    IME, only poor SS preamps sound grainy. The good ones don't, *but*, to my ears, are a little musically bland/matter-of-fact, compared with the best...

    Yes, that's pretty sound advice. A lot of potentially good systems are hampered by a poorly matched and/or designed preamp. However (and I know...

    Hi Charles,

    I've just converted my DIY 3-way D'Appolito speaker (high-end SEAS chassis) to an active setup, based on the Najda boxed DSP and a Rotel RMB-1506 6-channel amp.
    As I wasn't satisfied at all with the sound of this setup, I've started to experiment with different opamps in the DSP.

    I've just stumbled across your post, in which you are offering to send out the V5 and/or V5i opamps.
    I'm very interested in creating a win-win situation for both of us: Would be great to test the new Burson opamps and share my documented experience with the forum and my network of audio DIY people in Germany.
    I would need 6 V5 and/or V5i (based on your recommendation) to upgrade the Najda DSP.

    Opamps I've tested so far:
    LM833 (original Najda ingredient)
    LM4562
    AD8066 -> (currently waiting for the opamp delivery) to be checked

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Cheers,
    Hardy
