Re: modifying an old philips cd160

The way I normally remove a DIL package is by sacrificing the chip, clip all the leads with snippers, so you can take each out as a single wire. The other way that works well is to use a elastic band around the end of some long nosed pliers to hold then shut, clamp the pliers on the chip with the bo...

Re: Richard Dunn

I guess that depends on your perspective and tastes. "Interest" is subjective after all. What is important is that it is "on topic", relevant and evidentially supported, including observations from RD's own cohorts which demonstrate the similarities. The topic is Richard. the only reason you seem t...

Re: Richard Dunn

The major different you forget to mention is that Richard runs a successful business making and selling HiFi.

I am at the point where if you are here just to pick a fight Kenyy, then we can stop right here. If you have anything more constructive to post, now would be the time.

I assume that the value is fairly high to prevent the op amp oscillating?
Not sure what you mean there WRT oscilation. The 220uf cap (if that's the one you are saying is high) is that value to give extended LF response, 220uf into 4k7 has a -3dB point of 0.15Hz

LME49720 would be my op amp suggestion.

Re: Hello Everyone
