I read about the LM4889 at the Modern Device website, so I decided to try to make up my own. Soldered the chip onto a breakout board (not an easy task):



Breadboarded up the rest (need a couple of decoupling caps, a coupling capacitor for the input, and a feedback loop to adjust the volume):



Sounded pretty good out of an old speaker I had lying around. Not particularly loud, but probably fine for headphones.

Could be useful for adding audio output to a project.

I ordered a couple of audio amplifiers, the breakout boards run on 5v (I presume the IC's do too, perfect for Arduino Projects), here's the board I got, only a couple of bucks all up, I soldered on the legs and hooked it up, sounds really impressive!



If not for the fact I've since disassembled it, i'd upload a video showing it off (both right and left channels)

infact!

That looks cool. Not sure about this though:

This item is located overseas where power plugs may differ.


Still, I ordered a couple. I'll sort out the power plugs when it arrives. :P

What a difference an "8" makes :D  ... inexpensive, too.

Back on the other end of the spectrum, these look interesting, if I could manage to solder one...
