Default Hello everyone!

Hi everyone!

This is my first post here on diyaudio.com. I am located in Vancouver, and have been interested in audio DIY for quite sometime. I have completed several simpler projects. Speaker building, headphone amplifiers, (Not my designs), etc. So I am not completely green. Anyway, I would like to build a stereo amplifier, and noticed that the P3(A?) seems to fit the bill. Ideally, I would like to build using an esiting PCB, and design for this one. Has anyone in around Vancouver built the P3 or any other simpler stereo power amplifiers?

Drop me a PM.

Cheers!

Trevor

You should design your own!!!
Then you can say that YOU made it and no one else.

No seriously, you would get a greater satisfaction if not only the construction is yours but the design also!

Yes, really doing it yourself is real fun...
After having done this, you can sit down and say: I have done this !
But reserve some time, i started a year ago with own designs,
and i am still not finished, it still can get better...

I do not currently have the knowledge to create my own designs. Thus, I'd like to wet my feet with a known design preferably with an existing PCB.

Very true. It can always get better. There in lies the problem. It will never be finished!

I don't think I've finished anything, it's all "work in progress".

Maybe one or two projects are very nearly finished, but I cann't be sure.

One or two have been abandoned; that's the worst thing, to admit defeat.

I'm happy if something works at all, never mind how "high" the "end" is, but sometimes they turn out very good, and I'm very happy.

There's so much excellent stuff on this forum, I am totally amazed by it, and I have only read a small part so far. You will find something here to inspire you.

Yes, that's some kind of annoying... I once just wanted to build my
own amp, but i've still haven't my "perfect" amp. Now my latest
design seems to be the candidate, but i am too curious, i need to
check other topologys. (They might sound even better)

To TrevorNetwork2, i hadn't the knowledge either, learning by doing.
Try to get some "free" spice simulator, for example pspice student version.
It has a 10 transistor limit, but that's enough to learn with simpler
circuits, and the p3a is within this limit.
Or just for sniffing, build the P3A from rod, but please, order the PCB
from him, it's his intellectual property and let him at least earn some bucks.
