Default Philips 40/25/15 watts amplifier with Universal preamplifier circuit.

my dear DIY brothers

this is regarding a circuit developed by Philips in 1970's. it is a 40/25/15 watts amplifier with Universal preamplifier circuit. it was very popular in DIY groups at that time. it use to give a very good quality of sound, eventhough it was a AC coupled amplifier. originally the output transistors are BD182. but most of the people used with 2n3055.

do anybody have the circuit diagram. i got some printed circuit boards without circuit diagram.

regards
renjish

Those who had the diagram are now in their late fifties and don't login at DIYAUDIO.com. They have enough problems of their own and will definately not take the trouble to scan the diagram and post it here.

To make the story short, dump that over 3 decade old pcb, search the net and make yourself a new design power amp.
2N3055 is an old transistor by design and does not sound good. There are many that sound good and are easy to install.
Go to the site sound.westhost.com and u will find preamp circuits that will work equally good.

Default Encourage yourself...

to assemble something better or learn the hard way. When u compare this with the never products, only then u will know the reality.
This circuit was sunding good in seventies.

It is good to see DestroyerX has put up the circuit details. He is always and ever-ready to help.

But...
from your post I get it that just because u have the PCB, u want to assemble it. Remember in today's standards, this circuit stands nowhere. One reason is that it uses a single supply which needs an output capacitor for coupling the speaker.This sounds bad. I can see other reasons also but I am not competent enough to explain.

Select a good sounding circuit depending on your power requirement and go for it.
If u are in metro, it is easy to get a quality pcb made or make yourself one with the toner transfer method.

Or simply draw the tracks on a laminate using nail polish/oil paint and etch it.

Learning whichever way is better than not-at-all.

Default Very unkind we need to register to read

Some foruns are doing this way to force us to register... a pity that, i do the opposite, no way to accept that demand....that forum does not make a friendly presentation to our communitty.

I know that you are not the forum owner hermano, but these guys should understand that they may be loosing members this way.. something goes covering text...very annoying, very rude.

Good are foruns where we do not feel the management presence, not to feel alike a fish inside a glass pot, beeing observed, controled (moderated)... alike a prisoner watched by cameras.

Saludos brasilênos hermano Sudamericano.

Carlos
