Title: Video series: design process of a solid state audio power amplifier
Post by: Shonver on January 22, 2020, 12:02:49 PM
The gent who publishes this series, Sandro Herrera, is a professional in the electronics design industry. His experience includes designing operational amplifier integrated circuits. He compares a high performance DIY audio amplifier to a good commercial model and compiles a specification for his own amplifier, SW-VFA-01, the design of which is the topic of the series. He starts by discussing amplifier performance parameters and goes on to describe his simulator setup before moving on to the discussion of the various stages and development.

Although the series is unavoidably technical, I think the average audiophile will recognise a lot of the terminology and may find clues to the veracity of some of the audiophile lore.
