you need for this kit and additional parts.

The purpose here is to report what parts are included in the minikit, and which are not.
This will assist builders in getting the correct parts that are not included in the minikits.

The minikits are made for one of the three sections of the PCB. The board itself can hold two positive and one negative rail type supply.

The kits are purely optional, and are sold to assist the buyer who may not be able to access the resources needed to gather the specific parts.

There are four kit types described below. IRF for voltage 5.5v...

Crossover for Vifa Center speaker

Posted 14th September 2011 at 12:59 PM by John_wr

I no longer own this speaker. Unfortunately I don't have all details of component values or the polarity of driver connection.

The F-word - or, why there is no such thing as too much feedback

Posted 8th September 2011 at 02:55 PM by jan.didden
Updated 8th September 2011 at 02:59 PM by jan.didden

Well, I did already a blog on feedback, it's uses, misuses and misconceptions. But there is someone who can explain it much better than I can, someone who has proven that he really understands what's going on in a feedback amplifier. Someone who knows what the terms 'fast amplifier' and 'slow amplifier' really mean (and what not). Enter Bruno Putzeys, who wrote the article with the subject name in my bookzine Linear Audio, Volume 1. I feel that this is such an important matter for audio that I decided to place it online for free download. You'll find it at Linear Audio | your tech audio resource under the tab Online resources.
Enjoy the ride, and do let me know what you think about these issues.
