Compared to the 49710 it sounds smoother because it does not have that much treble, the 49710 is a bit too bright. Soundstage is probably a bit better than the 49710.
Yeah, i remember that and still so sad.
Right next to 49710, the AD797 is pretty much my all time favorite op-amp.
Looks like you got a somewhat similar set-up to Kenion.
Thing is with the treble, i use Audioengine A5+ and Audez'e LCD-2 which isn't spectacular in the treble area, so the 49710's help with this.
How much smoother is the OPA827? (how lower is the treble?)
I could use a little bigger sound stage, but not by too much.
Mainly want to focus on an op-amp with more detail/treble/separation.

I can clearly hear more detail and seperation from my music using them over the AD797BR's in the buffer. However, they may tend to get hissy in certain songs depending on what combo you use with them.
Have you tried the OPA827 in buffer?
How does LME49990 compare to 49720/4562 in buffer?
I'm not too much of a sound stage guyy, one of few reasons why i sold the HE-500/HD-800/AKG K701.
If you're sure that they have more detail and separation, it's my queue to get them! Those are the two most important thing to me.
How is the treble/bass/neutrality compared to the AD797 or 49720?

Read back to earlier pages bro, this was discusses for at least 10 pages.
It doesn't come with gain switch, unless you RMA it for a new one and specifically request for the switch to be installed.
Even with that, the gain switch muses doesn't sound as good as the the one without.
