DIY Audio

DIY audio has been popular with the audio electronics enthusiast since my youth, and many years before that. DIY audio grew with the introduction of the transistor and even more so with the introduction of the op-amp or operational amplifier.

Before I set up Graham Slee Projects in 1998 all my preamps and amplifiers were "do it yourself". I must admit I had the adavantage of working in electronics and audio - I've been doing so since 1974.

I cannot share all my designs with you, but here I've selected two under the DAK (DIY Audio Kits) banner: the Novo headphone amp and the Genera phono preamp. I hope to be adding more DIY audio projects and kits.

Also featured in this section is the DIY Solo upgrade - the latest version being the Solo Ultra-Linear Diamond Edition.
