They're both really cheap.

 

Only issue is they come in sets of 5!! Anyone in Australia want a pair of LME49710s or a NJM5532 (or both?)

I don't know much about those but if they are a straight fit in the E12DIY, I will buy them off you.

Assuming they're DIP8, you'll probably have to file down your case for them to fit. I did. A few lucky ones can pop them in and get the case to close without flexing the board, though. Only way to know is to try...

LME49710 is single channel so it has to be in SOIC and mounted to a blank dual adapter.

Aha, probably should've guessed that by the reference to a pair of LME49710...

Thanks for bringing this to light.

I'm rocking the MUSES02 and OPA627 to much satisfaction right now, but this sounds right up my alley.

Interestingly, I was also able to fit the DIP8 into my amps without filing the case. So I'm going for the LME49720.

Maybe I will need to get a third amp. One for MUSES02, one for OPA627, and one for LME49720.

Ha, ha, just kidding. Or not. We'll see. biggrin.gif

I think I already gave you an NJM5532, but I could be mistaken. If I have though, give it a try (even if you have to leave the case open a bit) and let us know what you think.

 

You're welcome to a pair of LME49710s. If you give me your adapter next time we catch up I can solder them on for you and then return them.

I have tried the  opamp you gave me and it sounds different for sure.

 

The print on the opamp is too fine t read though I will try t see if I can get some info off it.

 

In the middle of switching and swapping all the time, just cant make a decison;)

That's my problem too!! :confused:

By the way, it should look something like this:

 

 

If it's obvious, white printing then it's the NJM because other chips like OPAs, ADs, and LMs have more yellow coloured printing that's even harder to read

post #1436 of 1660

Yup, that,s the one.

 

I actually had a few leftover opamps from my PB2 so got a bit mixed up.

Can i still buy E12DIY? I have the standard but i find vocals abit blur and the sound stage abit compressed. I like the bass and mids though. Can the E12DIY fit the bill?

You can get them through a couple of different Amazon retailers.  I got mine from these folks:

They have the silver version too.  Hope this helps...

Nice! Please share your impressions.

 

Speaking of MUSES, I decided to modify my case today to fit DIP8 chips and slipped and slightly wounded the exterior of the case :-(

 

I used some chrome pinstriping tape to cover the nick in the aluminium... I think it looks ok, but have contacted Fiio to see if I can buy a replacement case.
