Default Re: The Audiophoolery Thread.

Chris/David, the moment when I switched on the first audio power amplifier I designed/built maaaany moons ago, should've been a 'good distance' away!

My father, was, and he heard it go 'pop'! Miscalculated the bias network vs artistic flair coupled with enthusiasm, turns out the power supply, also designed & made by me, was 'over engineered' and could supply quite a bit of current.

No audiograde parts were harmed in the making of my college project, but I did learn an awful lot, including the doppler effect.
