 6th November 2013, 04:10 PM #1 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Jul 2013 Need clarification on TA2024 voltage gain I want to raise the input gain for my TA2024 amp. From the TA2024 chip manual is says that:AV = 12(RF/RI) where RF = feedback resistor, RI = inverting input resistance. And i guess AV = voltage gain? So if i want higher input gain I have to raise AV, right? If thats true I can do that be raising the RF resistance. I am asking because I was told to solder a 4k7 resistor over the RF resistor (22k). This should raise the gain. But when i try to calculate the total resistance from the 4k7 and 22k i get a lower value than the 22k ohm. That makes me confused.

Yes. Raise the Rf to increase.

You have been given wrong advice then. That would dramatically decrease gain (by -12dB or so).

Are you sure you read the advice correctly? Could it be that it said to replace the Rf with a 47K resistor for +6dB increased gain instead?

This was what i was told

But i think you are right about replacing the resistor. I will try that.
Thank you!

The resistor highlighted in that pic seems to be the Rin. Piggybacking a 4K7 resistor on top would indeed increase gain. Last edited by Saturnus; 6th November 2013 at 04:58 PM.
 6th November 2013, 05:03 PM #5 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Jul 2013 Yes the picture is for another version than the one i have, but i thought it would be the same. My version is this http://www.sure-electronics.net/down...V300%20SCH.pdf By looking at the datasheet i guess that i should change R15 and R21. From what you say they should be higher than the 22k ohm that they are now, right?
 6th November 2013, 05:08 PM #6 diyAudio Member     Join Date: Jun 2005 Location: Copenhagen, Denmark On your version you either replace the Rf (R15+R21) with a higher value or lower the value of Rin (R18+R22) for example by piggybacking a resistor on top. Either would increase gain.

 6th November 2013, 05:56 PM #8 diyAudio Member   Join Date: May 2013 Saturnus, increasing R15 and R21 would increase the resistance right? Then it would be more difficult for a lower power device to drive the amplifier? I thought, and it worked with my version of the amp, decreasing the total resistance to about 4k ohm would increase the max volume with lower power outputs?

Yes, as you should.

Higher resistance of Rf = higher gain

Lower resistance of Rin = higher gain

You probably inadvertently decrease Rin, not Rf.

 6th November 2013, 07:19 PM #10 diyAudio Member   Join Date: May 2013 Oops that may be the case. Rin=RI on the datasheet right? I thought it was R1, the number of the resistor on the board. Which of the two is better, or is there no difference?
