Based on your review I put in opa-sun in my Audio-gd 5.2 and it makes listening to classical music indeed a far bettter experience than without.
So thanks a lot for your review.

I contacted Audio-gd today because I wanted to buy a set of Audio-gd Sun opamps... and received the following disappointing reply:
"

Dear XXXXX,

 

I am sorry , our all OPAs had discontinued.

Kingwa"


I'm a sad panda now.

You didn't miss anything that special.

 

Good chip opamps can't be beat in the end.

Hello everyone.

 

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!

Thanks!

 

P.S. This sound card delivers +/-12V to the opamps.
