Any suggestions on a DIY amp to put together.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

I have a couple of 32-0-32 volts @ 4 Amp trafos lying around at home.

 

So I thought of building an amp which can use them. Any schematics for something like this? I haven't searched on the net, maybe there are some amps out there. In terms of audio quality, the most important thing is CLEAN and BALANCED sound. We need to hear the little things!

 

was thinking to build a set of mono block amplifiers, not too fancy but nice enough for my Dynaudio Audience 42W speakers. Can someone help me point out some amplifier designs? Think I can handle a build completely from scratch.

 

Regarding the power supply, with a rectifier and a 4* 10000MFD capacitor bank I get +/- 45VDC. So what is a wise decision? I estimate, with this supply you should get around 150 watts.

 

Thanks In Advance

Google "gainclone" 

Should provide you with plenty of information.  

 

In case you don't find it in your searches - more power is not necessarily better, especially since you have (wisely) emphasized clean and detailed sound. 

Just because you can build a 150w amp does not mean it is better than a ~40w amp.
