Class D Amp Build

at 7:37 am. Filed under Electronic Hacks


There was a thread over at DIY Audio that got Toon Beerten thinking about putting together a new amp.  I have heard about all these strange amp classes but I haven’t been following them for many years. This Class D amp is actually a class T amp but because of some trademark issues it is branded as a class D.

“I considered to construct the AMP6 kit from 41Hz Audio because of all the raving reviews. I went however with the 2*100 watt @ 4ohm TK2050 Class-D Audio Amplifier Board from Sure Electronics after reading this thread on the DIY Audio forum. The board is pre built (no need for soldering) and retails for a meagre 27€ (45US$). This is actually a class T amplifier, but that’s just a trademark of Tripath – the chip producer – for this class d amp.”
