    Just to be clear the stock top wont fit but I know you are planning to make some custom setups.  Ask for a discount he will give you one.

    The Fairchild NE5532N is quite nice too.

    I took a gamble and ordered one a few weeks back since it was in the Ihifi 812V2.
    I had read it might get a little screwy in the wrong application, so very good to see it is stable and not showing any issues so far.
    Thanks for posting about this.
    Impressive with the 340. ( you have a typo for people who might be curious about looking that one up = AKG ) [​IMG]
    Let us know if you notice any serious drop in battery life.

    It's AKG of course, only the auto correction of my tablet changed K to M. I must have posted in car forums too often. :wink:

    Talking about power draw, in my modded Walnut (3000u power cap and 6x 220u caps) it takes a whopping 3 sec for the poor battery to charge up all those caps before I get sound in my phones. So obviously no more power on pop lol and volume pot is smooth and linear all the way to full turn

    I'll check out its battery performance next week

    I want to comment on LME49720NA, after listening to it for a few days I prefer it to stock 5532. Some people may find lme to have less bass and mainly not as in your face mids, that doesn't bother me, coz I'm listening mainly on RE400 which is I would say little mid-centric with well extended bass. I find bass on the lme to be accurate and heard when you need them. AND the highs and the soundstage is much better and open on lme :)
    Only downside being the "bubbling" background noise, which can be heard in quiet parts of music. This noise may be reduced when I change power cap, am I right?

    I wish I could AB opamps with another nut like some of you guys :)
    Hope my short impressions can help someone.

    That place uses the 25v 1000uF pic for literally all Ruby ZL's they sell, so i'm gonna guess thy're just lazy about the stock pics.

    How much more clearance would the SS3602 need to fit?
  12. groucho69
    Can't wait for mine to arrive.

    The LME49720 is actually rather nice, wide stage, good clarity and great dynamic. Did not experience bobbing here.

    You may also want to try the LME49990. Also a very nice one.

    But for ym setup I still prefer the Analog Devices line - AD825 (+++), AD8066 (++), AD8620 (++) - best textured, best layered sound and most detailed. A tad warmer than the LMEs but without the laid-back of most of the OPAs.

    It's stupid how good the $25 walnut + $5 JRC4558D opamp + $5 monk+ sounds. Crazy stupid. Awwsome!

    ^ Agree, although it's even more impressive than you say as the JRC4558D is actually a 70 cent opamp [​IMG]
