RR71C331MDN1 Nichicon | Mouser from The Wire amp board are currently out of stock at mouser. Can someone suggest any good replacement which is in stock? Is PLF1C331MDO1 Nichicon | Mouser ok?

For example, I wonder what would happen if you put a different buffer like LT1010 or another pair of LME49990 where the LME49600 is, or if we can simply bypass the LME49600 and listen buffer-less.

The reason would be purity, like "a pure LME49990 circuit", without the subtle differences in electron shifts, circuit type or slew-rate induced distortion etc. the LME49600 theoretically causes hehe :-).

I respect the design as it is, however if the only difference in buffer-less or 4x LME49990 is lower mA output then I would like to try.
If you bypass the buffer it wouldn't be "the Wire" any longer. Take a look here AGDR had an idea about using paralleled lme49990s for a headphone amp.

Point taken and I extend my salaciousness for the link provided.

I finally found solution to DC transient during turning off described by me and @BuildMeSomething at page 45.
It was caused by LED indicating power. Even such small load at only one power rail was causing discharging capacitors asymmetrically and causing DC transient at powering off. After removing that LED transient to not exceed 50mV, down from 1.9V spike before.
Anyway power LED is very handy and now i wonder how to connect it without problems.
A better solution would be connecting second LED balancing load to negative rail or maybe just connecting LED straight to transformer by simple bridge?

Hi Gents,


Boards will be shipping out today for anyone who placed an order over the last few weeks.


Glad to hear you tracked down the source of the transient! I suppose you could always wire the LED across the + and - supplies with a larger resistor to cope with the higher voltage drop. This would at least load the two supplies symmetrically.

I often connect an indicating LED across the +ve to -ve supply rails.

To get a better idea of low voltage, I use a Zener somewhere between half supply voltage and three/quarters of supply voltage.

This turns the LED off fairly quickly if the supply voltage is low for some unknown reason.

Hi Owen.
Will “The Wire” LME49830 Lateral FET Power Amplifier be available again and if so, when?
Will you still sell kit parts at $78 per channel?
