Alright, time for Giveaway #2! This prize rocks. :up: It is two mono kits of the MyRefC LM3886 chipamp kits that Uriah and Peter recently put together (a very large effort - thanks guys) as part of a groupbuy. The chipamp design is by Mauro Penasa and it is well regarded (see the schematic at the bottom of post). Also included in the giveaway are two 160VA (120V primary, dual 24V secondaries) transformers that will work well with the amplifier modules and allow you to build two mono-block amplifiers if you like. To finish off the kit, you will need to supply your own hookups and bits (RCA, Speakers, IEC, power switch, wire, ...) as well as a suitable heatsink and chassis (or two).

I recently have build a 160Liter Bass reflex Subwoofer with the Mivoc AWX 184. In three months when I move to my new house I will build the corner horn 18. I am looking for a good but inexpensive tube amplifier at the moment, so I decided to give this a shot. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the finished projects, but you can see it at:

This is a MIDI controller that I created for a friend of mine, using a homespun arduino on a protoboard, and several 4051N multiplexers.

It performed well in the lab, but ended up being a bit wonky when under heavy use. I believe the problem is that I used super cheapo pots and they just don't have the tolerance that the project needs. I thought I could get away with using cheaper pots as I wasn't running any audio through them, but it just didn't work out right.

The platform is solid though, and the buttons work perfectly. There's not a whole lot to the Arduino code, and I would be happy to share it with anyone that asks. It was a great proof-of-concept, and I plan on building another controller in a proper case with less pots, more buttons, and maybe even a couple sliders.

There are lots more pics in my Flickr album.

Hi,

Hope the pics are there ;)

This is an amp I have built recently using the Philips TDA8920BTH. Even though it sounds very good I'd really like to try this Gain clone, it is actually very different than most GC I have seen.

Here is my recent S5 electronics K-12G, I'm just getting into this hobby.
I don't yet have the enclosure built, but here is a top & bottom view.

A shot of some of my CMoy headphone amps. These were how I started down the DIY route. Quickly tired of the regular Altoids tins and tried several variations of the theme. Also built a Millett Hybrid in a really sweet cigar box before advancing to chip amps and now full fledged tube amps.

Love DIYin'!
Cheers, Greg

I modded my Korg EX800 (the tabletop version of the poly800) with the MoogSlayer Filter and FM800 mods. I also added a top mounted noise control.

The difference in sound and flexibility of this synth is amazing. I'm very happy with the overall build. I used high quality pots and resistors from pedalparts.com - my next project is to mod my casio VL-Tone and to apply some crazy warranty voiding bends to a cheap Berhinger Reverb Pedal that I got for free.

I have some neat project pictures I can post, and I think I will start with my 50EH5 / 25EH5 tube amplifier, now that I have some very nice pictures of it. I have to say, this was one of my most successful projects so far.

I plan on making a pair of efficient speakers for it at some point, but for now I am going to attempt a custom wind of a toroid core that I pulled from a blown car amplifier, hope fully the core is big enough to get 25V-0-25V, less if I run DC filaments at 300mA 50V.
