Last night I had some fun, changed the op amps on my moderately expensive sound card, the Asus Xonar Essence STX, from the stock JRC2114D to the more advanced LME49720HA. I chose the TO-99 package for the LME49720 because I understand there's a definite improvement over the board's form factor of DIP8.

It took me a bit to get them to fit, the trouble is that trying to bend the pins in a row is pretty hard because they have different angles to the chip so they tend to spin or bend whenever you push on them. I used a spare DIP8 header I had lying around to give them the rough shape I wanted then fit them securely onto the board. I'd like to get a TO-99 to DIP8 converter but until then this solution is okay.

One problem I had however was that the new parts are way too tall for the EMI shield so I had to cut down the legs a bit. Surprisingly though they were really tough and my initial idea of just flattening them and then using my heavy duty wire cutter did nothing more than bend the ends... So I took to cutting each pin which was tricky because they were made from a very strong metal and I had to cut them at an angle which eventually meant I partially clipped a pin too short when I was cutting the one next to it. All in all I did still leave them way too tall but I didn't want to risk making it to short to work with. And the EMI shield still sort of fits so we're okay. One thing I just realized however is that I didn't shield the can from the EMI shield (which is metal) but I don't think the can itself is connected to the circuit. Or else I'd have a nice huge spark :D

All in all that was loads of fun and the sound is definitely improved, with much much clearer voice and instruments and a wider soundstage, the only loss to the stock amps being the loss of some boomy bass which was expected.


* wider soundstage
* clearer voices and instruments
* nicer midtones and highs
* weaker bass (which is a bit of an issue since my cans are closed so they don't have much bass anyway), especially the boomy kind, but it's not a problem.
* even Avril Lavigne sounds nicer who, let's be honest, has the musical talents of a raped cat.

Seeking Glass Explorers:

Last year we showed Glass to the world for the first time - we jumped out of airships, crashed New York Fashion Week and even took a ride on the subway. It’s been an exhilarating journey so far and there’s a lot more to come, but we can’t go it alone. We’re developing new technology that is designed to be unobtrusive and liberating, and so far we’ve only scratched the surface of the true potential of Glass.

Now we want you to get involved and that’s why today we’re expanding our Glass Explorer Program. We’re looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass. Glass is still in the early stages, so we expect there will be some twists and turns along the way. While we can’t promise everything will be perfect, we can promise it will be exciting. 

We’d love to make everyone a Glass Explorer, but we’re starting a bit smaller. So, if you want to be one of the first Explorers, go to to find out how.
