seabass-

It looks a little cramped in that case... :-)

Actually I like the wood top, very pretty.

Brute force construction.
This amp is a gift for mother in law... she will never see the inside

The heatsink sits over three holes that lines up with the holes in the top.
It uses Rod elliot P05a PSU and the second version of his hifi preamp with balance and volume control using opa2132.


it is a bit of a mess, I was just going to put the little veroboard IGCs in and a PSU and well, you see what happens... once I liked the sound enough, I left it as is, the wires is a mess as they have to be pushed to their right places as you push the box together the rear slides in like a drawer

It is a pseodo-plywood... I got the outer layer as offcut strips from the DIY shop and sanded them smooth. the wood is very hard and polishes to a shine with 60 sandpaper- I went to 1200

Because of the limited material ( I literaly had a piece as big as my hand left when I was done), I made an unusual constructrion.

The box is made of 5 sides the 3 outher sides have thick marineply boards underneath, the top is 3mm ply with the "veneers" on top.

The rear slides in and has those beveled tops to keep it in position.

I was going to come back to the case to add some vents, but with those giant heatsinks it hardly goes above ambient for a very long time.

Earth decoupling network is with the transformer, as this is offboard...

Default Top Plate GC 3875

Took awhile to get the parts but it went together quickly. Had to as it was going to be making music for a party. Took about an afternoon. Sounds good and still have a lot to do to it yet.
