Default THDvs. POWER, FREQUENCY

THD graph shows decent absolute values of harmonics distortion at all output powers and frequencies. It's interesting that distortion falls off with the increase of power for frequencies above 200Hz and stays below 0.1%. My guess is that this happens because there is some kind of noise (100Hz) at the output, resulting from imperfect power supply and the star-grounding method used, which is included in measuring THD results (that's why the noise floor reads only -56dBV). But, the most important quality is, IMHO, that distortion is relatively constant throughout the entire frequency range, which ultimately gives very good sonic results.

Default Kn vs POWER/FREQUENCY

Graph with the values of individual harmonics components reveals yet another good side of the amp (again, IMHO) - harmonics values drop uniformly as the factor 'n' increases and this ratio is quite constant for the entire frequency range, regardless of power or load.

Default THD vs. OUTPUT POWER at 1kHz

THD/output signal amplitude ratio Graph, measured at 1kHz (with filters HP 400Hz, LP 80kHz), shows a constant distortion value for the amplitude range 2Vpp to ca 40Vpp (50mW to 20W on 8ohm).

Measurements were made with Neutrik 3337 analyzer (unfortunately, my plotter isn't working so I can't show the original diagrams - I had to draw the graphs myself, based on the results tables).


To be continued ...

Regards

Yes, nice work Moamps! What I like about this hobby is that it doesn't work by just throwing money at it. Half the fun is getting results the cheapest way possible and that requires a bit of thought!

Your transformer screen is brilliant. I have often thought that I would like to live next to the local tip and be able to look through all the things that are thrown away every day. Then I could really build some wild hi-fi

Wonderfull work moamps!
According to the measurements the sound of your amp should be even better than the look. I'm eager to compare it to the "standard" inv. GC and my TDA7294 amp. Listening session ahead!

It seems that His Holiness didn't manage to seriously distract the die-hard croatian audiophiles.
