Based on the popular and low cost TBA820 amplifier IC, the iPod amplifier is a real hit with students. The project has been carefully designed to minimise difficulties with external wiring.
Although the amplifier can operate at 6V it works better from 9V (PP3) or higher. (With a suitable speaker and power supply, it can deliver 1.6W). The only permanent wiring to the PCB is the power supply (which is passed through two threading holes). Audio input is via a 3.5mm Jack socket which adds together the left and right channels of a stereo signal. Two PCBs can be used to reproduce stereo sound by amplifying each channel separately. The speaker is connected via a 2pin JYK connector.
The PCB includes a 'beat' indicator LED which flashes in sync with bass beats.
