Hi northernsky,

I think i am having the sane issue.

I removed the multiplexer mute chip.
I Also added the four 470 ohms to reduce output voltage.

I realized one of my amps didn't work.
So I tried a little SEP amp with capacitors at it's inputs and it sounded well.
So I am guessing I have the same DC problem.

Now I am adding 2 PIO .33 UF caps to test with my main amp and see how it goes.

Even with this work arround, there should be a cleaner way of fixing this issue?
I am afraid of those bypass caps ruining the sound..

Listening to the new setup now.
It sounds well, distortion seems to have dissapered.

I don't have a pre, just volume on a Mac.
My speakers are super sensitive so I guess I will adjust again those opamp resistors to reduce opamp gain a little more.

What makes me happy about this setup is that I am not noticing a high frequency roll-off as when using a potentiometer before the power amp Push Pull el84.

But even when my system performace has improved
Is a coupling CAP between dac and power ideal?
I guess, a less component approach is aleŠis better when possible.

Ideas to remove opamp stage bias:
1) test upgrade opamp power supply?
2) matching resistors in opamp section?
3) or just use a very boutique cap ?

So, somebody decided to problem of noise in pauses, after shorting mutes (short cut the 4056) It is very unnerving to hear the noise =))))))
If someone is interested in measuring of this DAС
lampucera.png ? Yandex.Disk
