Default My new wooden gainklone

Hi to all,

finally i made my first gainklone. This is inverted configuration amp with only 2 resistors ant 1000uF cpacitors (silmic II) - Peter Daniel minimalist schematic.
Now this amp works from 4 12V akku PS.

I am more then satisfied with sound quality - bright, nice and clear sound. Thats what i can say.

Many thanks to all of you guys for speaking here about your chip amps and impressions. Thanks for inspirations.

some Photos of my amp.

That's very nice work Danius, as is the rest of your hi-fi!

There is something about using wood for hi-fi that looks just right (although I know the arguments against it on safety grounds).

You must be very happy with your Gainclone!

also enjoy the wood cases.

BTW that looks like you are using 4 12V batteries to power the GCs. How long do they last on a charge?

Very nice look and very well done! Are any filter capacitors really needed with batteries for a PS?

thanks, i am really very happy with my gainclone.

i am listening my amp in total 30-40hours and voltage is 12.6V each cell. so akkus are still alive.

leolabs, my english is very bad so i dont know what "holfi" means ???

this amp was made for using it with transformers so i put it with akkus just temporary.
i am planing to make NIGC with only 47uF BGN capacitors and tis akku PS.

anyway this is the best amp i ever heard.

again, thanks to all of you, Peter Daniel, NUUK, Carlos and many others.
