I recently ordered one of these modules after being very impressed with the sound of an earlier version of this module I borrowed from Col. It’s an amp module using the Tripath TA3020 IC, which can do up to 110W at 8Ω, with max. 0.1% THD, though I’m more interested in the 50W per channel it can do with just 0.02% THD.
This one has been on the back burner for a while as Iv’e assembled it a few times and then discovered ground loops. Now all cured 😉 (click-pic)
Recently, I have been busy working on a new minirig PA which was going to be called v7 and was almost compleated as a 3 way active. Now Iv’e decided to skip v7 altogether and move straight to V8.
Minirig V8 will be a 4 way active. Over the Australia Day weekend I finished retro-fitting this pair of 4 way mono crossovers which will be at the heart of the system. (click pic)
I got one of these kits from Col for the Elliot Sound Products Project88 preamp and soldered it up.. a relatively easy build after the ALIEN DAC.
Definately has a bit of the DIY kit feel about the unit, but, it sounds great.
Iv’e bagged up, a few Rod Elliot ESP Kits for sale. Not making massive bux out of them, just I use so much of Rod’s projects in my own DIY thought it would be good to try and make them a bit more accessible for other folks. First one is a P88b preamp, second one is a P05b power supply. They are now up for grabs so email me for more details. col. (click pic)
Iv’e stuck this up on diyaudio.com
Based on Minirig projects we will soon be offering some ESP kits and modules.
