Welcome, uiyga and all the others.

When I was your age... Seriously, I had to make my mistakes on my own. With the help you can get from this forum, you should be off to a flying start.

You won't have had much of a chance to discover it yet, but it's amazing the help people will give you if they think you are already making an effort. Compare and contrast the following two questions:

"Could you design me a circuit to do something that I'm not quite sure about?"

"I worked out the resistor values for making an inverting op-amp with a gain of 3, but when I made it, the chip got hot and nothing came out. Can you help?"

If you're still at school you have access to facilities that are closed to most of us. You have access to physics labs and a mechanical workshop. Take advantage of these! I made my first two pick-up arms while I was at school. It took years before I could afford a lathe to make a replacement...
The loudspeaker: The only commercial Hi-Fi item where a disproportionate part of the budget isn't spent on the box. And the one where it would make a difference...

You're lucky Chris, our teachers give us no in-class opportunities to do our homework, and I have multiple hours a night, and I can't believe how annoying it is, stupid AP courses. Anyway, it seems my progress is limited to the weekends for now. Thanks again!

Default About where to start...

I suggest that you print out and read the construction articles about the Zen amps at www.passdiy.com . They are very good for getting going, not too expensive; possible to scrounge lots of the parts.

The latest incarnation is the Zen IV. The transformer offered here http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...&threadid=9849 would probably work pretty well for a 2-channel version of that amp. The voltage is just right.

good luck, and have fun!
Vince Harris
