A fun audio amplifier that can be used with an MP3 player or smartphone
The Nutclough is a portable audio amplifier complete with a loudspeaker, that can be used with a MP3 player, smartphone or similar audio source.
The kit was developed as part of Calrec's 50th Anniversary celebrations and is used in public workshops.
Initial design was carried out by Calrec and with PCB design by Boldport.
A special edition of the kit was given away at Open Source Hardware Camp 2014.
