Ola Pipomantis,

Don't give up so easily! So you just joined us here- welcome. You see, we all agree: install dip sockets and you can try all the opamps mentioned for a very small budget and let your ears in the context of your system decide. Just take your time assessing each one.

Man, you already replaced the electrolytics in there with good audio grade ones. No reason to stop. (you did that didn't you? I can't believe Sony would use nice electrolytics.)

Next up on my list would be to buy a schematic for it and figure out which resistors are really critical and replace them with high quality metal film types.
