These are drop-in replacements for those cheap LN5534 op amps that are cluttering up so many a CDP!! They sound better to me than anything else I have tried, which includes the stock LN5534s, AD843s and OPA627s. I haven't compared them to the famous AD8610s, but those may be next on my list!!!
PM me if you're interested in buying these. They sell for $27 a piece thru LC Audio's importer, www.diycable.com but can be bought for only $27 for the pair thru www.upscaleaudio.com But I will sell them off for $22 plus $2 shipping. They are totally new and have never even been placed in my CDP as I bought an extra pair that I didn't need. They also include a protective plastic box.
See the photo here to get an idea of what they look like and how well they are built:

What is the minimum voltage for this amp? Is it better than AD845? Thanks.
I am currently running a set of AD843s in the CDP, and so far I prefer the 825 modules to them. I will try and do some more specific listening and A/B the two op amps and see what I think and let you know what I hear.
