Xonar Front Panel
Any advice on replacing the 4580s and 5532 for the front panel connectors?
I tried replacing the 4580s with LME49722 but somehow or another it seems they are unstable in that position. (hearing noise in headphones)
I tried the AD8620 in the 4580 position as well since I noticed the LME49722 is not unity gain stable but I'm still hearing noise...
One odd behavior I have noted is that I hear extra noise in my headphones when my computer is active; for example when I scroll though this page with my mouse, copy a file to a USB flash drive, or there is hard drive activity I can hear extra noise in my headphones (interference from motherboard causing ringing ???)
Besides the annoying noise floor headphone audio sounds quite good through modded Xonar front panel connections though...
Any ideas for troubleshooting?
EDIT: nvm I think my front panel audio is just noisy in general from PSU noise and such...I guess I'll try to shield the front panel audio cable or something...
EDIT: Yay weird fuzzy noises are gone once I got myself a nice shielded cable: FRONTX - Bulkhead/panel mount Headphone & Microphone - supports Intel AC 97 audio header/pinout
So my Xonar is now officially working with AD8620 or LME49722 in all opamp positions. I basically have AD8620s in all front channel audio positions, and LME49722 in the side and rear positions. Also got 1200uF Nichicons on the power. Sounds great!
