amp upgrade and small fault - drift with ambient temp.
I have a couple of 8 year old pioneer car amps which I use for a fully active system.
they are bipolar output class AB (high biased, class A to around 10W), not bad sounding overall.
I want to do upgrades to make them much nicer, and one has a small problem. the problem is gain changing with ambient temp. by about 0.2dB/degreesC. this screws up my imaging depending on the weather.
the op-amps are NJM2068S. I was looking at either NE5532 or OPA2227/8 and making little boards to suit (the NJM are a 9-pin SIP). any recommendations?
also, I will be by-passing all the built-in eq controls.
is it worthwhile to replace the output transistors, they are 2SC5101 driven by 2SC3421 in the +ve, and 2SA1909 driven by 2SA1358 in the -ve side.
Where in melbourne (australia) can I get blackgate caps? (for the power supply and signal)
any suggestions will be appreciated
