fragletrollet said:What are the difference between the 500-series 1176`s and the "standard" ones (if comparing the same revisions)? I`m guessing that the 500-series ones might have a little less headroom due to the lower power used? Anything else?
Nope, gain is the same (45-50 dB depending on rev). The rails are the exact same (+30V and a - bias rail), it's explained on the MNATS site. Keep in mind +16 and -16 is still a 32V swing.
500 series have a slightly higher noise floor but we've only noticed it in measurement. 500 series does add the 2:1, true bypass and more responsive metering.
