 29th July 2006, 04:31 AM #1 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Jul 2005 Location: BKK Resistor Value on Inverted GC I am using the inverted GC schematic on OPA541 chip. Normall the schematic use 10K R in and 220K R feedback which give 22X gain. But I want to reduce the gain to be around 6-4X, the problem is should I use the higher value R in to be around 47K or lower the value of R feedback to be 50K? What the difference do they made?
 29th July 2006, 04:44 AM #2 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Oct 2004 Lower the feedback resistor 47k resistor might add more noise. In general,the higher the resistor value, the higher the noise Are going to use a preamp or a buffer?
 29th July 2006, 05:12 AM #3 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Jul 2005 Location: BKK You mean higher R in add more niose right? How about R in =5.2K and R feedback = 22K, Is this seem better? Or R in =220 ohms and R feed back = 1K, Is this too low? Yep, I decide to have Tube preamp infront of my gainclone.

R or the feedback resistor

How low you can go,depends on the output impedance of the component before the amp

Do you know the preamp's output impedance?

If you have these op amp sockets, you can break off four pins and use them for resistor sockets. Just push the resistor leads until in snap into pins

I do not know the preamp's output impedance, but I decide to use this schematic but with 6SN7 tube instate of 12AU7

 29th July 2006, 03:35 PM #7 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Oct 2004 Have you done a search for 6SN7 srpp schematic?. I think the resistors values maybe difference from the 12au7. Voltage needs may also be differance
 29th July 2006, 03:56 PM #8 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Jul 2005 Location: BKK From what I know 6SN7 and 12AU7 can be substituted. Moreover, 6SN7 and 12AU7 can do SRPP with 150R, 820R, 1.5K resistors with the voltage around 150V to 300V. If am wrong please correct me .
