ok, time to light up a "ready" LED!

Hi Paolo

You idea makes sense to me. I guess a test setup is essential to determine if it really works well in real life. But no leds please

I am running a Rev A with my full range 15 ohm Lowthers in a folded TQWT. Works great.
Tried it Sunday on a Daedulus or close speaker. The is a five driver unit with maybe four crossovers. It also sounded great. The owner of these maybe was being nice, but said it was as good as he had heard the speakers sound.
It sure could play loud. I estimate it was playing in the 90 - 95 dB range. Much louder than I listen at home.
BTW, those are nice speaks. Dovetail construction and solid wood cabinets, not plywood. Too many drivers for me though. I am happy with one.

OK beta testers, I have looked the boards over the best I can, I don't see any reason not to order them. Please remeber you are beta testing prototypes, and while the circuit is well tested, this PCB design is new, so while I fully expect it to be just fine, there could be problems I cannot see. So please be diligent and review the layout.

Here is the list of beta testers:

SmellOfPoo
rabstg
hayenc
Brian Donegan
saltnpeppah
maf_au

All I can manage right now is sending the PCBs, but I will try to work one on one with a couple of you to get you the things you need.

I have each of you down for 2 boards apiece,

If you want more than 2 let me know its no problem, just let me know.

The cost will be as follows

Each board is 10.50 with shipping to me.
So two will be $21.00 even plus shipping costs.

I will figure $5.00 to continental US and $6.00 everwhere else as long as I can send it airmail post or Global Priority.

Please email me with any comments and for payment details.

Once I have all the payments lined up I will order the boards.

Cheers!
Russ

Lightbulb complete kit option???

Hi Russ,

just like maf_au, even i have some problems sourcing caps and some parts... is there a possibility that you could maybe offer a complete kit?

I really am eat up with this kind of thing. All parts are matched up as closely as possible in every circuit I build.
Here the LM318 and LM3886 are not matchable. These are THE most important parts. But the voltage on the zeners is next. Build a simple power supply and use a resistor to measure the voltage of the zeners. Absolute votage is not critical, just match all four per amp to achieve a little better balance.
Also if anyone wants to spend the money, I have a source for 0.01% Vishay S102 resistors. They are not 22K and 47K. They are 22.5K and 50K. I looked at Newark and these are 17.00 each. Locally they are 3.00.
I am way too slow to do the beta test. It will take me a month to build an amplifier. The production boards will be out before I finish a beta.
One more request, can the hole size be increased for some of the resistors? The ones in the relay control are too small for my old style Holcos. Here it is not critical, but the H2 and H4 have the same diameter leads.
Also the input resistors and feedback. I have 1/4 watt AB carbon comp for these that fit, the 1/2 watt are easier to source.
