Auzentech X-fi Bravura 7.1 Sneak Peek - Page 19

post #271 of 445
I use Senn HD 555 and Senn CX 870. I use the CX 870 with music and 555 with games. Yeah, I know that 555 are meant for music, but that bass gives me headaches. I'm more of a highhead, instead of basshead . And the CX 870 is crystal through this card.

Just thinking of an opamp that might offer you a bit better bass response for that card and your cans. The LME49710HA would offer better low end bass but less mid so it sounds less "husky" in comparison to the LME49720NA.

Here are someother configuraitons I have been testing on this card:
Head amp: OPA2111AM
Fronts: LME49710HA
Rears: LME49710HA
CNT/SUB: LME49710HA/OPA227P
Sides: JRC5532 -I don't use the side outputs.


These OPA2111AM's I built sound great on this design. Actually they sound great in every design I have tested them on.
Head amp: OPA2111AM
Fronts: OPA2111AM
Rears: OPA2111AM
CNT/SUB: LME49710HA/OPA227P
Sides: JRC5532 -I don't use the side outputs.


I have also been testing out the OPA627 for the headphone amplifier and it has good synergy with that design.

Finally! Some audio card pr0n.

I see that I can pickup OPA2111AM at Newark for $28.00

TEXAS INSTRUMENTS|OPA2111AM|Operational Amplifier (Op-Amp | Newark.com

Then I just need to get a socket adapter and soldier it up?

Yes. I have been testing them for awhile they sound pretty good although they are a bit pricey.

I'm going for your recommendation and order the LME49710HA opamp with the adapter.
Auzentech, Inc. OPAMP

I will try it for the headphone output and front stereo output. Could you please explain me how many of these adapters with right - left channels do I need for these two outputs? I guess two of them, two adapters each with two opamps, but just want to make sure.
And how do I change the opamps? I just take out the ones in the socket (by pulling upright) and insert the new ones?

You require 1 unit for each stereo output. If you want 1 for the heapdheons and one for the fronts you need to purchase 2.
Yes, pull out the old ones and inster the new ones. If you use headphones all the time you may want to just go with one.

Actually it not that expensive after checking...
But you know for a fact it doesn't do dd/dts decode, only s/pdif-in?
The only other recent cards I've found seem to be creative, but decode apparently only works well in XP

Yes, I know for a fact. No input decoding just normal stereo PCM S/pdif input.
I have mentioned that fact to you that many of the cards that do offer decoding have had those features removed in Vista.

can the HP AMP with AD797BR handle AKG K702?

Yes, the AD797 will be used as a Pre-buffer, all the power for the amplifier comes from the discrete amplifier section. If you look you can see a bunch of small surface mount transistors. You will be fine as this amplifier has a great deal of power.

I think I am going to pull out some discrete opamps and have a listen.

Is the Bravura better than the Forte for music and movies? I know the Forte has the Creative X-chip and EAX5 but I was wondering if the Bravura is just the Forte minus those components/features or is it internally different?
post #284 of 445

Stock, the output sections are very similar. However, the Forte only has one swappable opamp on the front channel output. Other aspects are very similar such as the capacitors and layout. The BRavura 7.1 uses a software chip and the Forte uses a hardware DSP chip. The chips are different as on the BRavura gaming support is done through software. I put the Bravura aginst a Forte and played a bunch of games and they measured very close.

Thanks. I might as well save a few dollars and grab the Bravura instead.
