Post Analog output stage for DAC (AK4584)


I have this DAC, AK4584:

I'm asking your opinion what to put to its LOUT & ROUT pins. There isn't nothing yet.

I'm thinking to use that with Corda HA-1 II Headphone amp and modified Sure Electronics Tripath TA2024 amp (sureelectronics Tripath boards?)

Any ideas? Some kind of opamp circuit? What opamp to use? Dual AD843 or something else? I will appreciate all help.. Thanks!

That is A/D and D/A interface chip...

If you need differential to single end analog stage, one was discussed in detail in this thread:

Experience with this DIY DAC ?

Yeah, I'm thinking to use its ADC as a measure device with Eric Wallin's preamp 2 microphone preamp (green inputs). I don't know why there are capacitors in the picture because text says there are internal HiPassFilter that removes DC offset? So I don't have to put any caps to signal path?

Here is some schematics of that AK4584:

DZF in Zero Input Detect Pin (output) so I think it can be used to turn amp off when there isn't anything in the ROUT & LOUT. It says in the page 8 of the datasheet that DAC analog output is 3 Vpp (@5V VREF). So if I use opamp, I don't need too much gain?

I did some more searching (a little too much, I think) and there was op amps (which sounded promising) like LM4562, OPA627, AD843.. And then I found discrete opamps / discrete output stages. And then.. I'm now considering Lampizator.

So hard to decide what to do..

"Analog Outputs are single ended" .... you can feed them straight to the pre-amp with reasonably high input impedance. No need for any further gain neither.

The inputs can do without the capacitors.
