Default Do you still have?

Hello, I have some questions for you guys!

1) When did you build your "chip amp"?
2) Do you still have it?
3) Do you like it? (well if you still have ...you must like it)

-I build mine more than a year ago!
-Yes, I still have!
-are you kidding me? ( I sleep with it...lol)

1) The first one I ever made was buit in '98 I think, with two A2030H. I think those were TDA2030's made in Germany.
2) Somebody loved it more than I did so it went gone (in other words it was abducted).
3) Now I use a LM3886, quite happy with it.

Puffin, your one married with you or it cheated? In romanian slang, "to marry something" means "to fool somebody and get rid of it", is that the case also in UK?

1) In 1975 built one with a TDA2020. Something went seriously wrong and the top surface of the chips melted down on power on. A mystery until this day. Sadly, there were no forums where a newbie could ask lame questions.
2) No i don't have it anymore
3) I would have loved if it played for only a minute.


A couple of months later built another one with TBA810. Worked fine with absolutely no issues. Sadly, there were no forums where a newbie could pronounce it as the best amp ever. A year later bought a Sony which ran the chip amp into the ground.
