LM4780 Olympic Edition Amplifier Kit [LM4780TDA] - $99.00 : hifidiy.net
I know that the tube is a china junk and was wondering what to replace it with. Also does anyone know what powers it? It seems to have +-18v and +-25v in.
Nice purchase! Slightly hesitant on buying the whole amp until i've heard some real user feedback.
As a proud owner what is the score on this interesting amp?
Worth the money?
I'm planning to use it on a home made line array - so wanted the clarity that Gainclones give.
Any comments welcome.
I have this kit, I threw away the crapptacular china tube and replaced it with an electro harmonix cryo treated russian tube, DAY and NIGHT I tell you! I also replaced several cheap components with my choice of caps, transistor and resistors. I have zero hum maxed out. I can put my ear on the driver and it is dead silent. I used mundorf supreme eutectic solder for the entire board. I have a 10 inch aluminum radiator on the LM4780 chip and it still runs hot! I recommend active cooling.
