Which of these opa's would you recommend for games

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I don't know ifany of you I know this or not but Gigabyte's new motherboards have interchangeable opa's on the motherboard it's self. I was wondering which of these supported opa's you all would recommend for a gamer and music causual music listner like me.

I have a set of Audiotechnia Ath 700's headphones and a set of Ediffer S330D speakers.

The list of supported opa's are : OPA 2134, 2011, 2107, 2604 and 2227; LM 4562 and 49720; NE5532; JRC4558; LT1358; and finaly AD827

You might be better off selling off the Audio Technica ATH (?)700 headphones. 

and putting all your "audio" budget for something like the ATH-A900X or AD900X headphones.

Well the board only has 2x opa's on it. So it's not like I'll be spending a lot of money. I am just wondering which of the above would be the best for me too get.

2x OPA1641 soldered onto an adapter would make a perfect choice :normal_smile :

Rather not have to go soldering as I am totally inept when it comes to that. Are there any equivalent opa's that that have the “legs “ on them like the opa 2011? I have to be careful as I dont want to damage the board or voif my warranty using a non supported opa's you all know how finakey manufacturer can be about warranty.

The DIP8 package is mostly obsolete these days, newer chips only sell as SOIC8.

 

OPA1641 is "unity gain stable" meaning that there's no chance it'd mess anything up for DAC filtering purposes, this is a far better sounding chip than any cheap DIP8 dual opamp you could find IMHO....of course there's always the NJM Muses opamps family but these cost 50 bucks a pop.

Ok thanks for your help so what would I need to make the, 1641 fit in the DIP8 socket on the motherboard?
