Hm..the last one doesn't look some complicated. Is there any alternatives to the transistors, since I got everything except them in my box?

Cheers

Hej Olof,

there are some alternatives (standard small-signal transistors) that could be used:
2N5551 // 2N3904 // 2N5401 // BC337-40 // MPSA06.
I think that this 2N5551 should be a good choice. It works very good on the Baxandall t-stack from A. Collins (Zen UK).
I couldn't measure the circuit until now, but i have the good feeling that they are fine.

Cheers,
I'm gonna finish the amp and psu circuits then I'll see how I do with the eq!

Here is a little sneak peek on amp circuit, my mom had to adjust the toner tranfer paper which messed up the TDA2050, that's why it's a little bit crooked. :P

Otherwise I think it looks OK for a first time etching!

Cheers,
Olof

Olof,
Your Mom even does the ironing on your boards!! :D
Love it.

Hej Olof,

congrats :up: It doesn't look bad! I just remembered that my first diy boards went totally wrong. Don't despair - the next boards are like paintings ;-)

Good stuff, way to get mom involved. DIY Audio is for everyone! ;)

Yep, don't forget you will need to attach the chip to a heat sink. So if you can get the chip near the edge of the PCB it will be easier to mount.
Cheers

Just an other way to mount coolers if you can't mount them close to the ICs. Just use a U-shaped piece of aluminium, large enough to connect it to the IC and the cooler... Don't forget to isolate the chip fom the cooler / alu bar..

Cheers guys,
I made a new one without moms help :P and I'm very pleased with the result!

Alright, she did the ironing, nothing else :blush:

All I need to do is to add C7 then I suppose it's done? or is there any faults?

Hi again,

I just finished building the power supply and it did not explode ;) but the thing is that when I measure between V- and GND my multimeter says 0,00V. But when I measure between V+ and GND I get +26V!

Why is it like this?

Thanks in advance,
Olof

PS! I use 4x4700uF caps. 2 in parallell.
