Product Details

The MAX4410 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board that evaluates the MAX4410 DirectDrive stereo headphone amplifier. DirectDrive eliminates the two large DC-blocking capacitors typically required between the output of the amplifier and the headphones. The MAX4410 EV kit is designed to be driven by the lineout of a CD player or directly connected to any stereo audio source. The MAX4410 EV kit includes RCA jacks on the input and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the output to facilitate easy connections to the circuit board.
