Title: Help me search for the right thing, audio amp
Post by: tweakd on Jun 02, 2010, 09:30 am
I am looking to build a small amplifier circuit and while searching i realized that i am not completely sure what im looking for.

So let me first explain what im doing!

I am trying to have a way of tapping into my analog red/white rca connections from my xbox 360 into the tv and using that signal in a small amplifier that will power a set of headphones.

tv ----- T---xbox
          |
          |
          |
and over by my bed the box with headphones


while searching i came up with this page of all sorts of diagrams but im not sure which one is best.

Im leaning on this particular one but again i am unsure if this is the best path.

Any input is greatly appreciated.

BTW, I am aware this is not arduino related but i figure its close enough and its really the only dev forum im active on right now.
