That's due to those 100uF 16V electrolytics going to ground on the feedback loop of the gain op-amp (that is, where you put the AD8397). I'm not 100% sure, but most probably if that op-amp is made to drive a low impedance their capacity will form a high pass filter.

On the other hand, in this particular design those two caps are needed to take care of the DC offset with bipolar opamps like the NE5532 (and therefore the AD8397). Jumpering them, I noticed a definite increase of DC offset even with the LM4562 (and output buffers). Of course no bass cut for sure if you keep the buffers.


Btw, here's a hint -- try the AD811 for the output buffers. I just discovered these and they look just *perfect*, especially if you can deal with the fact that they're only specified for +/-15V and +/-5V, and that their quiescent current is a conspicuous 14.5 mA each.
Erm, hello "blindbuy", welcome to Head-Fi. Hope you enjoy your time here, however brief it might be...

Would a Go-Vibe 5 be a nice compliment w/ a Beyer 770 pro/ 80ohm? I am planning to use is specifically for PC gaming.

Or would you wait for the GV 6?

guys guys guys, you have to STOP this! I hadn't been in the forums for a while, and just yesterday I bought a spare iriver H320 AND a set of V-moda vibes on the sale forums... around $175.

And today... today I see THIS!

Geez, to top it off, I was listening to the GoVibe V5 (I was one of the first who jumped on it upon release) with my MS-1's and really enjoying the sound, now you tempters go and tell me V6 might sound superior.

YOU
GUYS
ARE
EVIL!

(caresses his wallet) There there, sweetie, it will be alright... there there...

Andrea
Banned
aka HeavySoul

aka Albert
aka layman
aka joe_average
aka altglos
aka Mr boobi
aka mikesand

And this in only one month....
What is this about? Andrea got banned for some reason? Can someone fill me in on this? I ask because I had asked him for advice when I was an amp newbie. Was he a poser of some kind? What happened here?!?!?

My understanding is that banned members are not to be the subject of posts.

Oh, sorry. I was not aware of that. The reason I originally asked is because it WAS due to "Andrea" that I got the V5, which I really enjoy. (shrugs)

Didn't mean to overstep any boundaries, just wondering. My apologies.

Please don't apologize. It is a vague area and fortunately does not happen very often in this forum.

Being a very close friend of him, I can attest to the fact that he always acted in clear conscience and without blatant prejudice of any sort.

That said, he tells me to let you know he's very happy to have successfully advised you on the Go-Vibe v5. He says to enjoy it without worrying for exasperated head-fi controversy & flame (which is what a internet forum thrives on).
welcome.....back?

I have to admit I would be very interested in upgrading to this if it will give me the 'wow' factor that I currently lack with a V5. Sure it gets rid of hiss, but I'm left wondering if there can be more...........oh, more....so much more.


Funny thing is I was really set on getting a tomahawk in a while for a portable amp as it has the battery life and apparently sounds good and has slightly different gain options and is sooo tiny. But I'm seriously tempted away given the price difference and the fact that this has some opamp rolling.
