I didn't have measured, but to "my ears", it sound better with only one resistor (6 ohms) across primary, and x50 tube stage.
Thanks

My impression too. Not a great difference but definitely better. Maybe the transformer dislikes any small dc imbalance...

Hello Analog-sa

I happy you confirm what I feel, but without real measures, I will always have a doubt ...

Here the last opamp output stage and the relative measurements.

Some capacitors will be add in the future to create a low order filter for high frequency.

P.S. The GND on this module must be the real DAC analog gnd not the Voffest.

New op-amp output stage.

33pF compensation on first stage

103=0.01uF ceramic compensation on negative shunt

reduced voltage to 12V on outptu stage

OP627 on first stage (with dual chip dip adapter) and OPA2134 on second stage.

now there only a little noise on headphone probably it is possible to eliminate it reducing the voltage gain on first stage and setting I/V resistor to 10ohm instead of 5ohm, I will try soon.
