    TLE2426 or Dual 4.7Ohm Resist.'s?

    I am still figuring out how I will build my first CMoy, and as I dont know if the 20-40mA current will be enough to please my Aurvana's. (42 Ohm, sensitivity of 115dB / mW) Should i create the virtual ground by a TLE2426 or should i use the usual 4.7KΩ Resistors? And I am curious if using...
