The diyAB "Honey Badger" Class AB Power Amp - 150W/Channel
The first Class AB power amplifier to be featured at the diyAudio Store. It has been designed from the ground up with the sonic character, power output and most of all the DIYer in mind. With a basic power output of 150W at 8 ohms, this power amp is sure to have a place in every builder’s projects list. Not to mention its flexibility and adaptability to work with most output devices available locally in wherever country you may be.
Please visit the Honey Badger Helpdesk Thread for any questions you might have and for a definitive list of links to all articles and discussions about the amp itself, the build guide, schematics, and Bill of Materials. The designer OSTripper is active over in the Honey Badger General Discussion Thread which is where all the action is.

I'm not done tuning it yet, but it is built and has been tested on big speakers, and it pushes them very well and sounds better than what I currently use in the living room. This was my first amp that I have built, and the support thread was very supportive. Very pleased with the overall experience and the sound is great! Nice amp, thanks!
Excellent board quality (especially for the given price) including huge solder pads. Fast (< one week) and smooth delivery to CH. Looking forward to the build. The only points I could wish for at the moment are (i) a left/right symmetric design, (ii) place for pcb mount RCA terminals at the input, (iii) more closely placed speaker output and speaker ground terminals. But then again, it is a very solid design and build for a hardly visible price.
I cant use my Dale RN60 resistors the holes are too narrow. Otherwise som nice boards
If you follow the build guide you will have yourself a very nice amplifier, it's powerful with
loads of detail. I would suggest trying to run this amp at or near the 100ma max setting, it really opens
up at that point. The quality of the boards are really good and service from the store is always good.
If you follow the build guild to the letter you will have yourself a really nice sounding amplifier with a lot of power.
The boards are well made.
The bords are high quality. Haven't build it yet.
DHL cared the shipment in USA till Italy, but not till my address. In Italy DHL delivered to Poste Italiane in Milano. It took more time (15 days) from Milano to Florence (300 Km) than from USA to Italy (10000Km?) ad an extra cost of Euro 15,02. Why not use DHL for the last part of the journey? DHL is present in Italy and in Florence as well and they are doing good job. The result is that the shipment was slow and (in my opinion) too expensive. Nothing to say about the quality of the boards, which is very good
Quality of boards is very good, wondering that there are two different schematic drawings of it...
