Help on improved analogue stage
as mentioned in a previous post I am looking to upgrade my CD Player.
One of the areas of intervention is the I/V and buffer / filter stage depicted in the schematics attached.
What is sure so far is that R4-R6 and R9 will be upgraded with Riken resistors, C6 subsituted by a Black Gate N type, IC1 will be substituted by 2 OPA627BP on a Browndog adaptor, IC2 the same or OPA2134 (need to check both).
The follwong components being left and:
1) I have problem sourcing capacitors in so small values
2) I am not sure on the type of resistor I should use in the feedback networks of the ICs.
1) I wanted to source som RelCap TEs but I have problems getting those, so I am think about alternatives. The only ones I found so far are
- 4,7nF Wima FKP2
- All other values and 4,7nF I can only find Silver-Micas or Styroflex.
- Currently some non defined yellow caps are in, look like small MKTs
Which ones can be recommended in which position?
2) I have some spare Rikens left but I am not sure whether they would suit the application.
I have a hard time finding Caddock MK132 or Vishay Dale CMF55 in 620Ohms.
Can I leave the original metallic ones in place or do you recommend the Rikens or or or...
Your help is very much appreciated.

in my Bitstreamed player from Meridian I have the same output concept. The same topology is used for very high grade (digital) meters, the aim being the offer of a completely symetric & balanced load to both outputs, with an extreme PSRR. However, the setting is very prone to 3rd harmonics and needs carefull adjustment!
But, do we need this complexity in audio?
A schema has been placed on the DIYaudio that uses a Nelson Pass balanced concept that only at the output links the two outputs (C43) for some filtering. The advantage: no feedback, no complex phase shifts. No slew rate limitations as the current pump does it's work...
This looks a good alternative to your setting, is simpler too to build.
Comment on the value of the summing resistor: Given the fact that it is running into 1.500 ohms it has been designed for a +/- 2 mA current source. I am not sure if this is the same as you have (because you have a 620 feedback resistor).
