Replacement for TA7136P
What would be a better sounding opamp to replace the TA7136P?
I can scan the schematic if needed, datasheet can't be found.
It's used as a preamp in a Sansui TU-9900 which I recently acquired.
I'd like to apply the few mods explained here: to see if this old beauty could reproduce a bit better.

Thanks :)

I did some scanning today.
Perhaps this can ring more bells.

i recently replaced the TA7136P in the phono section of a kenwood receiver. The difference is remarkable! wider sound stage and more detail.

I replaced two single op amps with 1 dual opamp. I had a OPA2604 on hand so I used that.

You could use:
NE 5532
OPA604 or OPA2604

Keep in mind that the TA7136P is in single in line package and the new parts come in DIP or even surface mount. So you will need to build a little pin-to-pin mapping or conversion.

TA7136P pins:
1. frequency comp
2. non-inverting input (+ input)
3. inverting input (- input)
4. V-
5. voltage comp
6. outout
7. V+

So for modern op amps you probably don't need to map pins 1 and 5.

Good luck

Thanks a lot paba, this was exactly the answer I needed.

A warm welcome to the forum while I'm at it. :)

I've received so much help and advice from various newsgroups and forums and I've learned so much just by reading along other peoples threads... whenever I get the chance to give back I do.

Doesn't happen too often but I contribute what I can.
Let us know how your final conversion sounds.

Thanks paba, nice attitude.
I'll report but be prepared to wait a bit :)

Hi Optik,

what info do you need exactly or what are you trying to do, maybe I can help in some way. I have some info on the TA7136AP from Toshiba.

What specs do you need?
