Simple circuit forms peak/clipping indicator
The simple peak detector in Figure 1 is the result of a need for a single-5V-supply, level/clipping indicator for a multimedia-PC sound system. The design is unique in that it detects both stereo channels on a single peak-hold capacitor. All the adjustments in the circuit simultaneously apply to both left and right stereo inputs.
