Default MPS7720 DIP08 Chip

Are these worth looking into? A DIP8 chip with a Cmoy simple circuit.. 20W @ 4 ohm 9-24V?

How do they sound? I guess that's the big question...

Oh well, so much for DIY....How can you do it yourself better than this..

The chip goes for $2.18 each...With $8.00 Handling + Shipping + Tax...

That's over $12 for the chips alone???

So, the next thing is to Hear how it Sounds...

Anyone heard one of these??...

I posted in the other thread, but it kind of sucks stock. You should grab another one and go BTL, or try a hand at a dual supply design, but that would complicate things a bit more.

TI's webpage offers tpa3122d2 in a
20pin DIP.

15W+15W, bridgeable... PDF seems
to suggest 40W into 8ohm 28V BTL
is quite reasonable.

Around 4 bucks last I looked, I dunno
which distributor or shipping to use...

I would suggest solder to a PCB with
a heatsink worthy ground plane.
The DIP boards I have worked with,
did not use a socket. I suspect that
decision to solder was intentional.

http://focus.ti.com/docs/prod/folder...tpa3122d2.html

I've never tried MPS, I could not compare.

And to be fair, I rarely ever crank the
power supply past 12V unless a test
procedure calls for it. Its just too loud.

In my opinion, yes.

I was never able to obtain samples of the DIP8 package, only the SO8 package.

The MPS7720 Amp arrived, 6 days from Hong Kong to NJ....Not bad...

It sounds nice right out of the box, smooth and tight with none of that 'new chip' harshness. It has plenty of punch on 14V and I'll let it burn-in for a while.

The only issue I've found is a really odd Cap discharge sound when turned off...Kind of Ray Gun like.

No big deal, but it would be nice lessen it.
