As I Tripath shareholder, I am worried...I have made money in the stock right around the time the T-Amp was flying high (it went from 2 to 8 rather quickly before heading down to a mere .04), and it did triple to .179 in a few days last week....classic pump and dump? I think not.

Tripath does have a lot going for it, unfortunately Dr Trapathi may be a better engineer than a businessman...

I am holding out for a Cirrus Logic, TI or Nat Semi buyout, and then we will see some truley great things Tripath...all they need is a little Research and Development money, and a diversion from the financial performance of its stock.

I am a holder, as I like this stuff.

I'll just buy a lot of Tripath stuff, and cross my fingers.

Hi Fin,
I've decided to get one of these, if there are still left. 6amp is a great idea, but still doubt of my skills on handling one of these little amps, so if I break one, better to break a real cheap one. If it's okay and goes on well, who knows, I may do a 6amp or other in the future; )
As I'm very knew in this forum, and probabilly I'm still under moderation, I may enable mail. Try send me mail, if not send thread and see if I can do something.

By the way, The PSU you send by link http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....yphotohosting, did you get it?

If i get a lepai, I'll wait until pano gives the veredict about modding this amp.

Thanks olso for you recomendation thread
bye

Hi Juanito

I've just sent you an email.

Yes - I got two of those SMPS from ebay and they look very neat. I haven't tried them out yet - still using and external power adaptor (laptop computer style) until the case arrives and I get arround to modding and building the amp properly.

I've been talking to the seller of the SMPS about buying a large quantity from him - and then passing them on to fellow DIYers at a really good price - with international shipping etc.

Default Alternate T-amp

The T-amp you mention sounds intriguing. I'm trying to get enough posts to be able to email you. If you haven't had enough takers, I'm interested in buying one.

He doesn't seem too keen to ship internationally. That's whay I'm trying to arrange a largish purchase...then I can pass then on to you at a similar price (or maybe less) plus shipping.
Whow!...I'm a nice guy!

I took these photos last week and forgot to post them!

Here is a top view of the amp where you can see the TA2020 chip under the main board. This amps seems to use the same output inductors as the Sonic Impact. It also uses one on the input as a power filter. Diodes are thru hole as is everything.

Pretty bad build quality - loooks like so much of the junk stuff from the 1970s. But it actually works well - credit to the TA2020 chip!

I don't know what the 8 pin DIP IC does. Haven't looked into it yet. Anyone know?
