    Which of these are the output caps?

    I was thinking of bypassing or changing the output caps of the Elite Pro soundcard. Anyone have any idea which of those they are? I was thinking they are the four closest to the dac. Elite pro has three output channels with separate dacs, that's why there are so many of them...

    Bad solder joint on a cap?

    Hi all! I've done some modding on my emu 0404 soundcard (changed opamp to ad8066, removed buffers + bypassed output caps). Now I've changed all of the relevant analogue caps to sanyo oscons. Same voltage and capacitance, except a couple of the new ones are 15 uf instead of 10...

    I was thinking about getting some OPA627's to replace the Rega's opamps. I've read a lot of modding threads, but I still have a couple of questions: I was thinking of buying them from digikey, but there are several opa627's. Which one of them should I get? Are there any instructions on...

    Emu 0404 quality?

    How important is to get some decent interconnects for the emu 0404:s 1/4" connectors? At the moment I have some cheapo 1/4" radioshack switcher -> rca -> rega ear -> senn hd580. It sounds a bit too tinny and harsh. If I use digital out to my cheapo Kennwood receiver it sounds very good. More...
