Improved Hearing

Many thanks to ...

KE8JWB (Randy), KG5GTW (Bob), N0SO (Mike), N0SM (Steve), W9EBK (Don), and K8WPE (Dave)

… for your responses, all very helpful, to my recent, "Any suggestions on an audio amp appropriate to Hilltoppers 20&40?" query.

Confession: My hearing improved greatly after a thorough cleaning of my earbuds. Oy!

Happy Holidays 4SQRP

Got an email blast from CQ that their calendars are on sale, $3 off, thru midnight 12/26.

Hi
Would the circuit that replaces the TA7642 in the Nouveau 75
make the Murania any better? And would it work with 9 volts?
tnx

Radio Shack DSP-40, catalog number 21-543 is the one I have. They also made older models of amplified speakers without the DSP. One model or another was in the Radio Shack line up for several decades.

Yes, it does look like they are out of stock presently. Site links however do provide possible equivalents. Thanks much. Will follow through  in near future with final results and info I hope to be helpful to others.
