not exactly the right place for this question.

but it would make it easier if you provided some more information.
Most helpful would be filling out your system specs.

you asked your question already...

You were asked to fill out your rig specs and give more information.

You failed to comply. Please fill out your rig specs in the user cp and provide more information on your problem.

Finally, you can use whatever op-amp you want to use as long as you check the specs and pinout are a suitable match. Good luck.

Hi, I'm new here, can't believe I read through all 88 pages of this but I actually did... had to take a nap break in the middle but I got it done when I should be studying for my exam on Tuesday lol.

Have a few questions though.

You said that you no longer recommend this mod due to possible sound card damage, the release of the Auzen, and cost/benefit, bad PCB construction on Creative Lab's side, etc.

-If I were to get my hands on a X-Fi Elite Pro for about $70, would it still be a feasible decision (price-wise of the $70 on top of the different capacitors etc.) to mod it to make it comparable or better than an Auzentech Prelude? Apparently the X-Fi Elite uses some better components already (though some still can be replaced) as well as a better PCB.

Parts to get:
5x LM4562MA-ND (~$11.00)
1x Blackgate 1000uF 16v 16x25 STD Series (~$5 not including shipping)

Now here's where I'm a bit confused. In the first page post they recommend:

SB0550: (Elite, Pro)
a) coupling caps, (Front: C45, C58, C35, C49)
b) C104, C133 +/-12vdc supply to opamps: Panasonic FM or FC, 330uf @ 16 or 25vdc
c) C55 +5vdc Va supply to DACs: Panasonic FM or FC, 68uf @ 16 or 25vdc
d) C6 +5vdc Va to AK5394 ADC: Kemet 22uf TANT @ 25vdc

A) What kind of coupling caps would you recommend? If you could give as much information like brand, uF, voltage, series, etc. that would be nice so I could pin-point the exact cap on Digi-Key. (Hopefully ones that Digi-Key sells as well so I can order from as few vendors as possible to save on shipping costs)

B & C) Which would you recommend? FM or FC and 16 or 25vdc? The post doesn't really explain the differences between choosing between those.

D) I couldn't locate the specific Kemet Tantalum capacitor on Digi-Key either. Any idea on this?

Sorry for the overly long post. Thanks for any help you can provide. I'm getting my Klipsch Promedia 5.1 Ultra's in the mail next week and would like to order a sound card to replace my SB Live! Value as soon as possible.

On the odd chance that you might happen to have all these different pieces lyin around without any use that you'd be willing to sell as a sort of mod kit that would be even nicer.

Oh and one last thing, I guess capacitor size matters too so it looks nice and neat after it's all done sort of like how it did before the mods were done. I'm sure that other guys mod works great but those capacitors are all over, looks like some frankenstein stuff goin on.

This is awesome! +1 for you and also, I do not have the balls to do attempt any of this since I did the pencil mod to my GPU... which overloaded my PSU and fried it (which took my M/B and proc).

lolwut?

A pencil mod to the GPU fried your corsair 650w PSU? If that's true, yeah i'd probably stay away from modding my sound card too lol.
