Sorry no mega power supply on this build. It's a standard build with one pc power supply per channel 19v 3.5A. I am using a toob pre but what you can see next to it in the pic is my Diytube GetSetGo power amp. Will be interesting to compare Jfet to 6B4g SET power....

Hi, my name is Nils. I'm from german and I heard about the "camp amp" in the DIY-newsletter. It sounds very interesting for me, because I'm an absolute beginner.

I built already speakers - at the moment I'm using Fullrange-Open-Baffles and a Ripol-Woofer. My listening room is quite large, but actually 5W should be enough to drive the OB (93dB I guess).

At the moment I'm listening with a MUSICAL FIDELITY A1-X and a MUSICAL FIDELITY CDT ClassA-Tube-Player. And here is my question: If I build the CAMP AMP (and use it together with a good preamp), will it sound better? I mean, can it be a real upgrade?

I ask, because the A1-X sound already very good to me. Most important for me is, that the amp sounds musical/lifely.

Best regards, Nils.

I'm good in asking questions - am I???

But maybe someone can say something more concrete... Are there any reviews in the net? What do listeners say?

Have a nice weekend!!!

you'll be probably surprised with ACA immediacy

even in case that it runs of steam , you can still use A1 for ripoles

A1 is good ........ in fact , more good than mediocre physical execution of it allows ..... but ACA will most probably beat it in liveliness

Brilliant statement IMHO. It's the way to get started, and most people are also startled at how great it sounds. If you do end up making other amps then it might become surplus, but then it 's still very useful for a table top system, computer system, bedroom system, present to GF, present to your dad..

I think of it as the Raspberry Pi of amps....any one know what the R Pi audio applications will be?

Variac,

mplayer and VLC can be configured to run on the RasPi, BUT you need to add in some code to modify the slew rate and something way above my powers of a normal human being.

Raspberry Pi • View topic - ALSA on Raspbian

So far, no Audacity though. VLC will do though.
