CMoy Pocket Amplifier Common Cmoy Cmoy in parts A CMoy is a pocket headphone amplifier originally designed by Chu Moy on the Headphone Resource Site and public discussion Forums. The headphone amplifier is designed around single or dual-channel op-amps such as Burr-Brown's OPA2134 or OPA2132PA, however, a wide variety of op-amps have been successfully implemented. The op-amps directly drive headphones, even though they are not designed for such low-impedance loads, leading to poor performance and audible differences between op-amps that would not exist in a good design.[1] The amplifier's design is quite simple. 1. system requirements to successfully run this application and its modules the following hardware is required as minimum configuration:Pentium 3, 800MHz+ CPUWindows 2k/XP64MB+ RAMGeForce3 or better graphics card (16MB+ VRAM)DirectX 7 or OpenGLSoundcard input functionalityup-to-date sound and video card driversstandard keyboard please note that for a show/exhibition environment a better configuration is desired. software has been written & tested on: Dell Inspiron 8500, 1.4GHz Pentium 4, 512MB RAM, GeForce 4Go with 64MB VRAM, SigmaTel soundcard. 2. installation this app can be run from anywhere on your hard disk or even directly from CD, although in the latter case it is advised to have a fast CD-ROM drive to avoid delays when switching between modules. no other installation process is necessary. simply launch the file "macronaut_hub_v019.exe" and follow the instructions below. 3. dual screen support
