No, the regular speaker was put in at Output#1 directly at the request of Spanky. It has nothing to do with the preamp output as it was connected to output #1 directly.Digger said:Wierd that it is ok with a regular speaker and not with headphones etc.
The pop sound is coming from the preamp output after the voltage divider resistors (refer to schematic). I can take headphones and connect them in place of the amplifier and the pop is there so I know it's coming from the pre-amp output of the Elk (i.e. after the resistor dividers).
I also tried a number of combinations with capacitors (values/shorting them/etc...).
