Could I get a link to the Make A portable Amp thread
There was a portable Amp thread that was put up by DFKT awhile ago very informative, I am particularly looking for the link that took you to the video where it was explained exactly how to solder and make the portable amp.

Alright then can get a link to tutorials that members consider vaey good to soldering.
I dont want to use youtube random videos to fix my equipment

This might be a good place to start for CMoys:

And there's the Mini3's:

And also the O2 from Nwavguy:

I mean, I've not built a portable amp before, but I've just built a radio recently for my degree that involved some simple amplifiers, and that was after aeons of lectures and nonetheless vague understandings and calculations. Though I have to say that the cmoy schematic seems really simple and is probably a good place to start off with. But frankly I cannot imagine going through the pain of building any electronic device without a picoscope, dc generator, a frequency generator and a breadboard (none of which i, a first year engineer, possess, especially the picoscope) anymore.

Also, regarding soldering, don't you just take a piece of soldering iron, a soldering gun and... just solder?

The tanngentsoft mention made me remember this article by Andreas. It's the only DIY article I can think that might be the one you're looking for.

Here are a few instructables about CMOY and some other portable DIY amps.

I had also thought of building a CMOY, but saw it could take a lot of time, so dropped the idea, even though I'm good at such DIY. BTW, how does the CMOY compare to portable amps from Fiio etc? I guess no one here might know since hardly anyone here would have built one.
