25 Watt Audio Amplifier Circuit

High Quality simple design, No need for a preamplifier

This is a 25 Watt basic power amp that was designed to be (relatively) easy to build at a reasonable cost. It has better performance than the standard STK module amps that are used in practically every mass market stereo receiver manufactured today. When I originally built this thing, it was because I needed a 25 Watt PC amp and did not want to spend any money. So I designed around parts I had in the shop.
