Aerosmith - Done with mirrors.

Mid 80's comeback with Joe Perry back in the band. Only song I liked was "my fist your face". Rest is garbage.

Re: Building a DIY amp with NVA amplifier boards

Go figure. I would expect that. I assume the driver is not taking a huge amount of current, so the ripple on the driver rails will be reduced if its only powering the LTP and VAS. Only thing that would worry me a little is the sequencing. If they are all from the same supply, they will all either h...

Re: Building a DIY amp with NVA amplifier boards

Up until now I have been powering the LTP and VAS sections from one transformer and the driver and output transistors from another (that is how Avondale split the power rail). Today I have decided to include the drivers on the LTP and VAS psu. So the output transistors have the big transformer all t...

Re: Douglas Self

Noted, thanks. All I want to do is to gain a better understanding of how electronics work. Maybe I should approach it from a general perspective and not from an audio one. Then I wont get polluted by the opinion of the arses. It would be nice to play around designing and building my own amplifier ci...

Re: Douglas Self

Hi Dave. Yes I agree. I am having to sift through the book and take some of it with a pinch of salt. The art is knowing which bits to ignore. Some is over my head but I find that as my learning develops I understand more and more of it with each read. It is good at explaining the different architect...
