tone control ic

This simple tone control can be used in may audio applications. It can be added to amplifers, used as a stand alone control module, or even built into new and exciting instruments. It’s one IC construction makes it a very compact circuit, as only a few support components are required. Plus, it does not use a dual power supply. This means that the circuit will run from 9V to 15V (although the bass will be a little weak at 9V). The circuit is by Robert Barg and originally appeared in the Think Tank column of the May 1998 issue of Popular Electronics.

  1. S1 is a contour control. Volume is controlled by R11. Balance is controlled by R10. R9 and R8 control bass and treble, respectivly.
  2. J1 is the left input, J4 is the right input. J2 is the left output, J3 is the right output.
  3. The circuit is designed to accept line level or mic level inputs. if you are going to be using a stronger signal, a voltage divider will be necessary to cut it down to proper levels.
  4. You can, of course, skip J1-J4 if you plan to integrate this circuit into another

stereo tube amplifier

The circuit is simple, yet is capable of excellent performance. I designed it specifically for use as an amplifier for the digital sound card in my computer. Audio input can be from any two-channel line level device such as a television, CD player, or VCR. It is of the tube type, using only 5 tubes total with no more than about 45 Watts power consumption from the outlet. It uses 3 types of tube 1 5Y3 GT vacuum rectifier, 2 6SF5 GT high-mu triodes, and 2 6K6 power beam amplifiers. These are all full-size octal type tubes which are commonly available today for between $3-5 each.

  1. Email Weslee Kinsler with questions, comments, etc.
  2. The 6V6 GT tube may be substituted for the 6K6 to lower power requirements.
  3. C8 is for radio interference suppression and may be omitted.
  4. The 5Y3 GT tube should be mounted in a vertical position and be well ventilated. The 6K6 and 6SF5 tubes can be mounted in any position.
  5. Controls should have an audio taper.
  6. The power supply portion of this unit may be used for anything requiring 290-320v DC up to about 3 amps.
  7. The author has provided a link to an updated version of this circuit. The newer revision contains parts changes based on the author’s tinkering and experience with the circuit over the past few years.

sound level meter

This nifty sound level meter is a perfect one chip replacement for the standard analog meters. It is completely solid state and will never wear out. The whole circuit is based on the LM3915 audio level IC and uses only a few external components. This circuit can also be integrated into audio amp projects.

  1. V+ can be anywhere from 3V to 20V.
  2. The input is designed for standard audio line voltage (1V P-P) and has a maximum input voltage of 1.3V.
  3. Pin 9 can be disconnected from +V to make the circuit use a moving dot display instead of a bar graph display.
  4. Thanks to help from the forum, this circuit has been improved from the original version to include a peak detector for a more stable and viewable output. This page has been updated with the new circuit.

fm radio ic

This extremely simple FM radio receiver circuit is made possible by the special purpose TDA7000 IC. It integrates nearly all the functions necessary to build an FM receiver needing only a few external capacitors and a tuning circuit. Using a simple active RC filter made of only a single inductor, a few resistors and a varicap, this FM receiver will pick up broadcast radio between about 88 and 108 MHz. The mono output signal can then be used to drive a set of high impedance headphones, or feed a power amplifier.

  1. Unfortunately, the TDA7000 went obsolete a few years ago. The original version is made by Signetics (now Philips) and is getting a bit hard to find these days. There are, however, other options. Philips makes the TDA7010T which is a surface mount version. The TDA7021T is also available which includes stereo capability. They are electrically similar but are only 16 pin chips so you’ll need to compare the datasheets to build the circuit.
  2. The value of C3 is noncritical and can be between 10pF and 20pF. Minor adjustments to L1 may be required based on the value of C3.
  3. L1 is made by winding 7 turns of 24 AWG wire around pencil. Remove the pencil and then space the turns slightly.
  4. Frequency selection is via R3.

op amp radio

Here is a simple radio that is easy to build and inexpensive. In fact, you probobly have all the parts you need in your junk box. You’ll be suprised at the great reception with this little set.

L1 1 “Loopstick” Antenna
MISC 1 IC Socket, Crystal Earphone, Wire, Antenna


  1. The antenna can be a piece of wire or a telescoping antenna. 18 inches is a good length for in the city.
  2. The tuning capacitor is a regular broadcast band tuning capacitor. I got mine from a junked AM radio. I got the loopstick antenna from that same radio.
  3. You can change L1 and C1 to recieve different bands (eg. Shortwave). To recieve shortwave, try this: Make L1 30 turns of 30 guage wire wound on a film can and make C1 a 10-365pf capacitor.
  4. Combine this circuit and the 8 Watt Audio Amp for a really neat radio.

one tube regenerative radio circuit

A regenerative radio works by feeding back a small amount of amplified output of the detector back into the input. Thus it achieves sensitivity far beyond what only a detector could alone. This simple regen radio uses a single tube as it’s detector and amplifier; the “Audion”. It’s a great first project for those wishing to bring back some nostalgia by building one of the first amplified radio sets. Built on a board using point to point wiring and a set of period headphones, it can be a great functional conversation piece.
