Thanks!  There were some stumbles along the way but I had a blast making it.

Finished the amp today. New switches and wiring, and added the power supply. This is my desk unit.

Team ϟϟ ! Got to give them tubesters a worthy retaliation!

 

Over 300 parts, 14W power consumption, bandwidth well in megahertz range so some limiting input filter must be used to tame the beast.

 

Sound? Sublime!

Gotta give it up for that build.

SERIOUS !

Thanks, man! Here's some scarce info on the project - http://sjostromaudio.com/pages/index.php/hifi-projects/129-qrv08-headphone-amp

 

I've heard that the BOM can be put together for about 250$ on your side of the pond. For me... more like 400$. Still it's very cheap for that kind of an amp.

 

Oh, and then there's the soldering...

and then there's soldering.... you say.

 

I have meat hook hands.  I was lucky to get 20 odd 0804 components working.

My secret is that I never solder sober.

single malt?

Wine. Easier to control. Whiskey needs attention and there's none to spare when I'm soldering.

 

We need a topic for choosing the right wine that goes well with the fumes.

Oh my god, this is beautiful. Just plain gorgeous. I hope it gets a nice enclosure to live in!

 

I've been bogged down with other projects that I'm working on (particularly a high end electronic-cig driver board with micro controller controlled VV/VI/VW settings and other such fanciness.

 

I checked out the page you linked for the qrv-08 and I think I'm in love. I was in the beginning stages of designing a high-end discrete SS amp, but looking at this, I think I might give it a go first for education's sake.

 

Any info, full sized schematics, even better, board layouts would be hugely appreciated, since every image on the site that you linked seems to only be available in low res (I couldn't download the pdf files)

 

Props to you mate, that thing is such a beast, I love it!

 

Team SS FTW! (not sure how I feel about the ϟϟ symbol though, its a little too nazi-ey for my liking :p)

 

Apologies for my typing, I have a pinched nerve in my arm thats really not helping my dexterity at the moment (and also making soldering a total beotch :()

 

peace,

chris

Ha, I'm just pulling everyone's leg with the sieg runes! You should see the faces of some neo-commie guys I've trolled with pictures of old Russian rubles with swastikas printed on them. Both of these are harmless symbols - sieg means "victory" and the swastika has plenty of good associated with it. A real shame that some idiots decided to take them for themselves, but oh well...

 

Regarding full size schematics and other info - I'm bound by a contract to not reveal them. You can figure out the topology by looking at the small schematic, really. If you can't then the big one won't do you much good. The bom is pretty straightforward as well - I'm sure you could populate the board for 250$ or less.

 

Tha amp itself is basically two modified diamond buffers stuck together. Due to low psrr it needs extremely clean juice therefore quad shuntregged PSU's are a must. 2/3 of the board are taken up by the PSU's. The real ising on the cake is the current feedback loop - not many audio amplifiers use this.

 

In any case - I like the sound very much, even more than my Dynalo. Also it;s like 4x smaller than my Dynalo. Now to get a nice box for it. I might actually omit the volume pot because I'm looking to get a Violectric V800 that has digital volume control.

 

Thanks for writing, Chris! Hope you get your arm situation sorted out!

 

Cheers!

Rudolfs

Amen! I've always loved the look of exotic woods paired up with electronics. Seems stylish and elegant. And woodwork and electronics are two things I'm not afraid to dive into (not so literally! lol).

 

While metal and wood combinations are sexy, the wood amps really get me!

My wife likes to Bake, I like to build CIEMs, and I think Speaker Cabinets will be something I want to get into as well.

 

 

 

 

 

Some CIEMs

 

 

 

 

 

 

My soldering tip....   really for me the secret is the "Tip."  Keep it very very clean and it helps make soldering much easier.  Radio Shack sells a tip cleaner ($10).
