Fleawatt Cigar Box Amplifier

This amplifier was built by request.  The customer requested I mount the inputs on the front, near as possible to the potentiometer.  The signal path and power supply wiring is ultra short.

The outputs are on the back. This is a 5 watt per channel TPA3110 board and is powered with a 12 volt rechargeable SLA battery or DC power pack.

Gold plated binding posts, gold plated RCA connectors and teflon coated Cat 5 wiring throughout.

Fleawatt Betsy Cello Speakers

 I recently built these resonant style cabinets for a Wild Burro Audio Labs "Betsy" full range driver.  They are similar to the Auditorium 23 Rondo, Saba Cello and Saba Reso speakers.  I used maple ply and finished them with a 100% natural oil varnish.

I'm happy to answer any questions you may have if you are interested in a pair.   Just send me an e-mail!  

TDA2616 Canary Wood Amplifier

This class A/B amplifier was built using a Philips TDA2616 integrated circuit.  The AC power is transformed and rectified to 18 volts DC.  The chassis is made from solid Canary wood and the top and bottom plate are steel plate enameled with a hammered copper finish.  Custom machined, solid aluminum spikes are affixed to the bottom plate for vibration isolation.

Tang Band 1808 Speakers

I built these ported cabinets for a Tang Band 1808 full range driver.  They are crafted of Baltic Birch and Walnut.   The Tang Band 1808 is an incredible sounding driver and worthy of a high ranking among the best full range speakers available.  The downside is that it is relatively expensive.  These speakers now live in the home of a professional recording engineer and are his leisure listening reference speaker.

Fleawatt Solid Cedar Class D amplifier

This amplifier was built for my long time audiophile friend, Rob.  The chassis is made from a board of solid cedar that I hand selected at a lumber mill in Portage, Ohio.  The top and bottom plate are solid steel plating that is enameled with a textured copper finish.  The panel meter is 1950's vintage.

Fleawatt TPA3110 Audiophile Amplifier

I built this amplifier in September of 2012.  The panel meter is a WWII vintage military surplus meter.  It indicates the DC voltage going to the amplifier IC.  The chassis is made from one inch thick, solid walnut.  All audiophile, gold plated hardware was used. This amplifier was purchased by Dan P.
