Unhappy My 2+1 project; FAILED!

Hi all,

Finally i finished my LM1876 based 2+1 (its a long story) project last night at 02:00 AM... And with a big excitement, i pushed the power switch! In half of a second everything i made has blowed with a big blast. Everything has gone to the otherside Because my (nonisolated!) mains input connections were very very close to rectifier output terminals (in fact they were floating) and while i pushing the power switch.......
Thanks god i'm alive but i lost my one month work.
For the conclusion i can say;

- Do not work after midnight with a naked mains cable. Especially while youre drunk!

Have a nice day...

alkohol + music listening
might not mix too bad

but
alkohol + amplifier work & set up
is not to recommend

as well as
alkohol + car driving
is a danger to human lives

you'll be back with MK2 of your amp project - for sure
maybe something to do for X-mas holiday ...


lineup does seldom take alkohol and not too much, of that poison

Sorry to hear that.

When I finish a project I always leave it 'till the next day before doing a last check and power up. It's amazing what errors you can pick up when you come back fresh.

Learn from our mistakes eh

Glad you are OK, and I hope you don't give up just yet! Next time don't be drunk though! That might have been a bit of a silly idea!

And always use a light globe (40-100w) in series with the mains when testing new equipment.
