Total Airhead Op Amp?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

So being new to messing with the innards of my gear, I just ordered 3 LME49860NA op amp chips, 2 for the I/V Section of 

my titanium HD (I will replace the buffers later after more research), and one intended for the output of my Fiio E9 (should I be

able to find the right tools to crack it open).

 

HOWEVER, because of the deals thread in the full-size headphones section (if I'm not mistaken), I now have a Total Airhead. Was too hard

to resist to upgrade from my slightly quirky E6. 

 

My main question is, could the LME49860NA work in the place of whatever the Airhead already has (I think it's a burr-brown? Very little info

around as far as I could tell...), voltage and socket wise? 

 

Any help would be appreciated. :)

I *think* the Airhead uses the AD8397 which is has a buffer built in. Even if not, I'm pretty sure the chip is not in a socket, which would make changing it out a bit trickier.
