Thanks for the kind words.

I'm not 'audiophile certified', so can't comment on the sound in much detail. I've got some expert ears lined up to come around for a listen sometime soon.
It sounds very good to me- good bass and a nice realistic feeling with the right CDs- I tend to listen to small ensemble jazz stuff and the like. Diana Krall, Trio Hadouk, etc.

Cheers
John

Victoria Guy- It's not considered a chip amp per se. Mauro calls the implementation of the LM3886 is a "current pump" not an amplifier.

But it is a very nice job you did.

Thanks for the correction.

Since I've just 'dropped in' from tube-land, any amp with bug-like black rectangular things is a chip amp to me. Gotta mend my ways!

Default Design Problems

Hi
I have seen some inspiring designs in the chip amp photo gallery. Several show the Attenuators mounted at the rear of the chassis with a rod running to a knob on the front.
I have tracked down the inline connector from RS components and the 6mm rod is no problem. What I canít find any ware is a suitable bearing to mount on the front of the chassis to give the knob a good solid feel.
Any suggestions ?

You are looking for something like this. The distributor for the UK is http://www.ctl-components.com/electr...nobs/index.php.

This site shows them but doesn't seem to have them in stock at the moment. It may be worth emailing them.
