Pardon if any of the following has been covered. The data sheet is very handy for audio designers working with 600Ω loads, but also presents apparently conflicting specs, and lacks 2KΩ load data.
1. With a 600Ω load, is 7V the maximum output before THD+N takes off into the unusable region (as shown in figure 6-7), or is it 600mV from either rail (as stated in the Voltage Output Swing section)?
2. Can the amp put out 10V into a 2K load at its lowest THD+N? The actual load in question is a non-negotiable 1476Ω. The system's maximum level before significant noise increase has to be ≥22dBu.
3a. What is the minimum feedback resistance possible when the amp is used as a voltage follower (Av=1) at frequencies below 200kHz, but most importantly below 20kHz? Put another way, what is the lowest frequency transient (at, say, 10V) that might trigger latch-up in such an application? The amp is slower than a 5532, so unlike the LM4562, it would seem to be a good candidate for traditional 0Ω feedback buffer applications at audio frequencies.
3b. If feedback resistance is required, would ~500Ω be adequate, or is 1KΩ preferred? Could something smaller, such as 100Ω, be used? Would a feedback capacitor in parallel be required for stability, or rendered unnecessary due to the relatively low slew rate?
Thanks. Please let me know if I've asked any of these questions incorrectly.
