Well I have done a bunch of recording with my Auzentech Meridian 2.1g and it sounds incredible with the dual LME 49710HA s in it!!!
I use Foobar for playback and it gives really excellent results. Still the 49710's are harsh in the treble department. I did not use a "flat"
RIAA curve when recording. I used the bass and treble on my pre amp to add in bass and treble to my liking. In the Auzentech controll
panel there is a thing called Bass Extender or something like that where you controll the crossover point. It adds sweeteness to the treble.
Still the Ortofon x5-mx extracts alot of treble detail! So I was looking for a mellower opamp.
Now I am split between OPA637AM and a OPA2111(both are to-99's). I was wondering with the 637AM if it is better sounding than a AU per se,
and better than a opa2111. I have also heard it said the opa637sm's are really harsh sounding. I really enjoy the soundstaging of the LME49710HA's tho,
what opamps in that LME family sweeten the sound up??
I found a site where they said the AM HA etc were ratings, the A's being the worse and the H's better quality. I wish I could find it again
so I could post the link.
I do love the sound of the LME49710HA's tho! The soundstage is very 3d. When I switch to Digital processing on the Audio card, the
sound does warm up a bit, and add in the Bass Crossover thing and its very nice. Still the Analog section really has the best quality sound.
It is just drier and less warm than the digital processing.
I was also thinking of buying one of these to put on the line to the amp.
Here is a neat headphone kit too:
OK opinions please!!!!!
Oh and let me add, I dont listen with headphones!!! I know this is headphoner site, but still you are only people talking about opamps, so here i be!!!!
