Audio-Balanced Line Driver – Unbalanced Audio to Balanced Audio Converter
This audio-balanced line driver project enables to drive hundreds of feet in length of cables without becoming unstable The project is based on the THAT1646 chip, which is a new generation monolithic differential line driver that offers improved performance over conventional cross-coupled designs. Based on high performance, fully differential op-amp exhibits low noise and distortion, high slew rate, and wide output swing. Output is very stable when driving difficult loads, and output is short-circuit protected. The operating power supply is +/-15V DC, XLR, and RCA connector provided for output and input. D1, D2 are the Power LEDs, C7 decoupling capacitor, Ferrite Bead L1, L2, capacitor C6, C8, C9 take cares of RFI noise, Capacitors C5, and C10 acouple the common-mode feedback loop. This changes the loop operation from serving the common-mode output current at audio frequencies to serving the common-mode output voltage to 0 at DC. This results in much lower common-mode output offset voltage. D1 +VCC Power LED, D2 -VEE Power LED, CNX-J1 single-ended unbalanced audio input, CN3 Male XLR balanced audio output, CN1 power input, CN2 or J1-CNX audio input.
