Default Breadboard fun!!

Been working on some audio related projects for school (I'm an electrical engineering student).

I've seen this forum before, and today I had the opportunity to play around with a TPA1517 which I got from TI (yay for free samples .

This is a nice little chip, needs only 12 volts and does about 6 watts. The 20 Pin DIP version fits perfectly on a standard breadboard, and doesn't need a heatsink if you're careful with it.

I hooked it up to these Realistic Minimus 5s I had lying around, and WOW, the sound is INCREDIBLE. These speakers can be incredibly bright on the wrong system. I'm using an EMU 0404 PCI as my source.

Now it's time for bed, lest I stop listening to this song

I built a small amp with one of those on a chunk of copper-clad board..
Mebbe I'll go take some pics of it later.
