Audiophile Power Amplifier

Nice implementation of the well proven Jaycar KC5201 Kit modules. Extremely solid power supply with a big toroid and overkill 6 x 8000mfd smoothing capacitors. Massive headroom and power reserve.

Can be driven direct from a cd player or ipod/tablet etc. Has a stereo volume control on the hardwood front panel. The rest of the chassis is aluminium with massive heatsinks which remain cool with normal use. Premium gold parts have been used for the input RCA's and the output binding posts.

Can also be driven from a preamp, smart tv, computer, mixer, DAC, bluetooth box, chromecast etc. This kind of performance usually costs thousands of dollars.

125 watts continuous (very conservative) .03% distortion
