But I still have a few questions to see if I understood everything:
Normally the only difference between the opamp and the buffer is that the buffers are optimised for unity gain use. So if I wanted I could put the red opamps in the silver's place but it would probably not help the sound quality?
Too bad there wasn't more participation in the Op Amps for Dummies iBasso D12 thread.
I'm not sure if you can swap the red with the silver.
I would assume the answer is no!
Before you swap any out, make sure you make a drawing of the original layout and make sure you understand where Pin 1 is. Good luck!
Lately I've been using LMH6643 with Dummy Buffers. Seemed to work well with my Q701. Can't remember why!
I'll have to try swapping some around again, I haven't done any swapping in the D12 for almost 2 years....
