"LM386 makes a great low power amp. Surprisingly loud with the right speaker. Your build is also a lovely piece of furniture into the bargain."

"Poorness, it's just a very basic lm386 circuit, with a 10k pot for gain control and a 47k cap for smoothing the dc supply, there is no buzz or any other noise induced with this simple circuit,"

Paul,

been out and about for a week so apologies for delay. British Forces Post Office only allow shipment of shoe box size and less than 2kg. I think you would find it difficult to ship a CBG to theatre.
