You might see some improvement by removing the pot and using a DPDT switch with a few select resistor values set to your normal and low listening levels. I have had much success in the past by doing so and also doing the shunt mod. (Not the law fake shunt mod. This one http://www.wduk.worldomain.net/forum...read.php?t=198) The problem you will run into with the shunt is it will attenuate signal some and I don't think you have much to spare.

The alps blue is a good pot but it's not better than no pot.

Hmm, 2.5w, good bass, slightly toppy, smooth clear mids. . . That's just the thing for full range speakers. Perhaps some of the tang band? There's a goodly amount of available documented projects for those. There's often a notch filter involved, but a splurge on the inductor gauge (use thick wire inductor) will help preserve the efficiency.

I think that we all need a cute little "relax" system that's breathlessly clear, realistic, and takes up almost no space. . . because the "listening room" is not the exclusive location for music.

In my opinion, I think that you should preserve this project as a reference point, and I think that you should employ it at a location in your office or home, where it can be enjoyed regularly.

Congrats on the fine project!
With such good attention to detail, I can't wait to see what your next project will look like.

Thanks for the ideas on volume controls. I'd also like to add a extra input with a small toggle switch.

Further tweaks I have planned are to add 10uF Wima MKS2-XL around the chip - particularly on the input. I also want to see what effect it has to remove the caps on the output.

Ive thought about buffering with a good op-amp. What do you guys reckon?

My next project is to make something special out of my Cambridge Audio 340A SE. Its a LM3886 based amp with (upgraded) LM4562 gainstage. The biggest compromise it has is solid state input switching. I have an idea to use the channel LED outputs from the microprocessor to control relays for input switching. So far I have added some nice caps/diodes and a better opamp with fairly good results. (Id like to post a link to the thread but I fear you will not post due to some of the arguments there have been).

Do you still have this TEA2025 project? I've been planning to build one for years to work with small speakers and high-power headphones.

Did you find it necessary to implement capacitors on the input? According to the datasheet they are only used to remove noise caused by cheap potentiometers. I had planned on building my unit with no volume adjustment as I planned on using it with a PC.

Can you show what your final values were for every capacitor? And what did you do for a power-supply?
