“Sortilege” - enhanced Class D power amp

 



















Another 180W Class D amp based on the hifimediy T4 module. This time the input caps have been upgraded to Mundorf EVO oils and an additional 22,000uf of Mundorf MLytic audio grade capacitance has been added to the PS. Total caps with onboard Nichicon is 32,000uf. The filter caps are snubbed. Enclosure is attractive two tone, earthed and fused. A RFI/EMI power filter has been added and a ferrite choke on the power cord to block RFI. A 500VA tranni does the grunt work and the onboard Motorola ultrafast/soft recovery diodes for the rectifying. 

The amp sounds excellent, clean, clear and fast with optimum bass control. For the extra work replacing the input caps and adding the better filter cap the sound quality has improved. Other amp builders who have heard it agreed and its new own is very pleased. So am I.
