  1. I have seen 1 or 2 pairs need replacements but i think they are ones that were all early production
  2. keep in mind the thermal transfer for this package is not great, with a good insulator the IC will be 3C/W hotter than the heatsink. so you do need to keep the heatsink cool. temperature in this case with the RAAL is dependent on music and how loud you're listening. My guess is in most uses the heatsink will not exceed 40C. with no audio it will be room temp. so if the heatsink reaches 40C w/ an average of 15W per IC then the IC temp will be around 85C There is also the TO-3 package @ $150 ea. and Apex has parts of a similar price
  3. I received a suggestion that the grounds for the L/R output, which in this case is the 4-pin XLR but would also be the negative posts on the speaker terminals, be wired back to each L/R channel board rather to the star ground at the switching PSUs open for debate on that
  4. can try but it will be limited by voltage swing. 25W/8-ohm and 50W/4-ohm as of right now here is where the difficult work actually starts, and the time consuming work. I'd be interested if anyone wanted to finish it up before putting in the $$/cost on their own unit. for future board revisions: - make the jumper over the bass boost 3x 0.1" pins so a push-on jumper can be used + have a place to store it and/or add small signal DPDT 24v relay to switch it (add a 2nd value with moar boost?) - don't block the heatsinked part mounting screws with the electrolytic caps - ho
  5. RAALstar v0.1 with one of Ray's old test discs raalstar.mov
  6. mine are complete at allpcb using those files. shipping on hold to combine w/ a different order
  7. nope, i ordered 2oz for a prototype
  8. oops..one mistake. the tantalum caps (10uf) should probably be ceramic such as RCER71H106MWK1H03B or use the tantalum ones and bypass with a .1uf c0g under the board such as RDE5C1H104J2K1H03B
  9. Mouser #: 595-OPA541AP Mfr. #: OPA541AP Desc.: Operational Amplifiers - Op Amps Operational Amplifiers - Op Amps Hi-Power Monolithic Op Amp 4 $21.40 $85.60 4 Shipped 06-Aug-20 57782631 Mouser #:
  10. i have 5 on the way, but i don't know how many i'll blow up yet. you should use allpcb though, it's like $1.99 for new customers to order these
  11. I like how a heatsinked 3U chassis is now the modest build answer
