nycavsr2000 & lanchile:

The irony is that the appeal of decent stereos is withering -- not dying, perhaps, but certainly not flourishing in a world where iPods, cell phones and other tiny "personal" devices are supplanting better-sounding music reproduction systems. And you're also right about the male dominance of this hobby. It was a lot of fun designing the Jade (Jamie And Dad Experiment) amp, and I can only hope that my music-loving daughter's experience inspires her (or another young woman) to take it a step further.

Regards,
Scott

Actually my daughter turns 14 next month. I built her a pair of 6.5 " two ways and am working on her Mauro My Ref Rev_C amp now.

A couple of years ago I bought her a docking station for her iPod and she loves it and uses it daily. I think it sounds like crap but didn't want to ruin the experience for her. Now that she has had it a while I am going to crush the rest of her life by giving her a "good sounding" system.. She will never again settle for crappy TV sound or "stereo in a box" hi-fi... I don't know if being "enlightened" to good sound is a blessing or curse.

:-)

Either way the J.A.D.E looks beautiful.

Nice and simple. Looks nice man. Congrats
Do you have an on/off switch? I see that film cap and makes me think there might be one in there but I dont see it.

Welcome,

Here is one easy way to get started. (see link below) I built mine using one of these boards. You provide the heat sink, enclosure, transformer, and a few I/O connectors and you are there. The one I built sounds fantastic!

Default ebay Chip Amp Cards -A Positive Review

Yes as long as you build it correctly these boards sound amazing. For 17 each including shipping they are a fantastic way to get started with GC. I have just bought 2 more for some friends who have heard my amp and want to build one. Having said that I am just starting one of Peter Daniels Kits. It will be interesting to hear the difference.

I am sure the Peter Daniels one will win with a purer signal path. I am adding extra smoothing to get the best bass I can out of it.

I don't know about "win", those NE5532s are pretty sweet! Here is the transformer I used: Parts-Express.com:*Avel Y236750 330VA 25V+25V Toroidal Transformer | TRS transformers transformer toroidal transformer toroidal toroid mounting kits kit gauge copper avel

You can see my build at Post # 1250 back a couple of pages.

I use my laptop as the source and use the EQ built into my soundcard along with the EQ in Winamp.

I built these speakers to go with it: Vifa 2-Way Loudspeaker System
(use the modified L-pad values)

This setup is highly recommended for a compact system and the dynamic range produced is just pure magic.

Don't hate me for saying this, I couldn't tell the difference between it and my NAD C340 or Rega Brio. They all sound great to me. I think it would be an ideal amp for multichannel, so small.
