Lightbulb Mad About Sound

Introducing the Mad About Sound website: www.madaboutsound.com.

This new venture is run by myself, based in the UK, and I hope to provide an expanding range of audio components that will be of particular interest to the DIY community.

At present I have various Bell/Daniel power chip amp PCB's/kits in stock:

Click the image to open in full size. LM3886 Dual Mono Kits with Snubberised PSU (designed by CarlosFM)

Click the image to open in full size. LM4780 Dual Mono PCB's

----------------------------------

Mic preamp PCB's have been ordered and I have several kits ready to go as soon as the boards arrive. These will be available for purchase on the website soon.

I am awaiting stock of Peerless XLS subwoofer drivers and will also be offering Jordan fullrange drivers to the UK.

----------------------------------

For worldwide orders please contact me here for shipping costs and information, or alternatively at this email address: sales@madaboutsound.com

Hi Vikash,

I've been doing my research on building a chip amp to replace my now vintage student audio setup. I may well order from you the LM3886 Dual Mono kit in a few days. Nice site BTW.

Cheers

JC (Seabass)

Hi Vikash

Are you planning to sell snubber power supply upgrade kits to retro fit legacy boards?

I don't have any seperate power supply upgrade boards/kits at the moment, but may do in the future. At present only the LM3886 Dual Mono kits come with the snubberised PSU section as standard.

I'm having some custom toroids wound, potted and finished in black which will go nicely with the kits, and also those little green pots that I like.

Cheers for the speedy response. I'll keep my eye open for upgrade kits. I haven't finished my legacy kit yet so the wife wouldn't appreciate me buying another kit already.

Just out of interest, have you rtied the snubberized 3886 kit? How did it compare to your 3875 legacy amps?

Nice site by the way.

I haven't tried the LM3886 with snubberised PSU yet. I've just finished putting together a LM4780 kit (which was done i record time of less than 1 hour to put a whole amp board together!) and will now look for some inspiration of another unique chassis design before building and comparing it to the LM3886.

You'll have an amp for every room in your house if you carry on like this.

I've had some enquiries for chassis materials, particularly the plastics I used in TATCA. I have some acrylic extruded rod pieces (volume control knob) and clear plastic sheets available in various thicknesses. Contact me with your requirements.

Great stuff as always, Vikash. I hope you can keep the site layout as clean and clear as it is now as your product range expands. Any plans for a complete amp kit (including the chassis? - edit: one of your own chassis designs, I mean)

I'm planning on a PCB kit/Pot/Transformer combo, but there's no plan to include a chassis.

Were you referring to a particular chassis?
