Default discrete opamp class A

I'd like to replace the chips in my cd player.
Now there are three ne5534 I would like too replaced them with discrete opamp working in class A.
Something like burson discrit opamps.
If anyone has some suggestion?

Yeah, my suggestion is check out Samuel Groner's extensive measurements on opamps first. Burson discrete doesn't fare very well at all and he says it looks identical to Audio-gd OPA-Earth which is much cheaper.

there are a number of discrete opamps in this Forum.
I think Peranders has a board for one as well.
Mox thread had one but it required two pcbs for a dual.
Maybe Juma has one.
Pass shows some.

Search, you should get quite a few hits.

All stages of Op-Amp runs in general in pure class A, except such versions suited for power amplifier applications like TDA2030 etc. By such versions the last stage (power buffer) runs with only 10-100mA idle current.
Here several URLs about OP-AMPs include several about discrete versions

Try this from Ray (of the HUGE CD63/67 mod thread) :-

Discrete output stage


PCB is available, too.

where did you get this from?
Or did you invent that hypothesis yourself?

Three 5534's is an odd (as in not even) number ? so they can not be just audio left and right channels. Are you sure they are all 5534 ?

Do you know what they all do before replacing them.

As to replacing 5534's in the audio path such as buffers/filters or I/V conversion I would recommend the OPA604 from my own experience providing they are suitable.

Try the OPA2604 for 5532's. Should be no problems as a direct swap.
