Re: DIY Transistor Amp Using NVA Boards

I can bring “The Clone” to your place when you’re free if you want to hear it on your speakers. That sounds like a plan Steve, can we give it a few weeks.. I'd like to get this valve amp finished and, unfortunately, I'm starting a kitchen refurb at Lesleys daughter's next week, I expect that to tak...

Re: DIY Transistor Amp Using NVA Boards

It would be good to hear it Steve, I too have found what I think is a much better amp than the a20, but im sure people will laugh when I say it's built around the tda2030 chip.. I've owned them for a few years, but eventually give them a try a few months ago.. pretty good in my view. I've been tryin...

Re: DIY Transistor Amp Using NVA Boards

I'm sure will soon get the issue sorted Steve You would think relatively simple solid state would be easy after valve amps.. but my first chip amp is going pretty crap... a simple tda 2030, but it just loves to ossilate.. after a month I still can't plug anything into it ! Although it seems ok until...

Re: homeplugs

I'm loathe to open it up again because the last time I did, to install an SSD, I broke the keyboard ribbon contact keeper and she has to use an external keyboard now. There is only 2 inches access when you lift the keyboard off these laptops.....waily waily. That brings back memories of the 90s whe...

Re: SLOB project

Putting two together does nothing but increase that, although the resonant frequency is smoothed, that does not help the low frequency...

Re: SLOB project

Looks a good design to me Ray I would guess they will give good results I would damp the rear / internal panels as in my experience they will sound cleaner, but that's up to you of course. Your Lowthers may work well in them, better than the 10's you are looking at although those 10s look amazingly ...
