I want to build some of these class A amps such as the alpha3 and a40, but I am lacking in the knowlege of amplifier electronics....unfortunately (and fortuneately at times), my skills are in woodworking and don't really help here. I am pretty good at soldering, and can put things together with a schematic, but I have a hard time understanding electonic schematics and jargen to know what parts to by (asside from simple things like resistors and caps).

back to the topic. Asside from the chassis, does anyone here have any inclination on putting together parts kits for these amp designs? I am not talking about selling them for a profit, since that would be a copy right violation, but rather payment for the cost of the parts, shipping, and a fee for your troubles.

Default 20 Watt Class A Audio Amplifier

Hi,

By clicking on the following link, you will be able to purchase a printed circuit board in order to build a 20W Class A amplifier, then just go to a local electronic store and buy the pieces. Solder the whole thing together, make a power supply and enjoy the music.

Good luck !

Lightbulb Check here for Pass Labs a40 parts list

Hi Gomer: Check the following page on my web site for a <a href="http://www.facstaff.bucknell.edu/esantane/movies/a40.html">parts list</a> for the Pass Labs a40 amp. I'm currently gathering parts but probably won't begin assembly for another few months (other projects to finish!).

By the way, nice recipe for the Cat5 speakers cables on your web site! Thanks! I recently had to change the configuration of my home theater setup to put the equipment in a closet (away from new crawling son). I was using a set of 8ft Tara Phase IIs for my speakers, which sounded very nice, but they were too short to reach the speakers from the closet. I had to replace them with generic 12ga wire - YUK! All of the treble and soundstaging disappeared! Quick - gotta fix this! I got some Belden Plenum Cat5 and twisted up a set of your Gomer Wires! Ahhh! Treble and soundstage restored! At least the equal of the Tara's, if not better!
