 29th November 2002, 12:14 AM #11 PeteMcK diyAudio Member   Join Date: Feb 2002 Location: Western Sydney DC across phones? wouldn't the circuit at http://space.tin.it/scienza/fladelle/Page31.htm put DC across your phones? (oK, less than 3V, but still.....) any ideas on how to fix this? (earth the load resistor & feed phones from a cap???) The simplicity of the circuit appeals, though. Pete McK

It looks like they forgot the cap. Should be one in series with the phones.

No cap is needed???

I am not sure there is going to be any cap.
Gain is set for up to 300 ohms, R3/R1 = 6.8
And 1.5 V over 300 ohms is
is only 7.5mW.

The only danger is when you put very low quality
16 ohms HP in. Gives 140mW at DC.

But then you almost certain can change the
R3 to 10 kohm for gain=1
This gives a DC voltage at outputbelow 1.0 volt
Like 56mW over the phone.

To publish a "dangerous" construction on the web,
and not be corrected if,
seems to me unlikely.

This design has been around for several years.

If you have very low impedance HP, 16/32 ohms, of course you
can use a good Output cap.

For 100 ohm and and higher, the max power
will be below 25 mW.
If the circuit is built so it puts out 1.5 Volt DC.
