Yeah 11x Muses01 is CRAZY...although, looks like he might be from HK, it might be CHEAPER for him to get the Muses01 there!


Do you think I should get 2x Muses01 for about $64 or 2x LME49710HA for about $56 for the headphone section??!

Is it possible to get 2 pieces of muses for $64? Any link?

I am thinking about getting them from here:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1p-MUSES01-High-Quality-Audio-J-FET-Input-Dual-Operational-Amplifier-Z19-/181140368660?ssPageName=ADME:X:eRTM:US:1123

Seller agreed to do 2 for $64. However, I am not 100% certain if they are genuine. From the photos they look genuine, but hard to tell.

If any forum member has bought muses from this seller, it may be better to check from him before placing an order.

I think I might pull the trigger soon and try him. If they turned out to be fakes. I can always get a refund from paypal!

Oops, sorry, double post
post #2423 of 3068

would you be buying 6 or 2 pieces?

post #2424 of 3068
2, I already have 6pcs. I just want the extra 2 for the headphone section
post #2425 of 3068

Oh...That's great! I very much look forward to your experiment.

Huh, So of the 11 total op amps in the E1, even the official ASUS MUSES01 version it only comes with 6 of the 11 upgraded!? Thats kinda lame. And not even any special branding on the exterior of the unit for the MUSES01 edition.

I wouldnt be too confident that the Muses 01 is suited for any of the other positions. Personally, I trust the highly qualified engineers at Asus who designed the E1 to know best which opamps to swap and which to leave alone.

Agreed. Now If a place I trust (Digi-Key) would just get those MUSES01 back in stock I might consider trying them.

Problem is, it best to get match serial MUSES01. So far I've seen 101, 201, 202, 204, 901. Not sure if any other serial exist.

Does the serial make a difference?
