@Tuttut - The input to the amplifier shows it already going through a pot so thee is no worry about the input being too high.

Coupling the arduino output through a capacitor is however a good idea.
The circuit shown only a 220uF capacitor across the supply, I would recommend at least a 1000uF.

Make sure the ground of this circuit is connected to the ground of the arduino.

Hi,

Double check that your capacitors are the right way around as well

Looks like the problem was a dry joint on one of the caps in the amp circuit - it's working perfectly now :-)  I also reduced the input signal to the amp by running the audio output pin through a cap, resistor and then tying it to ground via another resistor.  works a treat now.  Thanks for the help folks!
