alright, will try this out as soone as I get the parts.

Am I crazy? no ground connection on load side? : AC115-250V 6A Unipolar Solder Lug Terminal Power Line EMI Filter CW3-6A-T | eBay

I see a connector for ground on LINE side (based on the picture on the ebay link). However, ON the schematic drawn on the part, I see a ground connection between the 2 caps in parallel near the LOAD side.

Just want to make sure that I have a proper earth ground connection If I use such a device on my AC wall connection.

The headphone Cold/Return output comes from the amplifier Cold/Return.

This way the headphones see a source impedance of a tiny bit less than 1r
and the amplifier sees a load a bit higher than 100r

If the 100W amplifier were turned up to just reach clipping the 100r will dissipate less than P=28.2Vē/100r = 8W
Use at least 16W of resistor for this arrangement to get 40dB of attenuation from a 100W amplifier.

Use your own values to determine your attenuation and impedances and dissipations.
mmm ok .

My headphone jack has 1x left, 1x right, and the ground. Both my output ground are connected togheter at the jack. How do implement the 1r resistor? I'm confused...

So far, I've just connected 1x 100r to both left and right channel hot signal.

So you nearly short out each headphone speaker with a 1R resistor? Best case scenario is that you have 32ohm headphones. Worst case is 600ohm headphones. So 28V out of the amp gives you around a quarter of a volt to drive the headphones? This won't provide enough volume.
If I wanted to drive headphones with a chip amp I would change the gain of the amp to 10 for lm3886 or lm3875. Then I would add a permanent attenuation circuit on the input. If I were super cautious I might put a 100R resistor on the output of the amp and it would be a low wattage resistor because headphones inherently contribute to the total resistance seen by the amp resulting in very low power output.
Unless you have some way to mute the amp on power up and down I would not leave my headphones plugged in during turn on and off.

Maybe something like this schematic. This schematic ignores capacitors and power supply. Just giving an idea for attenuation and gain as well as current limiting the output.
If you have a pop on turn on then it could blow the headphones if they are plugged in when you turn it on. If you turn it off with headphones plugged in you could have a problem with too much DC getting to the phones as a lot of times the amp can have large DC offset while turning off.

if 100r+1r gives too much attenuation (-40dB) then change to 100r+3r3 to give -30dB
Don't go and change the stability margins of the chipamp by reducing it's gain.

Default Mundorf caps

Anyone used Mundorf caps in their GC? Care to give a report?
Thanks

I can visualise 6 locations for capacitors around a chipamp implementation.
All will require selecting capacitors to suit the duty at that particular location.
Do you intend replacing all the capacitors with one type of Mundorf?

No. Just in place of the 2x 1500uf Panasonic FCs usually recommended on the amp board. Using same value of Mundorf Mlytic AG. I have them so will give them a try anyway - just curious about other's experiences of using them. Also going to try 10k Supertech caps + snubber on the rectifier board (but not at the same time )
