LMH6321 has wider sound stage than BUF634.

 

I don't recommend this combination to OPA627 lovers.:wink:

why you don't recommend this combo to OPA627 lovers?

:D

The cleanest buffer I have heard is the HA5002. After going back and forth with Brown Dog they have made adapters for the 5002 to use in standard sockets. It uses a little more current than the BUF634, puts out slightly less power but is a little more transparent, IMO.

OPA627 has rich bass and treble shiny , such as a good anlog amplifier.

On the other hand , the sound of this combo is very tight , such as a  digital amplifier.

 

Example might be not so good … :confused_face:

You are not. Having own the DX50 myself, I'll go as far as saying the E12DIY completes the DX50. If anything, I think the lacking of texture is DX50's biggest weakness. and E12DIY totally cure it.

I took a look at LT1010 datasheet and notice the TO-220 package isn't pin compatible to to BUF634 / LME49600, so the buffer adapter can't be used. You will need to stick to DIP8 though clearance could be an issue and maybe more sanding is needed to clear the case. I tried a DIP8 on my buffer socket and it is a very tight fit in the case.

but the sound superb

hi hkfriends or ClieOS,

 

would you be able to show how you put the Muses 01/02 on the E12DIY? i am quite newbie on this :P

This^^^. Use the opamp removal tool that comes with the E12DIY to do the job, hold it firmly so the clamp will have a good grip on the opamp. Always removing it slowly, as some time only one side of the pins comes out first and if you pull it too fast, the pin on the other side will all be bend. Be patient and it really isn't very difficult to do.

 

The most important thing on inserting opamp is to make sure the orientation of the opamp is correct. Insert it on the reverse / wrong order will almost always instantly kill the opamp when powered on. There is a 'notch' on the socket that tells you which way is the front, there is also either a notch or dot on the opamp that mark the front. Always double check the orientation, then all you need to do is push all the pins in

Opamp & Buffer combination of my friend is LT1364+LT1010.

He said "no problem" :wink_face:

That's odd consider only one pin on the TO-220 is right. Maybe your friend is using DIP8? I am getting the DIP8 myself just to be safe.
