Please don't worry about the "wire with gain" crowd here. I've seen quite a bit of the snake oil
that the super hi-fi elitists have tried to espouse - 00 gauge super oxygen free wire recommended
for runs of 20’ or less, $1000 IEC power cords (6’ no less!), cable elevators to reduce stray
capacitance in your speaker runs, etc. As long as it costs more, it’ll make it sound better/more pure.
You are probably close enough with the 470uF output cap that it really doesn’t make THAT much
of a difference, especially at those levels (as you said).
What the guy was saying about the electrolytics is that there is a (paraphrase) “sweet spot” in the
value lineup where this so-called distortion is lowest. I think it was in the 2200 – 6800 uF range.
I’ll have to find that link for you again.
What improvements would you suggest for my last schematic? I’m open to quite a bit, but my
current stock of actives is limited to what I show. That and my situation does not allow for much,
if any, discretionary spending.
Here’s a link to another possible low power amp:

What do you think of this one? I'd love to hear your thoughts - all who have contributed to my threads,
as I highly value the combined knowledge that has been shared.
