Well, I don“t believe that the problem be the capacitors... I used a pair of Nichicon electrolytic capacitors on serķe and the result is the same.

The offset on this ampli is a "russian-mountain"

I don't know the meaning of "russian-mountain".

But I know that if you'r setup is like this:

There shall be no DC offset to measure with the VDC meter.

Thanks for your answer.

Yes, is my setup, but I never take the DC values with the headphones connecting.

Regards

PD: "russian-mountain"; when something mimics the movement of a roller coaster.

Then you can't use the measurement, try to connect a 1 kOhm resistor as a dummyload.

Well, the offset is around 140 mVolt when the my amp is warm (with the Non Polar Cap) and I don“t like this. IMHO, 140 mVolt is very dangerous for a headphone. I supposed that with this Cap, the offset would have be around 0 mVolt.
There is maybe something wrong elsewhere with your board, mine is barely around +-25mV Offset at startup, and it goes down to around +-3mv after around 10 minutes when warm, and I have NO capacitor on output, only 2,2uF on input.

Thanks guys

If I conecct a resistor on the output, the offset is 0 mvolt, but I think that my board have any problem because when I start it up (with out dummy load) the offset goes down to 200 mVolt to around 0 mVolt and when it warns up goes to 140 mvolt

I will check the rest of the board.

As I said before, the measurements without the resistor is of no value, measuring on a capacitor without connection on both side is a waist of time.

If there is no Offset voltage with the 1 kOhm Dummy load, then I am shure that the amplifier is working OK.
