my buddy gave me an old stereo reciever, with the left channel out.
i thought id poke around and see if i couldnt make it work.
well, most of the larger caps appear to be exploded, so i geuss ill snag some parts!
man that transformer i beefy, maybe relocate it to an amp project some day?
cool knobs i geuss.
but my big question is the STK083 power amp chips, im hoping to salvage them (and there huge heat sinks) an build them in to my casio build to power a small internal cabinet.
i found a data sheet that says 15 to 40w, should be enough to bump a small room.
any ideas? is it worth the work of salvaging these to build a little power amp, or are there smaller more efficiant power amp chips out there nowa days.
also, they need 32v+/- probibly gonna be an issue
heres the data sheet: http://pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datasheet-pdf/view/90370/ETC/STK-083G.html
