    Anyone fancy trying a bargain Sabre dac to keep themselves busy in the lockdown?

    Hi Lawrence,

    Which opamps have you tried/using more permanently?
    There are 4 op amps for IV conversion and 2 buffers. Do you use the same type for all?

    For those who consider buying it: Grab this one! I have a thread on DIY ESS9018 here. Mine comes out more expensive than asking price for this one...

    Thanks, I've just tried 2 OPA637s I had put away in the last 2 buffer positions which has improved the sound even more so I've just ordered a quad from RS - nearly 100 so better be worth it.

    The sale's on hold until they arrive and I burn them in a bit.

    (when I dig out the op amps again I'll look at what the other ones were)
