Default Honey Badger and Doug Self Preamp

These past 3 months have been a blast! I have had a lot of fun building Honey Badger and Doug Self Preamp. I have learned a lot and keep learning. Working on this project has also been a way for me to re-live my school years. The last picture is of the 4 Watt stereo amplifier I built in my 11th grade.

Thank you everyone who have been answering my (sometime stupid) questions. I couldn't have done it without you! Thank you to DiyAudio staff and moderators for maintaining the forums and the store.

I hope to be able to start contributing back some day, maybe when I am done with all of the 1192 pages of The Art of Electronics by Horowitz Hill? :-)

Hello all,
I know it's not easy to say, but if you have to specify a value for the THD of the Honey Badger at 8 ohm, how much it would be ? Just to have an idea...
Thank you

Hi reedcat,
Nice build. Not only that, but what you have probably outperforms 95% of the commercial equipment out there.

Hi Joanito,
As low as you can reasonably get, and as long as it sounds good. It is possible to make something with very low THD that doesn't sound good. The reverse is also true, you just think it sounds good, but after some time listening the truth comes out.

For solid state, probably 0.05% might be reasonable.

Hi anatech,

The Honey Badger is, not only, but also, build under the technics of Bob Cordell , right ?... so i expected something like thd < 0.001 . I sayed "I know it's not easy to say" in previous post because per example: mesure in LTSpice is one thing, mesure in real life is another, etc , it's hard to say an exact value...

The value of distortion of the Honey Badger is very very low, isn't it ? Around 0.001% perhaps...

Thanks guys

Hi Joanito,
The Honey Badger was designed by another member we have here, not Bob Cordell. Very low distortion is the hallmark of this member, and he has designed a few very good designs.
