    They have enclosures and other electronic stuff not restricted to effects pedals, and they will sell you one resistor at a time if you want. It arrives quickly from Louisiana

    I have a question. When I played a couple of CDs the Los Straightjackets (surf rock) and the Ronnie Earl (blues guitar) I was very dissapointed. These are ones I listen to a lot and enjoy but they seemed dingy for lack of a better term. There seemed to be a big difference between them and the other recordings. Do you think it was the room, the recording or what?

    The Szekeres headphone amp would be a great start. Great for anybody who will use a MP3 player in their audio system.

    The basic version only needs a resistor on the lower side (in place of lm317) I prefer the LM317 CCS. The panasonic caps I gave out are perfect for the output cap, 2-3 in parallel. The original amp has 470UF cap (IIRC). I can send some heatsinks,caps and resistors needed to everybody for this amp. I can also send you a really simple regulated supply that will also use the IRF610 mosfet. Just find a 12-15V wall wart rated for about 2-3amps. (old laptops, etc)

    The Bride of Zen would be a great project that everybody could use..... I was looking at etching a PCB this week!

    OK,

    So, let's start with the IRF610/IRF9610 chips we picked up guys. If you are looking for a few very simple projects with them, here are a few:

    A DIY IRF610 Mosfet Class-A Headphone Amplifier Project using a LM317 regulated constant current source (ccs) load.






    All of these have several qualities that will make a first time builder a happy one.

    A) low parts count! Heck, you got the IRFs for free.

    B) medium/low voltage power supplies. Nothing that will kill you.

    C) should be easy to wire since none of the components are tiny

    Personally, I think I'm leaning towards the IRF610/J310 project. Looks fun and very simple. You could even run this on a simple wall wart and add further snubbing and filtering if you choose.

    Yes Bill helping each other is the plan. I really formed this group so we could have a list of people who are qualified to solder your cross over parts.

    just joking.........

    Okay, be good if we helped each other. We could alert each other to sales or buyouts. We could do a group buy if it saves everyone some bucks. I know Bill Brown offered foam insulation he was able to get for free. Hipp you mentioned MDF (I don't like it but it does make a good box). So lets see what we can do to help each other.
