Choosing components for DIY Headphone Amp


2008-01-07 10:36 pm

I'm new to DIY audio and want to build a Headphone amplifier which take a digital signal (optic fiber) as input.

Today I only have the integrated soundcard of my laptop (Intel) and Senheiser HD555 headphones.
The main goal of my project is to bypass the integrated soundcard, decode the digital stream with a DAC and amplify it to se if I can realy get something that sounds better.

For this matter I selected following parts :
- DAC : Phillips UDA1351TS
- Everything to build a fully A-class amplfiyer based on this sheme :

Are these choice correct or can I find a better solution ?

Many thanks in advance for answers.
