First Watt Clone - The DIY M2 is a class A amp that follows Nelson Pass's design and tries to clone his work. NP is a big supporter of DIY and released this schematic recently. As I already own 2 M2s, I built this to run my center channel K402 bi-amped. The completed tested and working AMP: I have never built anything like this before and if not for Wdecho, not sure I would have attempted to. With his guidance and help in parts selections and oversight during the build he managed to help me build this from afar without me electrocuting myself. I want to share my experience with you, to encourage you to try and build a SS amp or tubes or line stages whatever. If I can do it, so can you. To start I suggest having a nice soldering iron. I bought a Hakko for this build and have no regrets, part of my success is good clean soldering. Below is what I spent, I spared no expense (but didn't spend a fortune either) and ended up with a nice quiet AMP. Budget: M2 Boards - $28 (2) M2 TF Edcore - $22 FWPS 400 18v TF - $65 Case - $480 Small Parts - $125 Total = $720 Audio Boards http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/group-buys/286699-gb-pass-m2-clone-boards-120mm-ums-spacing-tea-bag.html PS Printed Board http://diyaudiostore.com/collections/printed-circuit-boards/products/universal-psu Case http://diyaudiostore.com/collections/dissipante
