This is a great audio amplifier circuit based on single power IC TDA7294. TDA7294 is intended for use as a high quality audio class AB amplifier in hi-fi applications. It has very low noise and distortion, wide bandwidth and good output current capability, enabling it to supply high power into both 4? and 8? loads. It has both short circuit and thermal protection, so is quite robust.

With the addition of a handful of parts and a suitable power supply, this module will deliver over 50W RMS into 4 or 8 ohms with < 0.1% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) and < 0.1% Intermodulation Distortion (IMD). A similar circuit was published in Elektor magazine, 11/96.
It is also suitable as a replacement power amp stage, or upgrade for many existing amplifiers of between 30W-50W, provided they have a suitable dual supply, and most do.
