Completely new to building amplifiers
 
Hello,
I have been an audiophile for some time now, having owned Krell and Audio Research products and enjoying them. But one thing has been nagging me: I like the satisfaction of creating things with my own hands.

In other words, I want to CREATE (for my own use initially) tube and or solid/state amplifiers. Thus, I am seeking help: things such as where to find designs, or kits; what tools to have handy (I already own a multimeter, although I am not sure if its up to the task), things to look out for, supplies and parts to use, etc.

I wanted to start with something, say 30-50W. Is that realistic? If not, what is?

I have looked but there seems to be a lack of information with regard to the subject.

I am fairly intelligent, good with my hands, and motivated. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank you in advance,
Tony

Brand,efficiency and such.

Things you have and want to integrate with your new Diy creations and such.

Cheers,;)

Tube Amps
 
Hello,

My loudspeakers are 2-way Wharfedales, 6 Ohm, and kevlar driver and ferro-cooled tweeter. My Preamp is highline Harman-Kardon (I am looking to trade). My Interconnects are all Cardas. My speaker cables are AudioQuest.

Regards,
Tony

What do you know about basic electronics?
Send me an email and I will send you some online resources.

Hi Halojoy,

Funny how you managed to misspell that.;)

It should say "capice?".

All things considered,you did come out of your bed again,didn't you?
Never read you a bedtime story again.:(

Seems to me you're the only "capricious" one around....;)

Altra volta,buona notte signore Groman.
