I am sorry because of me you bought for your self go dap dd1 op amp 627 SM
I think for op amp muse 01 and muse 02 , you need to buy different socket for op amp rolling ,
Because op amp 627 SM socket is different from our BLUE go dap dd1 socket .
Yep, I always wanted to try the 627SM but didn't want to buy just to try. So buying for you gave me an opportunity to "try before you buy" before shipping it to you. I went back to the shop yesterday with my 627SM to compare against the Muses01/02 and to be honest though, I still can't say the 627SM sounds better than Muses01/02. There is something special about Muses01/02 still.
I talked to VentureCraft before buying the Muses01/02 chips and they said it'll be fine. Note that the 627SM is sitting on a daughterboard which is then regular dual inline socket. So you just have to remove the 627SM & daughterboard and plug the Muses01/02 chips in.
Don't get rid of your Muses02 yet.
Edit: Actually looking through the threads, I actually did manage to audition the 627SM during its prototype back in Feb but couldn't post/share it with anyone (until March when it was announced) :-
