Changing a DAC chip in an amp

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I'm buying the Racoon SG200 tube amp/dac combo and I'm planning on getting a Wolfson WM8740 chip to replace the stock Micronas UAC3553B chip which has been around since 2002 and is only 24bit/48kHz. I'm wanting to know if its a easy as I think its is, where you just pull the old chip out and put the new one in. If anyone has done this before could you let me know if there's anything I need to do or something to lookout for would be a big help.

I'm pretty sure there soldered into the board and that changing the dac might not be feasible.
