All audio equipment needs opamps—from DACs to preamps, from studio mixing consoles to PC sound cards to car amps. They’re as important to audio gear as the lens is to a movie projector. Inferior opamps distort audio signals, regardless of the analytical capability of the associated gear. On the other hand, picking up some great opamps—like these from Burson Audio—is one of the most affordable ways to significantly upgrade your sound. For nearly 20 years, Australia-based Burson has been known for its R&D in audio opamp technology, and the company’s V5i opamps are among the most versatile and recognized in the world. You can find praise for the V5i series on virtually any audio forum and in virtually any language. Use them to replace the standard IC opamps in your equipment and hear the performance leap that DIYers everywhere are raving about.
Note: At checkout, choose the V5i-Dual single unit (base price), the V5i-Single matched pair (+ $15), or the V5i-Dual matched pair (+ $20). This drop requires user installation. Members assume responsibility for any damaged gear as a result of making the installation.
First, make sure you have the right solid-state opamp:
Then, plug/solder it in the right direction. Align the half-moon marking on the PCB or IC socket to the half-moon cutout on the V5i.
