    Nobsound, shit or great?

    As I acknowledge the NE5532 and NE5534 are a bit "warm-colored" or "musical" opamps. If you want the neutral and transparent sounding(lower distortion of the circuit), IMO the LME49720 would be a good choice to replace 5532 .They are also cheap,I bought 4 of them for only 12$.

    did you do the "Opamp Rolling" to change the stock 5532 and 5534 into something else?

    Nobsound, shit or great?

    nice! I'm very Intrigued, considering buying this BRZHiFi amp.It also would be a blind buying as you described. I'm just glad that someone here already owns this amp. Hopefully the review of it would come out soon

    Gustard X16 Balanced MQA DAC Review

    Yes I suppose so. External MQA DAC” = Disabled: SPDIF outputs an “MQA Core Decoded” stream in a 24/88.2 or 24/96 container. External MQA DAC = Enabled: SPDIF outputs a bit-perfect undecided MQA stream in a 24/44.1 or 24/48 container.

    Gustard X16 Balanced MQA DAC Review

    I think it would work this way.Node 2i outputs decoded MQA signals to X16 to do the rendering

    recommended amp/speakers for Bluesound node 2i

    The internal DAC of Bluesound Node 2i is decent.ofc unless if you want spend over 1000 eur for an external DAC,it would sound a bit better but not that much in your whole system.one advantage of node 2i is it's capable of decoding MQA format.It's very practical if you stream Tidal through the...

    recommended amp/speakers for Bluesound node 2i

    I would recommend picking speakers (passive) you like at first, and then you could upgrade your amp for your speakers specifically.

    ifi Zen DAC and Headphone Amp Review

    I think more power wouldn’t be needed.5V 1A should just work just fine, although iPower rated 5V 2.5 A.i have mine Zen DAC fed by a 5V 1.6A (peak 3A)linear PSU. There’s incremental difference I could hear but definitely not much.
