Ventus EZ
 
2 Attachment(s)
Half way between Ventus and Ballsie, the Ventus EZ.
  • The same high-current output section as the Ventus
  • The same opamp-based balanced-to-single-ended converter as the Ballsie
  • Adjustable gain and configurable compensation
  • Happy with capacitive loads
  • Coming soon (very soon)

Interesting and apt description Brian. :)

I design Ventus EZ as a slightly simpler to build version of Ventus. It has all of the features of Ventus (even the key reference designators are the same) and can be used any place you would use either ballsie lite or Ventus. The only difference between it and Ventus is that it uses an opamp for the amplifier circuit instead of a discrete circuit. The main benefit is you will get is better DC and AC characteristics. No offset to adjust, and better DNR/THD because of the much shorter feedback loop. I know that numbers don't tell the whole tale, it's just a fact.

I designed this as an easy drop in for people wanting to add headphone outputs to existing projects.

Nice pics Brian!

Cheers!
Russ

Nice looking!
Is the board size that of the Ventus or the Ballsie?
It looks "shorter" than the Ventus so I assume it cannot be stacked with Legato/IVY. I was thinking it might be perfect for getting SE output with a dual-mono Buffalo/Legato 3.1 combo.
Cheers,
Nic

Thanks!

It's 1.8" x 2.4"

It would work quite well for that task.

The Ventus EZ will likely (eventually) replace the Ballsie Lite in the product lineup.

Will the regular ventus still be available?

BrianDonegan 11th April 2011 09:08 PM

Absolutely.
