I contacted Audio-gd today because I wanted to buy a set of Audio-gd Sun opamps... and received the following disappointing reply:
I'm a sad panda now.
I'm reposting here, as this thread may get more attention, and maybe someone can help.
I want to replace the (1x) NJM2114 and the (3x) NJM2068 on my CREATIVE X-Fi Elite Pro sound card.
-- I'm looking for a good clean accurate and precise sound (but not boringly flat) --
I have in mind the OPA1602AID as i heard very good things about it ..but i also read that AD8599ARZ is a pretty good candidate!
According to @majkel, this would be the top 5 list:
1. LT1028ACN8 mono
2. OPA211ID (issues like in the review) mono
3. AD797BRZ (finally I found slight imaging issues and timbral imbalance) mono
4. LME49720MA stereo / LME49710NA (I guess I like the former a bit more) mono
5. OPA-Sun v.2 (thick, flawless, likeable sound) stereo
but as you can see, most of these are mono.. and i need stereo. And i don't know how they fair against the opa1602aid & ad8599
I would be willing to try 2 mono LT1028ACN8 with an adapter, if they're THAT good.. although it would cost me an arm & a leg.
But still, i don't know how they fair against the (waaaaay more cheaper) OPA1602AID
Can you guys please help me out with some opinions/suggestions??
Any advice is appreciated!
P.S. This sound card delivers +/-12V to the opamps.
