RC4560-based headphone amplifier

This SMD op-amp project uses the TI RC-4560 dual op-amp chip and a salt water-etched PCB. The builder got the op-amp as a free sample from Texas Instruments and scavenged all of the SMD resistors from old hard drive electronics. The results are not pretty, but they’re functional. The circuit used (with some changes) is the Chu Moy design found here. The CMoy circuit is not SMD.
