    You'll need something like this:

    Solder the op-amp into that adapter, then the adapter just pops into the socket like the original op-amp.
    That link is from earlier in this thread - the name of the adapter on that page should result in the right component if you need to search on other sites.

    anyone try this with the bluetooth adapter?

    I have the Bluetooth adapter, and it's great. Really good sound, and you can move the source wherever you want to avoid the RF noise. It's a must-have if you have the XD-05, IMHO.

    Well....got my 2209 and 1652 delivered today, along with a bunch of adapters, only to discover that the opamps are TINY and not immediately compatible with the adapters!!
    A bit of searching and comparing to images in this thread leads me to believe I need a SOP-8/DIP-8 adapter on which to mount the chips (think that's a job for my wife and even then I suspect the work might be too small)
    @imran27 - is there a standard convention for the routing of legs to pins in these adapters or do I need to find something super specific? I have found this:
    but not 100% sure it is compatible. And if it is, will it matter which orientation the chip follows?

    Blundered in thinking "Reckon I can do this" and now thinking I might have to just leave it alone! Not much of an investment, so no tears if I can't push forwards....

    Are the opamps SOIC or VSSOP?

    There are DIP-8 adapter boards which can do SOIC-8 on one side and VSSOP-8 on the other side.

    If the opamps are VSSOP, the adapter boards you linked will still be bigger.

    Also, soldering VSSOP is a little tricky but still doable, just make sure you use right amount of flux and the right tip for the job.

    Hi Imran,

    Working with these:

    I'll need to pick up a smaller tip for the soldering iron and it's still going to be a challenge, even for my very capable missus!!
    Thanks for your help and your advice!

    I had this same issue when installing some off drivers a while back.

    Completely uninstall the driver and all apps installed with the original driver installation and re-download the latest version from the website. They have updated the drivers and they work better now.


    Download the one labeled XDUOO USB DRIVER(For XD-05,POKE,TA-10 ).
    You will need to extract it and install the compatible driver for your OS.

    After that, should no longer click.

    As far as I know, there is no way to fix this. Since I regularly use mine on PC, I "solved" this by downloading white noise and putting it on a loop and turning it down to where I can barely hear it in vlc. While this is not the most ideal solution, it does keep it from powering off when I am sitting there for 20 minutes with no noise.

    Wait, it turns off the amp section or just the digital portion when not used for 20 minutes? I thought it could only turn off with the knob? I use it on the Coaxial setting and am wondering if it does not play sound will it turn it self off or something?
  14. Tutakahaman
    Oh shoot I thought he was talking about the bluetooth adapter.
  15. rvcjew
    Oh maybe they are, I use the BT adapter for the coax. I thought maybe I could listen while sleeping and it would shut it self off later lol, but the amp portion is what you would want to do that not necessarily the BT part.
