1) you would never even know if the cap was in backwards or not, it is extremely hard to know the difference in sound.

2) run 2/3 shielded wires from your input right to the board, depending if you are running balanced or line level. then run your 3 wires for your power right to the psu board. twisting / braiding really helps.

3) i can post pictures later on when i arrive hoe if you wish. I run 4 of these amps ( smd ) ones tho.

Hello,

j'am,just starting to realize a 5 channel Mini A with PCB and PSU from chipamp. It is the most beautifull pcb j have never seen .
One small problem, impossible to find in europe the small resistances.

The project is :

2 transformers 300VA, 2x15V (one for front two channel and one for the others tree channel)
4 PSU board (2 for the front channel, 2 for the 3 others channel)

As j am a beginner and as j have read a lot of thread with the impression that everybody do not speak always about the same schématic and references of resistors j am a bit lost.

Can you help me

Accordind to the part list from the site :


R6 optional, for closer matching of Q1 and Q2

R12 : 750 initial value, could be optimized for expected power/load conditions
R13 : 47.5K initial value, could be optimized for expected power/load conditions

R17 : 100 initial value, could be optimized for expected power/load conditions


j would like to have a bias about 1,3 with something like 18-20V with my 2X15V transformer.

Could you tell me the values for R6, R12, R13 and R17. Do j have others componants to change the value.

in this configuration, could you tell me what would be the best configuration in order to connect the psu board, which value for the res of the psu (pi filter), what kind of condensator and value at the end of the psu. If it is necessary, j have others psu boards in advance.

Thanks a lot and excuse me for my poor english, j hope it is clear?

FYI, I have more of black Aleph pcb sets, and put them back up on the website for $9 a pcb set.

(set still includes 2 amp boards and 4 output device boards)

Here is the parts list that I generated back in 05 when the first run of boards were made:
http://www.chipamp.com/diyaudio/mini...parts_list.xls
Let me know if you spot any issues, and I can correct it. I built a set of MiniA amps with the list, and had no issues.
Here is a newer one that I found that has a bit more detail:
