well that was my question really, can I join 0vA and 0vB?

the opamp is a buffer in effect, it's just that I use it for a bit of gain....strictly speaking I don't have to have any gain, but the problem with sig gen version 1 was that it maxed out at 2v RMS and that was the main reason for looking at version 2 with a bit more output....

With that isolating DC:DC converter yes, that's why I suggested it or something similar.
Little known fact, coherent thought can destructively interfere with itself leaving no thought at all, that’s why I prefer incoherent thought.

I did a bit of editing today....got a bit of checking to do..but hopefully get some boards back before the postal lockup as I'll be twiddling my thumbs over the holidays while the rest of the famille are en France...

the gold pins are actually sockets but they have the same footprint..

if it works I'll probably have 4 spare boards if anybody is interested for the price of a stamp.

It’s been a difficult birth. 4 years with 3 breaks when something has come along to put the project on hold and made it end up in an ice cream tub in the corner of the workroom. Each time I’ve gone back to it I’ve had to start from scratch as I couldn’t remember what I’d done before, and I didn’t understand the previous notes.

A bit disappointed because I realised the super slick rail splitter was only really good with a battery supply so I had to cobble together a normal supply with a transformer…oh waily…c’est la vie.
