    Just put better electrolytics in. The gold ones are "FG" series and the blue one is...heck...whatever it says... "KA"? Both at the top of the Nichicon line.

    I passed (no pun intended) on the first three runs of this project. On the waiting list now. Don't have a use for it, but I'll find one. Or Aaron can sell me his when his next project comes along :D

    Amp Camp Amp - sponsored by Nelson Pass

    The Amp Camp Amp was created by Nelson Pass for a special event called "Amp Camp" in which 20 people built their very first amplifier from start to finish in one afternoon. The event was held outdoors on a lovely sunny day in California and all attendees walked away with a fully functioning amplifier and a smile on their dials.

    Naturally, other people wanted share that same amazing experience of successfully building their first amplifier so diyAudio has created the three essential ingredients you need for that same journey - the parts, the instructions, and the community.
