For the highest ratio of quality to cost -- NE5532 and NE5534 -- these workhorses can really perform
I second to that.......

though newer and maybe faster opamps are available these days...............

according to my ears regardless of my pocket

NE's are still best speacially in the input side........seconded by TL072's or 74's......

I just don't understand actually why there not much threads

concerning pre-amps utilising op amps and tone controls

discrete opamps I know are most on threads..

Maybe because there are much more diy in making diskrete opamps than just plug a DIP 8 in a socket

Discrete opamps are nice, however sometimes it easier just to use a DIP opamp

No I'm not using tone controls, and my thread here was just to hear what other people uses as low budget opamp

I've tried OPA2134's some BURR BROWN op's but

still I would prefer NE5532's and in my

active filter projects: 24db state variable linkwitz riley 3way crossover

network, I would always prefer the TLO's........

I have earlier been for my opinion, that I think some of the expencive opamps like OPA627 sounds to "sterile"

Ok guys... Keep on

aaaaaaaahhhhhhh yes,

I do now remember the LYNX.

I've tried every single opamp I had in my drawer from

OPA134PA, OPA627, OPA604,

until I've arrived with LF356 which behaved and sounds that well .......
