Evaluation Kit for the MAX13330 and MAX13331

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX13331 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board that evaluates the MAX13331 DirectDrive® stereo headphone amplifier. DirectDrive eliminates the two large DC-blocking capacitors typically required between the output of the amplifier and the headphones. The MAX13331 EV kit includes two RCA phono jacks on the input and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the output to facilitate easy connections to the circuit board.

The MAX13331 EV kit can also evaluate the MAX13330 IC. This requires the IC replacement of U1.
