a simple amplifier to build?
I have very little experience and I would like to build a power amp to use with my preamp. I don't need tons of watt, but enough to get "live sound" without distortion from my speaker wich have 96db.
Or AMP6 http://www.41hz.com
I know this answer belongs more to the class D section....but couldn't resist...It is 'live sound' you're after right, well here's an option that won't cost you an arm and a leg...
Re: a simple amplifier to build?
Nelson Pass F1, F2
are amplifiers designed especially for Loudspeakers with a bit higher efficiency.
96dB SPL would be a perfect match.
FirstWatt amps do not have plenty of watt.
But those few watts they have are very high quality = Class A.
This is why Mr. Pass has called this project for First Watt
and the website is www.firstwatt.com
It is a later construction of The Master Pass, only a couple of years since and still under some development.
He has recently given away his F2 schematics
and some people are trying to build copy of these interesting amplifiers.
If you go for this, FirstWatt F1 or F2, you would have good back up from other Nelson Pass builders,
right now working at such amplifier project.
Maybe even from Mister Pass himself ...
He is an amplifier designer/constructor in absolute World Class

A little story from the 6moons review of
the, at the time new, First Watt F2 amplifier by Pass

Regards and laughter from
thank you. Now I'm reading all carefully to understand something
with 96db speakers, then not much power is needed.
You could consider a JLH with near 10W.
Many threads and designs on Hood's amp.
DOZ is pretty simple if you have a big heatsink laying around.
is it possible to modify an exsisting amplifier to sound better?
