Mini Preamplifier

Easy to operate thanks to AVR micro & LCD

Mini Preamplifier
This small pre-amp has both a good sound quality and a simple and flexible control interface thanks to the use of an ATmega8 microcontroller. Two digital potentiometers are used to control the volume, and a two-line backlit LCD displays the volume and input source settings.

Extra info, Update

Regrettably a few errors have crept into the circuit diagrams in Figures 1 and 2. In Figure 1, components K1 and K2 are drawn incorrectly and an inductor is missing between the analogue and digital ground lines.

In Figure 2, the relay contacts are drawn incorrectly in their non-actuated state, which suggests all inputs are interconnected. Also, two miniature chokes are missing in the +12 V and –12 V supply lines.

The electronic version (.pdf) of the article contains the corrected diagrams.
