I'll order another TA2020A+ from ebay soon.
I'll order some Nichicon caps as well and I gotta do some research on what inductors I need and some parts for the pop surpression.
For the caps I'll probably get FW series 10000uF 16V to replace the biggest cap and for the other smaller caps I'll get some FG series (idk what sizes yet)
Gotta go buy a new soldering station as well..
Reason for getting another Lepai is that if I manage to break it while modding then I'll still have my original one
If I don't break it and it actually works then I can do some proper comparisons and then after that I can mod the other one and either sell it for profit or something.
I'm also debating about a new sound card or dac/headphone amp.
I have to options in my mind.
Xonar Essence STX (~175€ here in Finland) or Audinst HUD-MX1 (~182€ including VAT from South Korea)
With the Audinst I'll have the option to use it as a headphone amp and when I want to listen to my speakers I can just flip a switch and the signal goes to RCA out and into my Lepai.
Of course the STX also has headphone amp but I'm planning on getting proper cans which aren't that easy to drive so the Audinst would be better. + it's portable ish so yeah.
Also Head-Fi'ers seem to like it.
