Yeah, stuff happens, especially if you have any congestion.

One interesting (if not particularly all that rigorous) you can try is taking a cable and hooking up the output of the card to the line input and playing / recording some song. So passing the audio through the output and input hardware. Do that with one set of op amps and then for the other set. Now you have two music files you can compare that have been run through those op amps (though admittedly also through A/D and D/A, the input side electronics, and more).

One of the screw holes on the EMI shield is starting to strip pretty badly, so I'm not able to do any more testing. Unfortunately, I didn't do the testing that I wanted to do. All I did was I replaced the JRCs with the 49720s and then went back and forth a few times to compare. What I really wanted to do was replace the 49710s with the 49720s as well (with the JRCs in their original sockets). Then, I wanted to try the JRCs in the sockets where the 49710s are with the 49720s in the JRC's sockets. I wanted to do as many different configurations as I could think of, but now I'd need a new EMI shield. Well, I could probably just insert the card without the EMI shield, but that would mean no expansion slot cover thing which would make me worried about having no support.

 

I just hope that I have the best configuration: 49710s in their original sockets, and 49720s in the JRC's sockets.
