Default Need some oppinions in opamps

Hey everyone. I hope you guys can help me with something. I would like to change the opamps on my Creative Audigy SE soundcard and on my Yamaha RX-V395RDS A/V receiver and i need some help on some cost effective high fidelity opamps (i am on a very tight budget). I have read some info about the LM4562NA and they look good, but i dont want to spend 10$+shipping for an opamp (that is how much it costs in my country). My question is are there any good audio grade opamps for less or there is no such thing as a high quality cost effective opamp?

I like the JRC 5534. They have a very realistic "analog" sound. I have tried the NA 5534 an, and many others, (but not the LM4562) but the JRC`s are the best I`ve tried. They fit easy in most patterns.

Unfortunately the JRC5534 is only a single opamp and the 4558 and 4556 on my soundcard are dual opamps. If they would be trough hole on the soundcard it would not be a problem as they are adaptors for single opamps. Any more suggestions?

I have neve heard of Digikey before. It looks like a huge supplier, I don`t know about shipping costs because it looks that they are from the US, whatever it may be i am sure that it would not be cheap to Romania

One of them is for the line-in, the other 4556s are for the rear, center and subwoofer channels. So you think it would make some difference if I change them with 5532s ? My other reason for the upgrade is because I think the left channel on the on the 4558 is fried. It makes crackling noise when I connect it to the amp and distorts horribly when i connect headphones, it distorts so bad that I can`t even understand the music.
