Hello!

Now my amplifier is 100% complete. It sounds really good :) but unfortunately is uglier than poop and the volume control looks like small kids erect penis :(

Heres some pics:

These toroidial transformers doesent give off mutch noise, tho i could take a piece of plastic coated steel and put between the tx and input cables/pot but i doubt that will make a diff. I ut the pot there because the hole in the front was already drilled there. This chassis contained a mono amplifier from the magazine elektor when i got it, it was crappily made with almost every solder joint off board was cold solders and the main ps caps was only mounted loosely with some steel wire so i scrapped it.

This forum is all about learning:) If your amp sounds good to you, it is good! Just take the advice's, from your fellow DIY'ers and be happy:cool: Dont be put off! I have to admit though, that your frasing isn't the norm on this forum;)
All the best

BTW, almost forgot, what is your amp?? LM38XX or something?
