Strip Board CMOY Revisited

post #1 of 95
Thread Starter 
I was asked a while ago about making a stripboard CMOY, I was bored and hung over (red wine!!) so decided to remake it again, I hope its some use to anyone getting their feet wet.

here it is



And this is how to make it
first a piece of strip board

Mark where to cut the tracks

Use a pices of wire to transfer the cuts from top of the board to the bottom

Cut the tracks I use a drill bit

Fill her up!!!!




Connect the pot and sockets



Output socket to the board


Pot and input socket to board


BAttery LED & Switch


Run power to the chip


Amazing how something so simple sounds so good


I wish I'd thought of it!!!!!!!

Cheers
FRED

Thanks Fred, this will be very helpful in my attempts to troubleshoot my stillborn cmoy-on-a-stripboard.

Hey Fred, do your amps work best on 1.5 alkaline, or do the 1.2 nimh do just as well?

The amps dont really care where the power comes from as long as there is enough of it
Which amps are you talking about??

Very nice Fred. My connections on the pot seem to be done differently to yours, I'll grab a few pictures when I get a chance. Wish I put some shrink wrap on too. Stuck on a forklift course this week so there's not much I can get done. =/

Mate its not true audiophile without cryo treated shrink wrap and of course you need to choose the colour I'm sure black gives the warmest sound,

The audiophile gods will strike me down for that!!!! but it was worth it

Are you serious does heatshrink really matter ?

If you believe it does, the price of that placebo would likely be the best value upgrade ever!

You're just not open to new ideas :-)
I cryo treated the stripboard (left it in the freezer) and the sound was as good as a B22........honest.......

I've been reading through a bunch of threads trying to figure out this whole amplifier thing and have noticed a bit of sarcasm in one or two of Fred's posts.

(From my very limited experience, heat shrink can be helpful in preventing shorts if you're using a metal case)

Or anywhere bare wires or leads can touch each other.
