I'm sorry I thought he wrote that manual.
As I said I'll OCR it when I get all the pictures (or if Kim wants to mail me them).

Default Millennium XP 13,6mB pdf for download

Download the Millennium XP DC amplifier from shared Google docs pdf file:

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7UK...V1k/edit?pli=1

My friends behind the scene should be happy now

Kim

Hi Kim, I did the OCR on the above pdf (which also reduced size to 4MB without worsening the quality), and I'm mailing it to you. You can then upload with google docs.
This should make the friends with no name even happier

Nicest regard,

Hereīs some pictures of the LC Audio Patriot NFB amp. Every two years i take the lid off and remove dust with compressed air and a vacum cleaner.
I donīt think it that suitable for low impedances as the output relies on four pairs of output devices (appearantly each cannel are two amps in bridge mode). The other output devices are set tio kick in in case of demand for an extra current pulse.

I think this Dynamic Precision A 1 amp is more apt to drive low impedances. It has 16 bipolar output transistor per channel and is capable of output 60 Ampere (120 Ampere peak) . Better in the bass department but I prefer the Patriot for the treble. But the A1 is not a no-feedback amp. It uses local feedback and an error correction along with some patented stuff.

Slightly OT. These two amps have some features in common, they are fast; slew rate for the AI is more than 250 V/us and think the Patriot doubles this. The A 1 has an input filter though and for one period of time there was a problem with the Patriot picking up some HF signal and one channel muted because of the protection curcuit, but this is now a solved issue.

Both amps are DC-coupled but only the Patriot has a DC servo. The A 1 has another form of protection.

The A 1 is a low distortion amp the figures are in a way "impressive" but the Patriot amp can be set in eighter single ended or symmetric operational mode, this effects the distribution of second and third etc distortion. According to the constructor Lars Clausen the one or another mode suits different types of music, I donīt care though.

In summery: these amps have different approaches and each has its strenghts. Usually people uses the same kind of amps when bi- or tri-amping but I donīt think this is mandatory. I even drive my subwoofers left and right channel with different amps an the result is amazing!

It looks like a fantastic amplifier... the Dynamic Precision A 1. I think this amp must have been developed later than the XP. I lost contact with LC's work after the millennium.
May I have your opinion with the sonic sound of this amp against the low-power XP or even the mk.3.1?

Secondly I have oploaded the 1995 Danish layout for "The End mk.3.1". The link for the mk.3.1 version at my site above.

Finally the question:

I asked the owner of L.C.Audio whether he would consider to produce the PCB and component kit for the 3.1 and the Millennium once again. The owner said that the minimum order for him was 100 pcs. of the PCB either for the 3.1 or the Millennium.

I have a responce gmail which is: kim.jul.hansen2012@gmail.com
Is there DIY people from outside Europe with interest that you once again could have the opportunity to buy a "The End mk. 3.1" or Millennium kit?

Amplifier kit will consist only of PCB's, components and assembly instructions. Cabinet choice is on your own.

LCAudio can order 100 PCB's and components for either 3.1 or XP as minimum.....

There is now a need to make comments and wishes.

Is there interest? .... if any use. kim.jul.hansen2012@gmail.com
with your name and address.

I am perhaps too late out because the number of DIY electronic girls and boys has plummeted during the last two decades.
