Matrix M-Stage amp review: simple, cheap, and excellent. - Page 296

post #4426 of 4838
The bottom one for the capacitor? I think. Op amp is tight, even tried a different one. I have to try the amp somewhere else in the house and see if the problem persists

Hi,

I'll change my Matrix m-stage op-amp . Normally it uses opa2134. I'll cancel this and change with dual ad797brz. I need an adapter for this .

I read lots of post about brown adapter. But I didn't find any photo or link for this.

Is this adapter suitable for this? or can u share link about any suitable adapter?

Thanks

this is just purely out of curiosity, but how well would a pair of hd800 work with this amp?
never heard any any sennheiser phone other than the entry level hd555.

I'm using the M Stage with T1's but I have tried it with the HD800's and it is remarkably good. It gets very good results that defy the price. I own other amps and I find that the M Stage with my opamp choice can compete with some very high end amps. It actually seems to like high impedance headphones.

Honestly with the stock opamp it is ok but nothing I could live with. My WA-2 is clearly superior when I use the stock opamp in the Matrix. Even the Lafigaro 322C I have is better than the Matrix with the stock opamp. Don't get me wrong, it's not like it's bad just no competitive with real high end equipment using the stock opamp. Just my experience.

You can actually order a free sample of the LM4562 at the Texas Instruments website. Best op amp I've heard with the Matrix (but I've only heard a few).

Yes, make sure you order the jewel version.

Or is it the duel version?

 

LM4562MA is the correct part number.

Totally agree with your suggestion. I'm not sure which of us tried this first but it is by far the best I have tried and well worth the price.
