Default Which amp should I build?

I have Marantz SR7400 and Paradigm speakers. The receiver is rated at 105Wx7. I'm very new to the whole DIY on amp but I would like to build something that will give me about 150-200W/channel as I tend to push the receiver too much

Is it possible? If it is, which one should I check out?

Thank you!

Hi Damian

Have a look at www.aussieamplifiers.com

I have quite a few amplifiers to build from 50 watts to 1kw

Regards

Take a look here:

Me and my friend built a few of this with a few minor midifications. The sound is superb. Off the shelf components. Good component tolerance. Presently running them without any protection. Quite rugged design. Even no switch-on thump!
Have fun!

John.

Default What about the Opti-MOS?

If I were in your position, I'd try the Randy Slone Opti-MOS design. Schematic is available on his Website, and his books will give you a lot of background material and full information about the circuit, among other things. I presume you don't mind MOSFETs, considering the other suggestions too are along those lines and at high powers MOSFETs are easier anyway.

I found his books excellent, BTW.
