OH great DIYers and engineers. Lookin for amp kit.
 
I am looking for an entry level SS amp design I currently have a nice SET setup and a HT setup using a denon 3805. I would like to try my hand at building an amp but I would like a kit so I don't have to sourse out parts and I don't have to build a chassie. If I had the skill I would be looking at the Pass or leach amps but I think that may be a bit much. The only thing I am looking for is an amp that will be a large step up from the 3805s internal amp. I have relativly effecient speakers so I don't need huge power. Just good sound.

Many of the amps dicussed here will easily surpass the sound of the Denon 3805 and by quite a margin too.

Take a look at these:

http://www.sound.westhost.com/project101.htm
http://www.sound.westhost.com/project3a.htm

Both are fairly simple to make, with the first timer in mind and yet they sound superb, not the last word in amps but certainly considered as high-end. You can buy the boards from Rod (the guy who runs the site) for next to nothing. Have a word with him via email if your interested. Very helpful chap and will answer any questions you may have, he'll even help, via email, you whilst your building it.

Or you could simply order a completed amp from places like BMM Electronics, Profusion UK etc.

These are great amps. You will have to make or buy you own chassis but that's part of the hobby.

Could you guys tell me how much on avg. it costs to build these amps?

sam9 20th March 2005 03:54 AM

For kits as opossed to just a PCB and instructions, I think your best (maybe only) bets are

www.ampslab.com

and

www.printedelectronics.com

Kits with all the parts are not too common these days. Heath, Dynaco and Knight dissapeared ages ago,

The cost can vary widely. For the ESP Project 101, the PCB's will set you back about $60 with shipping. Transformer about $50-$60. Matched MOSFETs about $35-$40. Heatsinks $25-$100 depending where you get them. Nice case maybe $40-$100. The rest of the componants maybe $75-$150 depending on where you buy them and what grade you buy.

I think there is a company called ASKA that sells thing pretty complete but I'm not sure. You might use the search engine and find something.

Blessings, Terry

Indeed there is! The AKSA is right here: www.aksaonline.com

Cheers,

That can't be true !
ASKA is not AKSA, is it ? :clown:
I am going to verify with DestroyerX !

Tell Mr Dean to hand over the Glass Harmony, DJNUBZ.
Whatever you do, do not buy the Crescendo from him.
Or was that DNJUBZ ?

Greg Erskine 20th March 2005 07:40 AM

jacco vermeulen, somehow I don't think the "the Glass Harmony" could be classified as "an entry level SS amp design" under any circumstances. ;)

jacco vermeulen 20th March 2005 08:00 AM

Its not for DJNUBZ, its for ME !:clown:
