well here’s the first draft of the simplest medium powered solid state design i could muster. TL082 can easily be substituted with a TL072 which is probably better anyhow (i just have all these TL082s laying around). the power supply i’m using more like 14-15V. both ICs should easily be able to handle up to 20V and that would allow for louder operation, but i think 15V is safe. all the resistors are 1/8W minus R20 which is 1/4W.
TDA2040 amp prototype…
prototype of a 20-watt TDA2040 based amplifier that i’ve been working on. running a 12-volt power supply and it’s surprisingly loud.
