the one showing back engraving is muses02 with print 53d

 

 

this one is muses01 showing back with small 0 and J engraving....

I remember that you bought them from Taobao? 

I want to try muses, too.

Taobao offers some really good deals, but really worry about buying faked products...

True. I'll probably order some JRC opamp from akizukidenshi.com soon, might as well adding the MUSES in my shopping cart given how cheap they are in Japan. Have to order JRC opamp from Japan anyway since no local dealer is selling them and ordering from U.S. just isn't feasible due to the high shipping cost.

What does the Muse cost in Japan?

Which is half as much as what Mouser is asking for. Even with shipping ang handling fee included, it will still come out much cheaper than from the U.S., before adding the ridiculous amount of oversea shipping Mouser wants (near $50 in my case).

Is there any place that is US shipping friendly from Japan? I looked at the sites but hard for me to figure out.

Same here, I am using Tenso buying service as well. As far as fee goes, it is $15 for the buying service, $5 for the shipping in Japan, and usually another $15 for oversea shipping and handling from Japan to Malaysia. So it is a total of $35, gives or takes. It might not seem like saving much at first, but should still come out cheaper if you order a few opamp at a time. I am thinking of ordering 9 JRC opamp including the MUSES, for just under $100 total. If I ordered them from U.S., it could cost me almost double.

Oh, I didn't know there are fake MUSES8820s on the market.

Here is some photos of legit MUSES8820.

All MUSES op amps I have seen have two capital letters on the back.

The font face of the fake one looks a bit thinner.

The width of "E" is too narrow.

The shape of "0" is too oval.

Your MUSES01 and MUSES8920 look legitimate.

I guess your MUSES02 and MUSES8820 are actually NJM4580.

 

 

 

OK, I also share a real MUSES 8820 , which is a bundled IC from Japan Elekit TU-HP01 Portable Amp

Well, not just for E12DIY. I am trying to build up a collection of opamp for future use as well. Beside 4 MUSES, I also plan to get NJM4580, NJM4556, NJM4558, NJM5532 and NJM2114.

Hi all, I would like to share mine (attached photo) to give everyone a reference.

 

I bought the Muses01 from Akizukidenshi shop directly on last year but the Muses02 was bought from a reseller (I forgot from whom) a couple years ago.   The Muses01 has a package of a plasic bag only but the Muses02 comes with a metal box (and a DIP8 socket).  I'm not sure my Muses02 is real or not now because I'm also get confused after reading the post.   I have also bought the Muses02 from Akizukidenshi for my friend previously.   I will ask my friend to borrow his for me to compare them.

I've been in and out of these threads, so please let me know if I'm clearly missing some key concepts. The other question is if the DIY will ever be redistributed?

 

THanks


1. The DIY has no bass boost circuit, no crossfeed either.

 

2. According to Fiio the DIY is a one-off, there are Fiio dealers who still have limited stock atm though.
