Default Basic OPA134 amplifier

I got a couple of OPA134 OPamps, and I would like to use them to build a simple amplifier. This is my first DIY project.
Can you please show me schemes I can use?

Thank you very much.

Thank you very much!

I got couple of questions:
1. What is an audio buffer?
2. How can I turn positive to negative voltage? (48V to -/+15V)
3. C6, What does 2u2 stands for?

2u2 means 2.2u. put the unit of mesurement where the dot goes. This helps confusion when schematics get photo copied. you can get confused and put a 22u cap in insted.

are you intending this for a preamplifier? if yes, use a two stages with opa134 in noninverting topology with gain about 2.1 (1k +1k1), with the potensiometer between them. dont use any caps on the signal, just built a hefty power supply (like 2x4700u + 50 VA / ch + 317/337)... results can be surprising...this is what im using.. really good..dynamics, clarity and huge soundstage (627 lately).. to convert a single supply to dual you could use sth like a buf634 with a voltage divider to generate the 0V potential.. where is the intended 48v from? Using the supply of a power amp isnt adviced, and this will create problems with ground interfacing, too...
i am currently using 60,000 uF of capacitance in my preamplifier..
