Default Recomend me a project

I recently discovered that I had some 48VAC CT transformers in the basement of my house. (I have pile of stuff I have recovered from old telecommunications equipment at work)

I am looking for a solid state design. I have to use the transformers that I found because I am on a budget.

What can you recomend?

Preferably a good sounding class AB design ? I dont know if you guys think that that is a contradiction.

How many VA are those transformers (approximately)?
If you´re on a budget, have a look at Rod Elliots P3A or some LM3886 gainclone.

Sorry I forgot I guess it would be kind of hard to recomend anything without knowing the VA rating.

The transformers are 2x24VAC CT 300VA

You can make either a p3a (, or a gainclone (check the chip amp forum for schematics/etc)

I believe elizard choices are good ones.

IMO, using budget components, the p3 will sound a little better than the gainclone but will end up costings a little more.

If you can increase your budget, I'd recommend an AKSA 55.
