I for one don't hate you for saying that. It all seems to be about the bells and whistles, ie. preamp inputs, lights, aesthetics, etc.

For me, I ripped all my CDs to 320kbps mp3, and sold the CDs. I'll admit I kept some as FLAC, Dark Side of the Moon for example. I'm not really into 5.1, 7.1 surround anymore, been there, done that. I use my PC as the source (Winamp) and I could not be happier with the sound, although when I finish my 5 watt/channel SE tube amp & 99dB speakers I may be even happier ;-).

If one were to build one of the LM3886 amps and use it with a decent set of speakers, with a good low end, you will not be disappointed.

Admitting to stealing on an open forum is a good idea how?

Only allowed to copy or rip if you OWN the original. And then only "one" copy as a "backup" in case the original is damaged.

Not my rules... Blame the bean counters...

Default Redshift DC servo

Hi!
Here is my implementation of LM3886. You are wondering why cooler is on the bottom side, well the amp will be runnig on +-24V so it will be barely warm.

Regards Aleš

Aleš-

That looks like an opamp buffered GC.. Where did you get the PCB's and who's design?

Oh BTW, it looks very good!

It's not buffered, this is design with DC servo, which I recomend beacuse it sounds so much better than the ordinary one. The boards are from Redshift187.
