Little Gem MkII may have fried my ipod? Answered
I`ve built and was testing a Little Gem Mk II amp on a breadboard and for audio signal input i used my ipod shuffle 2nd generation. What happened was that the output sounded very distorted ( probably too large of pin 1-8 bypass capacitors) before the ipod stoped working.
For the first two times i pluged it to the pc the orange light came on steady, not blinking as expected. From the third time on i got no response at all.
So, is the amp - and me - guilt of killing the ipod? (considering that it was 4~5 years old and may have died of natural causes)
