AD8599 for front channel is a bit more suitable than LM4562
and AD8066 is very suitable for bass.

I need to order a new op amp for my new stereo amp anyways, I was stupid and broke a leg off one this morning when I was taking it out of the socket...
just get an auzen. stock it sounds about the same as a modded xtrememusic and you don't have the hassle of modding it.


oh, and btw... I still have lots of lm op-amps left for the x-fi mod

I might take you up on that.

The XtremeMusic is $60, and the Auzen is, well, almost triple that. I don't have that much money left over.

Did Azun ever get the Vista driver situation worked out? I never heard an update on that issue.

FYI...The Creative drivers from Nov. 5th are excellent.

I am planning on running LM4562'a all the way around.

Why do you think the AD8599 would be better for the front channel? Higher current?

I've read elsewhere (headfi, etc.) that even though the 8599 supplies a bit more current when using unamped cans ... that the LM4562 still has better musicality and soundstage ...

Have you listened to both?

I'm not going to be modding the X-fi for at least another month so I've got time to change things around ...

LM4562 is a little bit too upfront/aggresive for me, so i think they're better at other channel.
and if those 2 are still too aggresive, you might want to use AD8066 for front channel, some of my customers like it that way.

if you like jazz music so much, AD825 even better but i dunno if it suit x-fi spec, i use AD825(DIP) on other soundcard like prodigy.

well if you figure out the cost for the modded xtreme music:
$70 card
$75 parts for the complete mod
_____
$145 if you do it yourself, probably over $200 if you pay someone to do it for you.

The Auzen is $200 sounds as good as the modded xtrememusic, costs less and has a warranty. To me this is an easy decision.

Can you add me to the headphone club?

Headphones I own...

Music: Sony MDR-V6 Monitors, Shure E4c-n earbuds, Sennheiser HD555

Gaming: SteelSound 5H v2, Barracuda HP-1
post #1420 of 38150
Just recieved Sennhesier HD280Pro's. They are really good but they are too tight around my head. Any advice on how to safely stretch them. I leave them clasped around a 12cm speaker when not using them but they are still too tight. Will this problem be fixed over time?

Thanks.
