I have finally completed my project.
The Burson v5 discrete op-amp all do a wonderful job. Even when i listen for 2 days not fully burned-in yet.
Replaced op-amp in my M-stage headphone amp.
The op-amps were the last of several sections that were upgraded in a Adcom GDA-600 DAC from a thread in DIY online. Listening was done after each section , power supply upgrade , caps around op-amps, the op-amp change and lastly the reserve caps at pin 4 to 8, each with SS-Audio discrete op-amp making the most positive improvement in sound, the sound is more open with a large soundstage , best and my peeve with digital is piano, the higher octave and flats are more real, to life I like that a lot.
I received the SS-Audio V5i op-amps. Replaced the cheap IC holders with machine tool sockets used in the preamp.
This made for a much nicer and more secure installion of the V5i, they fit great.
After listening for about a week, I have noticed a much improved sound stage.
But the first thing I noticed was very much improved BASS response which had always been lacking in my system, not anymore. The bass is tighter, more pronounced and punchy; just the way I like it. The range and detail in the music is just fantastic.
I hear more of the music, sounds and detail I couldnt hear before.
This is a great product and I can highly recommend them. This was a lot of work, but well worth it.
I decided to upgrade the Op-amps in my Xonar Essence STX II, I bought 3 Dual Burson V5 discrete OP AMP’s and the sound quality is above anything I have heard from this card yet. My speaker system is a Klipsch Promedia 2.1, and my two headsets are the Astro A40 and the V-Moda M100’s.
Introducing the geek zone. The sound is absolutely sublime. They don’t look too bad either 😉
