LM386 Audio Amp

Since entering the wonderful world of electronics, I have had an itch to make an audio amp. Probably one reason is that I am sans a real audio system right now and I am digging the hardware aspect of the hacking more than the software.

I started reading and wow there is a lot out there in amp world; but like with the Arduino I am pacing myself. I settled on a project, you can check it out here.

At the same time I am using this article to learn the math behind it all. Geesh, it has been more than a few years since I have used some of those brain cells and there are new things to learn, which is cool.

Here is the board with the hardware installed on it. So far things are looking good.

Here it is all wired up!! I wish I could say I fired it up, but putting the last wire in at around 1:45am my eyes were a little crossed. I am going to wait to get a good nights sleep then double-check my connections and continuity before applying power.

I will be sure and let you know how it turns out.
