Default Annoying beginner thread

Hello to all…
I want to build an amp to go with my Alpair7.3 that I need to build FH3 box for (that is for FR forum)…


That said, I missed opportunity to get ACA kit (couldn’t make a payment for some reason)
I was sure I can build that amp, you get all the parts and information, and I got my iron and a multimeter, and no clue about electronic…


Now, should I keep my enthusiasm and go for a real amp F5 (parts are in store), AlephJ (has that balanced thing like my pro amps), or wait for next bunch of ACA?


... or just buy something

Contact Teabag, may still have M2 boards and mosfets, transformers. Easy to build and power up, one of best sounding to boot. Mark Johnson? He may have sold all his? It had rollable front end buffer.

Read M2 thread. Very nice amp. Marks has various different buffers on the front end, may want to read his thread. One of them is good old M2 buffer with getting harder to find Toshiba Jfets. The others use different easier to find parts. By "rollabe" I mean changeable. The buffers are on small cards that attach to main board.

we had small chat via personal messages , and I told him to be careful , taking in acount level of experience in electronics .... to find proper amplifier complete kit, like in old days and actual help (locally) .... be it ACA , or gainclone or whatever

build small first .......... to build always

Not sure why he wants to start with classA amps first. That's not too smart. Most arrive at classA after they burn some cheap chip amps.
Yes, they sound better, but at what cost.
I would advice him to build lm3886 for a start. Not a bad sounding amp. All available, can be done in few hours.
