yeah I'll be using the analogue outs. :)

 

then i would strongly recommend the opa627's for the stereo front sound, and once you recover from the awe of hearing them, you can figure what else gets plugged where

 

you might find benefit in getting a pulling tool usually employed for bios chips, because the opamps really cling like shit to a blanket in their sockets, and the legs bend very easily (although the dual chip mounts are much sturdier)

Now why did I get the image of three people in surgeon's type outfits gathered around an open computer... one fellow monitoring a UPS, another peering into the machine, then asking for a third to hand him the chip extractor..? ;-)

ll likely be replaced with Laphroaig Quarter Cask (which has been staring at me for a while).

Let us know how the quarter cask goes, I've been looking at getting it but don't really want to also buy the 'modern' Laphroaig to compare it to <.>

Real men build the op-amp from scratch, using nothing but a paper-clip, some germanium, and good ol' male ingenuity!

fish and computers don't mix

 

Ever seen a fish try to pass a DIP8 package through its digestive system? Can't imagine it being very comfortable for the fish.

So that's what it's used for.

 

I've had that thing in a tool case since I went to TAFE (6 years onwards) and had NFI what it was!

I'd pay it for motherfucking Golden Zelda. And I don't even have the console to play it on. My NES suddenly started displaying green and green only one day. I think it got binned. I would have been 8 or 10.
