Default Geoff's JLH PCBs

I've just finished a prototype of a JLH using Geoff's PCB layouts (thanks, Geoff!). This is a temporary setup while I decide on final packaging.
Here's a populated board. Notice it's single-sided, and only one wire link is needed. This is an easy board to stuff, I'd recommend this project to beginners except for the heatsinking and power supply requirements make it a fairly involved project.

Here's my test arrangement. There are 8 output transistors spread over 5 heatsinks, and it's still not enough without some fan cooling. I'm running just under 2 amps bias current at +/- 18.5VDC.

The power supply is almost 100% recycled parts. The transformers came from a pair of Advent Powered Loudspeakers (that are currently UnPowered); To get the proper voltage, I wired their primaries in series and their secondaries in parallel via the 10W current sharing resistors. I was originally going to add a capacitance multiplier but with the big capacitors I have Geoff suggested it was good enough without. Also, I didn't want to suffer the voltage drop and lower the rail voltages any further.
If I use this for the final arrangement, and it goes somewhere other than my lab, I'll have to hide it away (I've been told).
I think I might just keep it in the lab, though...

Hi Paulb,
Are you sure you didn't pull this out from the UFO that landed in your garden ( or the sidewalk)?

Anyway I like it !
I'd be shot if I tried to keep a thing like this in the living room .
And I don't have a lab for myself

Hi Chris, thanks. I haven't listened to it enough yet, but I like the sound. Even if I didn't, I'd convince myself that I did after how long it has taken. Still have to package it up somehow.
Are you still using yours? I remember, the one on the casters, right?

I am still using mines everyday!

See picture for the right channel alone.

1 JLH for the Jx150
1 JLH for the Jx53 plus ribbon tweeter
2 Snubber High cap GC, one each for the 2x 12 inches OB H frame subwoofers.

Default J-amp 2003..

My 2 J-amp-2003's are still in use on a daily basis.

I've not even measured the actual DC-offset for the last year.
Probably a check might be nice.

They still have an audible ''thumb'' at power on. but i don't care.

Soundwise I'm still impressed with the fine combination of the J-amp 2003 and my JMLab Symbol II's.
