Thanks, everyone for contributing. I agree with some and disagree with others.

I don't have any more to add or contribute, hence I declare this thread closed.

Default New Image

The unit I bought. See the hardwired LM1875, the image below.

I thought I will give you guys the update of the Hardwired LM1875 module I bought for 2 channels.

It arrived many weeks ago now I manage to put it together in a testbed. See the image below, it's for testing purposes only. If it sounds good I will put it in a proper case.

Comments:

1. Powered up with about 17Vac--0--17Vac. First up no problem and I can hear music.

2. Sound seems ok, so far no distortions for the time being no critical listening as yet, I bought to replace my Tube EL84 which generates about roughly the same power, 12-15Watts per channel.

3. I am using this amp to drive a tweeter or a low-powered full ranger in an active DSP x-over configuration.

4. Note that the coupling capacitor is a large red cap., and also the bypass cap both can be bypassed in another LM3886 chip amp. Because of the input Offset voltage, I will get an output offset whether it is acceptable I yet to find out.

5. After testing and listening I will come back to advise you whether it is worth buying. I won't give you a blow by blow updates.

Thanks for reading.

It is worth buying just as a piece of electronic art.
Just appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into making something like this.

Just completed my hardwired amp. just a little slack lately. Haven't evaluated the module for sound quality yet.
I thought you may like to see a few images, the power transformer is mounted in a separate box. The size of amp module in wooden box is about (W*H*D) is 16*7*13.5 in cm. Looks cute.

Hi,

I won't write a long report cos I think no one would want to read it. If interested write to my private message box or here, preferably the former.

I had evaluated it for more than a month, I would wholehearted recommend it.

Cheers have a good day.

Here's some of mine. Of course it sings. For the moment I won't share pics of the completed amplifier though.

Local decoupling capacitors closest to the pins are no exception as well. I put 100nF foils, and the electrolytics are two fingerbreadths away.

Curious that..
IMO THE main attraction of that Amp is it's striking visuals.

Burying it in a wooden box.. IMO, defeats any reason for owning it.
