Balanced B1 Buffer
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi:

I have read through the B1 buffer thread and while there are several references to using the B1 in balanced configuration there has been no schematics posted.

I want to use the B1 to buffer a 4 deck pot. I need balanced line in and balanced line out.

Will the following work (using the Pass B1 Buffer)? Only one channel is shown.

Are there any changes required?

Thanks
Doug

I wrote to Nelson directly and asked him the same question as above.

He responded as follows:


I will be giving it a try.

Regards,
Doug

For some reason the quote from Mr Pass did not show up in the above post.

His reply was

That should work fine

Doug

That's because I replied in special ink that only you could
read.

:cool:

Hello,

a friend of mine uses a configuration like this for some time now (over a year), works perfectly.

regards

Hi Doug,

Newbie here. I am interested in building a balanced b1 buffer. Now I am trying to finish the 200 over pages of thread on the b1 buffer. Your thread is the only one that I have searched and came across that discuss about balanced circuit for B1.

Just a few questions,

1. What do you mean by volume controls are ganged?
2. Since I am using 2 b1 buffer boards, how do I tie in one volume to control both balanced L/R channels?

Thanks.

Answer:
1) It means that the volume control (in this case) has 4 distinct variable resistances or if you prefer 4 "channels". You will also see them referred as to 4 ganged pots (I do mot know the explanation of the word)
2) Buy using one of these (AS AN EXAMPLE). This type of potentiometer is able to handle 4 channels.

You could also use two stereo volume controls, and then have a volume control for each channel. This might be easiest to manage.

Thanks Eric and Aaron for your kind explanation! :)

Anyone have any thoughts on the best implementation of this differential idea but using a bipolar power supply with +/- rails?
