mainly they have been designed for

maximum power and minimum dis-
tortion, resulting in modules that will

only fit one or two per case (unless you
use a huge case!).
We have published amplifier designs
using all-in-one IC ‘chip’ amps like the

LM1875T. They are always quite com-
promised, both in terms of maximum

power output (typically topping out
at around 30-40W) and performance,
with distortion and noise figures far
worse than a discrete amplifier.
This design offers an excellent
compromise between the two. It’s
cheaper and easier to build than
our best Hi-Fi amplifiers while still
delivering plenty of power with very
good performance. And because it’s

so compact and has modest power
supply requirements, you can quite
easily jam half a dozen (or more!) of
them into a reasonably sized chassis.
We designed these for driving
multi-way loudspeaker systems using

an active crossover to split the sig-
nals into frequency ranges to suit

each driver. This approach needs one
amplifier per driver (woofer, tweeter
and so on) but you generally don’t
need as much power per amplifier,
since they are working together.
Initially, we looked at using small,
low-cost Class-D amplifier modules
which could deliver 30-50W.

quite a bit of searching, we concluded

that there was nothing readily avail-
able with distortion performance

within an order of magnitude of what
we’d call ‘Hi-Fi’. Many smaller Class-D

amplifiers exhibit high-frequency dis-
tortion above 0.5%, worse than many

decent loudspeaker drivers!

In the end, we looked at larger
high-quality amplifiers and shrunk the

design. The result is the Humming-
bird Amplifier Module, which packs

a surprising punch for its size, while
keeping many of the low-distortion
characteristics of the larger amplifiers
from which it takes inspiration. It can
achieve up to 60W into 8W or 100W
into 4W with distortion below 0.0008%
at 1kHz and less than 0.008% all the
way up to 20kHz. That’s way better
than ‘CD quality’.

If you are familiar with larger ampli-
fier topology, then an examination of

the circuit diagram (Fig.7) will show

many similarities between the Hum-
mingbird and larger siblings. On the

other hand, for compactness, the prin-
cipal differences are:

n We opted for one pair of output tran-
sistors, rather than two
