Thanks for the offer, but I wouldn't be able to offer any useful input on it. I'm admittedly not an audiophile and there would have to be a serious flaw in the design for it to sound any different to me than the other dozen amps I have sitting around.

[QUOTE=wushuliu;3136022]The RCAs are a problem. Maybe someone can figure it out: They have differential inputs with jumpers by them for unbalanced. I have no idea what balanced rca's exist that could be used in the first place. Anyway, I tried to bypass the rca inputs but nothing worked. I tried to solder connections directly to the pads which normally works fine but there is something to how the differential input is set up that I am missing because nothing works. So I have to plug an rca into the jacks and run wires from the plugs to the chassis inputs, creating an unneeded extra connection.

If someone can explain how to avoid having to use the stock rca that would be great.


HI Wushuliu,
Can you elaborate on the rca input.
What is a differential input ? How do you manage to get the sound with the standard rca input ?
Would be nice if you can post a picture of the rca input in your set up >.
Anybody planning to make a pcb for this chip ?
thanks

The board has jumpers for standard rca. The development board pdf in the first post has pics so you can see the jacks and explains differential input.

lol I don't think this thread has generated enough attention to have anyone rushing to make a pcb yet.

LINN and RINN have to be grounded for unbalanced inputs; that's what jumpers J9 and J10 are for. Make sure J14 is not in place.

A couple people have made PCB's for the TPA3106D1. I still personally prefer that IC over the 3100D2 for thermal dissipation reasons, but the 3100D2 will obviously make an easier PCB layout.

Any word on whether the bass is shallow?

I don't know about you people but I find this whole chip amp business confusing. First, I read that STMicroelectronics TDA7492 is allegedly superior then I read the TK2050 is superior...

Welcome to the world of subjective opinions.

I bought the evaluation board and powered with a 12 V SLA last night.. I tried it with and without buffer and Buffalo 2 dac . My speaker is 91db efficient and has it own powered woofer.
I listen for about 1 hr. The impression may not hold later. with run in.
Compared to my modded Trend audio 10.1, the bass and high is lacking.


Hi Wushuliu, what is the size of the power supply caps and input coupling caps in TBI ??
What is the power supply V in in the TBI?

thanks
