For 40 dollars including shipping and handling you can buy good quality, debugged and guaranteed good boards

however...you want to make a fairly complex design (your first) do you know how expensive just the bare building blocks for a pcb are?

You need quite a few tools to make something like that...drills, acid..bla...bla...bla..

I can understand that you might be strapped for cash....but making the pcb yourself is even more expensive. (could be fun though) :-) And take a risk that you add some errors...meaning you have to do it over....aaargghhhh..

I would just order the boards from that guy...http://www.aussieamplifiers.com/ampkits.htm buy the parts...build it with less frustration...and enjoy listening to music.

Cheers,
Bas

one of the reasons i want to make it my self is for learning reasons. and yes probably you are right about the money, maybe i should try something less powerfull ( like 200W@4ohm ). maybe you could offer me something less powerfull and expencive

Sure can..

How about a gainclone. BrianGT is offering PCB'S for 10US$...

And a kit for around 40-50US$...that puts around 50Watts of ultra musical power :-)

Brian's kit is based on this design by Peter Daniel.. (Both are on this audio forum)

http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/a...audiozone.html

all you'll need is rca plugs, volume control, transformer, binding posts and maybe switching gear....not even if you allready have a preamp that you are happy with.

See the chip amp forum for more info

Brian's group buy
Group order of non-inverted LM3875 pc boards? Anyone interested?

Cheers,
Bas

I bought the PCBs for the amp that is now called AV400. It's good and a worthwhile option if you want a high power amp. I bet Anthony would send them to Lithuania if you wanted.
