I really needed a quick amplifier to power a few book shelf speakers. Looking around my ic bin, I found a few lm386s.
Next I pulled the rest of the parts (1x perf board, 2x ic sockets, 2x 100uf caps, 2x 5k pots, some wires, and a few odds and ends)
Put all this in a blender, bake for few hours and this is what you get.
The results are, its not a bad sound. some noticeable distortion at higher levels. More improvements can be made, like changing the output caps to bigger ones, adding a gain selector….etc.
But what I have now works. Next a class A amp and other projects.
