Incredible X-Fi mod *WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY*, 56K WARNING - Page 83

post #821 of 979
I'm having trouble finding the LM4562, everyone seems to be out of stock.

Are there any other good OPAMPs to use? Or at least, does anyone know the input voltage so I know what the choices are?

I have a X-Fi Platinum with the I/O bay installed in my PC. I just set it up last night, and listened music from the headphone output on the panel. The sound is murdy. Yes, I amplified the headphone output with a headphone amplfier to drive my AKG K501. I feel it is worse than using the XMod.
I am excited to find this thread. I don't care much on the sound quality of the analog line-out, since I will use digital out to my receiver for playing music with speakers.
Could you guys suggest how I can upgrade the headphone output module of this X-Fi Platinum?

thanks a lot.

just use the line out on the card itself

Welcome to OCN. I agree with what soloz2 said, just use the line out on the sound card itself. That I/O panel isn't the best piece of hardware in the world.

power cap? I think stock is only 220uf if I remember correct. So you should be fine. The initial few suggested 2200uf, but that's just too big and actually messed up some peoples cards as there was such a huge difference. I've always recommended 1000uf.
