After my (mostly) successful experiment with the CMoy, I am ready (hopefully) to move onto my next amp. I was considering a more expensive/complicated amp like an M^3 or PPA but I think I'd like to keep it simple and make some version of a CMoy or an Apheared 47.
I've been reading and searching, and unfortunately I don't understand a lot of what I'm reading. From what I understand the A47 is similar to a CMoy, but it incorporates a buffer. That's good because if I rebuilt my CMoy I would have had to figure out how to put the buffered ground onto the rest of the amp. From what I understand, a buffer regulates the power between the amp and the powersupply. I could be wrong though...
So I believe to make it sound better I would also build a power supply that would accept the DC from the wallwart. So I was thinking it would go something like this:
Wallwart AC->DC---->Power supply (like a http://tangentsoft.net/elec/tread/)---------->A47 or CMoy
Does this make any sense? From my reading I've seen that most of the higher end amps like the M^3 require a power supply, and the quality of it matters. Would a DC to DC power supply make any sense in an amp like this? Does the buffer that is in the Cmoy or A47 include the powersupply?
How should I procede?
Sorry for all the questions, it is difficult to research when I'm not sure what questions to ask. I can build things reasonably well when I have instructions to follow, and it certainly makes more sense in my head :P
