Default Cmoy Distortion...HELP!

I've been having some distortion problems with a Cmoy I just built. It actually sounds more like the amp is clipping. I've built one before with no problem and I use it all the time. This time I decided to use a different OPAMP and add output caps in the place of R5. The caps I used are 4.7 uF Tantalum Caps. I though this might have been the problem but i removed them and it acts the same. I also have dual micromini Pots to adjust the channels seperatly. The OPAMP i am using is the TI NE5532P. The Cmoy powersup and you can barely hear the music except when it hits certain notes the phones pop very loudly. Any insight?
