ATTN: In the coming weeks there will be extended periods of downtime to upgrade our server. I will try to limit the extended downtime days to Saturdays when traffic is lowest, but overall service may be spotty.
It sounds good.
If there are any newer op amps that are a DIRECT replacement for the NE5532 and TL072 op amps in this that would give added sound quality without screwing something up.
I found one posting in a board where a guy claimed he changed the NE5532 to the OPA2134 and noticed a real difference in a DBX compressor.
Hi,I'm not sure what you mean by "older" opa op ampsBut, Its a safe bet the opa2228 and opa2107 are very very clean and I would be hard pressed to find anyone that sits down and really listens do them, with anything bad to say about them. That if course taking for granted a circuit they were designed in. Whether or not they will work in your circuit - you never know. Try it out, hey they are free - give them a listen. I think the "characteristic" burr-brown sound isn't so much with the 2228 and 2107but decide for yourself.
I've tried them in many applications, especially consoles and converters. The 2211A/1612 just sounds a lot clearer, detailed, punchy, more real to my ears (=more transparent) than for example the 2227, 275, 2134. You can get those more recent chips for free from TI, too. Use a Brown Dog adapter for DIP applications.
Ouch, that AD opamp is expensive! Went to search on eBay, but 7,50eur each, man that's hefty.
