Just wondering...
 
Nelson how do you make a good sounding amp? The designs you have on first watt are quite varied so it must be hard to follow a general formula you have to create a good amp? You don't go for high power or low distortion. Do you just start playing around with circuits to see how they sound? Does high bias and FETs work for you?

Good ears may be? Some don't have it but believe in it and make use of a panel of good ears. Some don't have it and think that Aleph and gainclone sounds the same :D

You should try "Zen Pot" :D Members in the other thread are talking about it all the time ;)

Go here: Technical Articles

When you get to the top, rince and repeat :)

Read every one of the pdfs starting at the bottom. One of my favorites is "Audio, Distortion and Feedback".

Making amplifiers is all I do, and after 40 years I seem to have gotten good at it.

:cool:

Low Wattage commercial Solid State Single Ended Amplifier Devices
 
There are still a too small selection of finished devices both as integrated amplifier and power amplifier - particularly in the power area between 0,5 watts and 10 watts output power at 8 ohms.
Here examples - currently available - made in Germany:
valvet - just pure music
Audioprojekte - a sense of music
Home André Buscher Audiotechnik - André Buscher Audiotechnik - Puristische Eintaktverstärker (without envelope resp. enclosure, but include power supply - based on a SRPP approach - similar to Aleph with dynamic CCS).
