You are very generous, this seem like a great idea to me. thanks, I will be looking forward to how this evolves.

I give up Pal ! I'm lower in the food chain than an 'absolute dummy'. You can't say I didn't try.

I will be looking forward to your guide, so don't give up,

Peter and others are clearly at another level, but I appreciate and respect their willingness to help us...

Just send me an e-mail with the address and you will get the board.

The online manual is a bit outdated and the proper thread could be a good idea for new updates and instructions on GC building.

As Gychang said - "No schematic - ' red wire to ... ' "! When you're done post the whole thing at once and sit back and field questions. If you have done it properly there won't be many! From that point it ought to turn into nothing but a newbee watering hole. The Author can sit back and daily pat himself on the back. It very simply should not take 100 hours of reading and going from site to site to build a GC.
Bluto,

Yesterday i build a gainclone (audiosector), it pretty darn easy... hard to go wrong if you follow the manual. Why not challenge yourself, buy the kit, build and document it, post your story here and pad yourself on the back? You don't need to be an expert to do that!

cheers,

c

EDIT: hmm a lot can happen in a few minutes .. missed the post above

It started raining - no work again today.

Culture -

What should have been a simple thread turned into a novel. As for me I don't think this would be any great challenge despite people who CAN'T READ getting that impression. I really have no desire at all to pat myself on the back either.

All that was desired was stated within about 4 posts of what is now over 200. One guy stepped up to the plate ( Dan) and the rest has been a peeing contest.

With Peters new offer I'll be hopefully giving Glory to 2 teams. I'm taking him up on his offer and I'm still going to build Dans Amp when He says it's ready to build and will offer him whatever assistance I can if he asks.

There was never any need for this to be cause of divisiveness or confusion.

I recognize the spirit of your post and appreciate it. I may just document my own build for myself , give it to my Grandkids with a copy of this thread and show them how to build an Amp and still avoid trivial disagreements.

Thanks -

Bluto

Hi Peter!

The amplifier boards can be easily assembled in just a few minutes, however. . .

The only hard part that I see is the dual rectifier power supply board. Specifically, there can be questions between the Audiosector board and a different manufacturer's product--the transformer.

Of course, a beginner could grab the digital camera, and then zoom on over here to diyaudio.com, post the photo along with "is it hooked up right?" question and then the rest is smooth sailing from there.

That has been addressed already under "Modyfying dual bridges into single bridge" link:

Peter -

Your offer is generous and for your sake I hope that all who had been lurking and not willing to get involved in what at times became unpleasant don't all jump up now and request a PCB.

This also gives you the opportunity to kill 2 birds with 1 stone and update your manual. Will you be doing this in such a way that input from newbee builders will go into a new manual if you see such as desirable?

In addition to that it puts to bed at least for your Company my statement wondering out loud if Kit manufacturers preferred to avoid newbee business by not making their materials ' less than absolute dummy' understandable.

I'll still be building Dans design when He's ready and I hope that those who have participated to this point don't see this as a reason to bail out on the efforts he's made. This is also opportunity to put your money where your mouth is when those who stated countlessly that they really weren't against his efforts even if their posts sounded as such.

Thank You Peter.

Bluto

This one is good too, although you might not really need the caps.

Even with my boards, the small caps on rectifier board are optional and it's recommended to assess the sound with and without them.
