STK407-050 module alive and kicking
Hello diyers!

This is actually not a chip amp, inside these modules there is a small circuit board with SMT components, transistors, resistors and caps. This will make Franz G happy to see. Tho i feel bad that i have been unable to send him his 10 euro for the shipping :(

Here she is in test bench and going strong :)

And the schemo of the test setup:

To Franz: IŽll get your payment sent as soon as i am on the bank iŽll ask for a exchange to euros.

Try from here ..

These modules sounds really darn good. I changed the module in a amp i had that was a 4132II which had 1%THD to a 5151V that has a THD of 0.08% and slightly higher power, tho the transformer cant cope with that 10w higher power but iŽll never be at that level anyway.

oh well..

The real thing
NOW i have built the real thing on a board, it took about seven hours to do. I noticed i forgot the zobel link when i hooked it up so i have to solder those on tomorrow.

Heres some pics:

Here the baby is plugged in and working like a charm:

I can't see any picture :(

BTW, what is the gain of the amp ? Did you use the 50x that is normally recommended in the schematic ?

If the pics arent working, try right click and click on show picture.

This amp sounds really good and doesent even get warm, tho the transformer i use (from a home cinema receiver) gets honking hot:hot: Its a 450-500VA unit and its set for 240vac in.

A pic of one of these modules inside for those who is interested:

How inportant is the voltage rating on a cap ? I noticed im exceeding the max of 35v om the preamp caps on this amp with one volt, they dont get hot but will it degrade them over time ?

Can't see any picture :rolleyes:

Maybe it's due to the pictures names... I can't see(open) directly in the forum.
To see them, I must copy the picture url and open in a new window. :dodgy:
