burr brown w/ asymmetrical clipping for me! love it!
I used the LM1458 for a long time, did not think it could be improved on, then I read your post, bought a TL072ACN, THAT is now MY sound!! Great chip, nice 'full' sound, enhances the bass but does not (seem) to affect the treble. Thanks for the tip.
Is there anywhere I could buy a package of these chips to try out in my Timmy?
So would you say it was thicker than the LM1458?
I have two Timmys and I'm interested to set one up to be as thick as I can get it as I contrast to my normal LM1458/Asymmetrical set-up.
I've seen them on eBay packaged together. It would probably be cheaper just ordering a bunch from Small Bear Electronics or Mouser.
Cool, thanks for the info.
I did this with my Timmy btw. I ordered a bunch from Small Bear, along with some knobs and other stuff, and they were really cheap. I ended up sticking with the stock chip that Paul ships with.... but it was fun. Make sure you're installing them correctly. There is a bump or a dot marked on one side of each chip showing which direction it should be facing.
So has anyone got really serious & tried the parallel chip stacking a la Dave Barber?
Could be interesting...
I've never seen that!
So do the letters at the end signify an audiable difference?
I'm loving the LM1458 now.
Sorry for bumping this, but it is a great thread. I've tinkered with the opamps in my Tim and Timmy for years, but I've never tried some of the opamps listed in this thread.
I ended up with the JRC4559 in my Timmy and JRC4558 in my Tim.
So I just checked, I have tried a TL072CP. I also tried some BB OPA2134PA op amps. I also have tried LME 4960NA's.
Now I need to get some TL072ACN and LM1458's
