For the enclosure, Mark has used a heavy cast aluminum cooking pan and a massive wooden cutting board. The amplifier is based around the LM3875 chip (power opamp) and uses point-to-point wiring. The amplifier follows the "rigid and compact" approach of the 47 Laboratory Gaincard amplifier. A rigid enclosure is used to reduce resonance and vibration while a short signal path, feedback loop and minimal parts (compact) are used to preserve information. The schematic of the three resistor amplifier is shown below.
Keep cooking Mark, as I look forward to more of your projects. See the project page for full details of Mark's Synergy - LM3875 Gainclone Chip Amplifier Project.
