What is the best schematic ?
If there are better one's please let me know. I wil use it for an aleph 5.

Berry,
OpAmps are second choice parts for this job. To do it properly you need a fully differential amp (OPA1632,THS4131....)

First of all, this is the wrong forum for this thread. It should be in SS or Pass labs.

AFAIK, using a diff opamp will actually make a very mediocre phase splitter.

The best topology for phase splitting with opamps is this:

Which is what the inside of a DRV13x chip looks like.

HOWEVER, it is silly to use an opamp to do the splitting for an Aleph IMHO. The Aleph frontend should do a better job of phase splitting itself. If you absolutely need more gain I suggest you look at a discrete phase splitter.

Try to compare directly (sound-wise) DRV134 to OPA1632 and you'll easily comprehend that DRV134 is by far inferior circuit.
I'm not willing to start a debate on this - just delivering commonly known fact.

Have you taken a look at these:

Thank you all !

The reason i do not use an Aleph pre is because it does not fit in the nad T162. The NAD tuner/preamp has no balanced output.
I can use the power supply of the NAD to drive an op-amp, to build an balanced output.

Last question,

Is this the circuit to use to go from unbalanced to balanced ?

i built the real thing.

bridge preamp

drv134 version

I build the drv134 version, the problem that i have more noise than sound ?

The Amp for wich i will use it, is an aleph 5. When i put 2 capacitors in the + and the -, the noise dissapear. Why is it not possible to drive the aleph direct by the drv134 ?
