Default My vintage look Chip Amp

Hi,

This is my new amp.

It's based on a Brian GT LM3886 Kit with some modifications.

The sound is very good to my ears, this the best power amp that I ever had.

The enclosure is mainly made of wood.

Despite the holes I have made under and over the heatsinks, the temperature grows rather rapidly in the enclosure. I will have to change the back plate layout so that I can have the heatsinks outside.

Some Technical details are available here :

Lack of bass with LM3886

Bye.

Put taller feet under it so you get more airflow. Otherwise it looks VERY nice.

I have the same kit and was able to use internal heat sinks but with a very open bottom. Maybe a slot would be preferable to the holes. And as troystg suggests, the feet are 5/8" high.

Mallard: looks neat. Nice idea to have timber enclosure. I have the same chips but have done nothing with them.
