Op-Amp Diskurs: AD797A – AD797B / OPA627AU + other.. / DIY-Audio
after i´ve finally got the Green ES9038Q2M (see post before) i can continue to “develop/build” the planned DIY-DAC (according to the main topic of this site->”Audio-introduction”->”..all in favor (in the way) of building „our“ own DIY-DAC !!” 😉 ..)
and as i said, i´ve got the feel that the AD797ANZ (i had no other AD797 here) is absolutely the best choice on the “Blue” ES9038Q2M (and from the Op-Amps i´ve got here so far of course) (LME47910,-20,OPA2134,Muses8920, etc..), on the Green they “sounded” for me a little bit too thin(+harsh)..
guess (it is) because of the different pcb-layouts, other voltage regulators, capacitors and so on; wonderful thread concerning this as posted million times before->https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/digital-line-level/314935-es9038q2m-board-301.html
i´ve just ordered (as planned) some OPA627AU (they should be a little bit “warmer”, but also with the wide soundstage + 3D/spacious/”airy” attitude) and hope they will fit my personal taste a little bit more (and this is exactly what it is in the high hifi-gear-equipment->from a certain level on its always/depends on your personal taste + affectations/preferences)..
so, by that, as some user said, the the AD797B is the optimimum choice for hi-fi by the AD797s i´ve found by chance a .pdf (datasheet) from original Analog-Devices->Link..
and indeed, the frame-specifications are almost the same but there are some differences..(picture is only a small excerpt)
some user said (also here in the forum->http://essabre-90xx-rpi.sfb2.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=76:
“..Category 5 – complete sound traveling in the clean air”
2x AD797BRZ – this is the op-amp truly deserving the name of the Analog Device. This one is a smoother and fuller sounding version of the AD797. Switching from the ANZ to the BRZ series is like going vinyl instead of digital. Everything is smooth to the moment your music craves for the harsh texture like aggressive violin passages, distorted guitars, or stronger double bass phrases. The readability of the furthest plans is great, without going into image sharpening effect which makes you see the details more but lose the feeling of perspective at the same time. Roughly, it’s like the AD79ANZ with all advantages of the OPA627BP added. The soundstage is nowhere limited and the sound image of whatever possible shape. This is a reference integrated op-amp for me so let me know as soon as you find better, and I will verify it.”
i will test it then, have to buy this AD797BRZ.. 😉 ..
another thing is that i now continue to find a case, look for the right torodial transformer (+15V-0–15V) and so on; Audiophonics has some there->https://www.audiophonics.fr/en/search?search_query=transformer+15v
by that, i´ve found some old “Harman Kardon HD710” (for maybe using some parts/case of it) and interesting was also the “normal” CD-Player LCD-displays which had “millions” of different display-elements (maybe to get some other ideas for “layouting” your own display)..
