I bought 2 Opa2228 for my Topping A50. The sound is now warm and very clean. I'm happy ^^
It all depends on implementation but overall OPA2228 is VERY good and cheap opamp IMHO. Especially when paired with very clean&detailed ultra-low-distortion chips in DAC-differential output like OPA1612AID / OPA1692IDR / AD8599.IF you enjoy the OPA2228 the Burson V6 is next level. Not that the 2228 is bad, it isn't. V6 is a step up in extension, control, texture, etc.
I`m settled with OPA1692IDR + OPA2228 - so open, airy, natural "smooth" timbre but with awesome transparency, layering, clarity and micro-details at same time.
