making Headphone Amp -- ChuMoy Amp2 --

Japanese/English

Japanese version here.

listmarkintroduction

I had enough aidio parts to make headphone amp.
So I tyied to make ChuMoy amp again.
I designed a amp for Dual Bipolar OpAmp.

listmarkcircuit

Circuit is almost as the same as the one of the amp using FET OpAmp.
The different points are folowing.
1: changing the resistor which decides bias current (100kohm to 2kohm)
2: increasing the capacity of coupling capacitor
3: determining the values of negative return circuit in order to cancel input bias current

1: is because bias current of Bipolar OpAmp is larger than that of FET OpAmp.
2: is for preventing from increasing cut-off frequency of High Pass Filter.
3: is that if we adjust the impedance of a parallel circuit, which are return resistor and negative input resistor, and the impedance of positive input resistor, input bias current will get minimum.

I put sockets in order to be able to exchange OpAmp and resistances easily.

Capacitors of MUSE series are so huge.
But they sound very nice, so I can't help selecting MUSE.
They are looked as if they were shouldering tanks.

OpAmp that I chose was NJM2114D.
It is designed for very low noise and sounds powerful.
The only negative point is big POP noise.

I chose SW-100 by TAKACHI.

ChuMoyAmp2 making4

I put peach colored LED for indication lump.
Diode stablized current as 15mA passing through LED.
It looks beautiful.

ChuMoyAmp2 making5

This sounds very powerful and deep.
I like this rather than CMoyAmp of FET OpAmp.

But thanks to NJM2114D, POP noise is big.

Now it is exhibited in Yahoo!Auction.
It was sold out, thank you.
