NAP-140 Clone Amp Kit on Ebay

Highly suspect source, references to Kenny G and such...

Please Sparkle, inform the Croatian forum link, for us to visit

People told me the forum uses a lot of nice images and good resolution pictures too.

Despite language barriers, schematic can be read around the world, also images can be understood...smilies informs things too.

The good thing about the Naim circuits, in general, is that they use relatively few parts and so are easy to build and get working. At US$50 for two boards and all parts it is at a reasonable price.

Just a couple of things. The design is not the same as a real NAP140 so it won't sound the same. Looking at the photo, the output transistor over-current protection circuit is missing so you'll need to be careful never to accidentally short the speaker outputs or the transistors will be destroyed.
