Re: Winter Project #1

This is revisiting the power amps (only), but with a few "improvements" e.g. we'll have another go at MOSFET o/p. wow....well ugly(snigger) what ever bias are going to be running the outputs.

Re: Nothing In Particular

My problem, throughout the past few years, has been the turnout. 100 people are in a room and are asked to pick between blue and red as a favourite colour. 34 pick blue, 32 pick red, and 34 stay silent. What's the favourite colour of the group? There's such a large number of people that didn't vote...

Re: pentode screens

Pentode has the advantge of being a Voltage controlled current source, meaning its mu (gain) isn't greatly influenced by the anode Voltage changing. Very similar behaviour to a FET, which we love to use as CSS's. :D What's it for exactly? Audio amp or regulator? audio amp.....I'm simplifying my sv5...

Re: system failure

It's just the tpa/tda3116 chip plus lots of chokes and lots of capacitors.. that's it! anyway there was room in the bin for it. I see there are still some originals available at £18.
