DAC-Opamp Implementation: Opinions on this Design (does it work?)

  1. Oct 22, 2013 #1
    Hi all,

    I'm fairly new to DAC's, so I'd like your opinions of this design before something explodes:

    I am trying to implement this particular design to process sounds.
    I've added capacitors for decoupling noise, and found this to be the most condensed design that can fit. I am not so certain however about having the GND signal in between the two capacitors.

    Can someone please verify if this is safe?

    Safe? 5 vdc ... yea. Heck, I've designed many audio (synthesizer related) circuits with no test instruments other than my ear. Give it a try.
