Finally:

SIP socket soldered in.

I have saved the stock Wima so they can be reused if wanted.

 

capmod3.jpg 

Top row: Wima and Vishay PP caps, 10nF and 22nF respectively, way too small a capacitance to be used by themselves.

2nd row: BlackGate NX Hi-Q 2.2uF, AVX OxiCap 100uF

3rd row: Stock replacement Elna Tonerex 10uF, Elna Silmic II 22uF, stock Wima Polyester 2.2uF

In the socket: AVX OxiCap 100uF bypassed with Vishay PP 22nF.

 

p/s: the oriignal plan to use Silmic II bypassed by PP doesn't work as the space isn't enough. My spared Nichicon MUSE ES won't fit so I didn't bother. Might need to get some smaller capacitance in the future but I am pretty happy as it is.

LME49720 is definitely the opamp for me.  

post #798 of 1688
Na or Ha?
post #799 of 1688

the dip8 one....NA i believe

post #800 of 1688
Yep dip8 is NA, the TO22 metal case HA version I found to sound a bit better, this could be related to the packaging the material is in. You can order 3 samples from TI for free just say you're experimenting.

Is it a better value for money as compared to muses and other expensive op amps? Or some other aspects?

Did not hear it yet, but Ive ordered 2 LME49710 for $1.75 each on Mouser. Im waiting the customs to release my  Muses, then I can tell you. For now Im on the "price does not matter", but according to other reviewers the LME is a pretty darn good opamp.. and come on 3 bucks is a bargain, can't go wrong with it even not listening to the muses.

 

Regards!

I am listening to the Muse 01 now. I have the LME49710 on order but I need to look at my op amps as I may have it already so I should also look through all of my op amps. I had the opa627 in the amp before these. I also have the 02 to try out. Both of the Muses I have are the real deal.

How would you compare the OPA627 with the MUSES01? Also which buffer are you using for those two op amps?

Will have to listen more but at this point I prefer the OPA627.

value? definitely as the LM49720 can be had for under 5 bucks.  I cant comment on either muse as i dont have them but seeing as their like 15 times more, I cant quite certainly say they're a better VALUE.  

post #808 of 1688

Has anyone bought genuine OPA627 recently?

 

kindly provide the link. I am hesitant to buy online as I am told that most of them are fakes.

post #809 of 1688

Mouser.com, digikey.com, element14.com (= farnell / newark), or rs-online.com are all very reputable electronics parts supplier. You won't want to pick up a cheap pair of OPA627 over eBay or some unnamed website as it is probably one of the most counterfeited opamp around.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and providing names of reliable sellers.
