  1. Ok, you can use a defreciancial Cirket to get an unbalanced signal from a balanced signal.
    But here’s some food for thought.
    Lets just say, you’re both designing and building a push/pull amp.
    You would have to have a faze splitting device in order to get that topology to work.
    In this case, the op amp would have to work the other way around aposed to how Paul explained it in the video.
    You would have to take an unbalance signal, and convert it to a balanced signal.
    This is how all push/pull power amps work.
    One output device is going up, while the other output device is going down.
    This is plane and simple as that.
