Changing op-amps on Creative X-fi titanium HD

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

My titanium HD is using stock LME49710NA, and if I change to LME49720NA what kind of sound difference will there be?

 

Any suggestions for better op-amps to use? I'm pairing with HD650.

 

Any help will be appreciated!

You're the first one I have heard of who has one! First off I'm pretty sure those LME49710NAs the card comes with are mono op-amps which might or might not limit the amount of op-amps you can use with the card. So if you have some LME49720NAs ready to play around with it might not work since they're stereo op-amps. I don't know a whole lot, but keep that in mind and wait for more qualified people to post here and don't start changing op-amps just yet.

You might wanna look up some info about oamps if there's a thread about the auzen based x-fi cards. Let us know how you like it.

AFAIK, they were said to be delayed.  Perhaps they have been released overseas.

That info posted above was from a few months ago....

And your point? you know what annoys me the most about forums, when someone jumps on and tries to counter with something else which isn't really relevant, i was just pointing there's an estimated release date.

My point?  The info you posted is very old and said the card was going to be relased in March, did you bother to read it?

 

The card has been delayed from the original release date.  Not sure how that is not relavent to the thread.

What is wrong with this guy? He posts news from January saying it'll be out in March when it's June and no store has it yet. On top of that he gets pissed off at the person correcting him and being polite about it.

"did you bother to read it?" There you go again trying to put down, why else would i qoute the paragraph that says "March 2010 onwards", yes its an old post but its one of the few info on this card and like i said i was just pointing out there's an estimated time line long before, key word ESTIMATED and i didn't intend to be 100% accurate or be the latest.

 

So sad i have to spell this all out man, gosh!

And you know if you didn't show up with some half @ss counter statement like this without no proper proof or new links, it would have all been cool.

Face it, you got owned and your best card is the troll card, you couldn't even posted a link first hand to back up your claims, the best you had was hear say.

The LME49710HA is a single channel opamp and the 720 is the dual channel version.  For opamps that are in sockets, you will need to use single channel opamps to replace them as that is how the circuit is designed.  If you want to use dual channel chips in single channel socket/circuit you will need special adapters. The LME's are actually great chips, this is why many new audio products are coming with them as stock.

 

With your headphones, what is "wrong" with the signature you have now?  -If we have an idea of what you are looking for it makes it easier to recommend opamps.
