First little about me.

Now i am planing to building an Audio Amplifier. I make search on net i found this.

What u say about it??? I need ur suggestions and guidence..
If some one have better design then plz share.
Want to make a high quality and high power amplifier(300~500Watt)

I want to attach the amplifier with My PC(Sound Card). And with MIC.
Is there any need of PreAmplifier between PC and PowerAmplifier??
And If someone have a good Mic pre amp design plz share.

Thanks.

Hi,

i am not sure if you have read the whole page, there are 2 statements that this might not be the right amp for you:
- "DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS AMPLIFIER AS YOUR FIRST PROJECT"
- "Because this amp operates in "pure" Class-B, the high frequency distortion will be relatively high, and is probably unsuited to high power hi-fi."

Maybe you start with something smaller/easier as first project?

Mike

Hi,
this amp will work, but it has a fixed voltage across the output stage. One cannot alter the bias to optimise the output distortion.

The ESP site has other amplifiers, that are conventional ClassAB designs, with the result they are more suitable for normal music reproduction.

First statement for those who never built any electronics project before.

That's my baby, builders are very pleased with its sound, but it's "only" moderate power.

Oh. I read previous pages on this web i found that u(MikeB) made symasym5..

I think i should go with symasym5.. What u say MikeB.. Are u satisfied with ur symasym5???

Is there any need of PreAmplifier b/w PC sound card and symasym5????

I also want to attach a mic with Selector Switch. Needed MIC pre Amplifier.. Plz Help.

Thanks MikeB.

Yes, i am satisfied with symasym, but i am biased...
You can drive symasym without preamp from soundcard or CD-Player.
For the mic you will definitely need a preamp, but i have no experience with that.

If this is your first amplifier, I would recommend going with some chip amplifier. A power amp is as much about PCB design and layout as it is about parts... and mistakes can be extremely costly.

On the other hand, the symasym is well proven, and there is a PCB layout already made and available.. as long as you make the PCB well enough you should have few issues. Just be aware that working with power amps is a lot more tricky than working with a microcontroller.

If this is your first *discrete* amplifier, I'd suggest building something very low power, purely as a learning exercise. Find a similar design in the 10-30 watt region and build that. You'll learn many things that will help you with the bigger one. You don't want to waste your money, and starting with a very high power amplifier is sure to do that- parts will turn into smoke, poor ground return design will give you high distortion, and after the chassis work is done, you'll see how you could have done it better. Even if you give the small amplifier away, it will have served its purpose and allowed you to build a much better big amplifier. I'd also suggest getting Doug Self's audio power amplifier design book, and others that have been mentioned in various threads here.

Dear Sirs!
I want to create an amplifier per cent of this is complete!
So please, if someone is able to work that details the description of this amplifier?!
Otherwise, attached below is given PCB for this amplifier!
