    Which chip is better for preamp Ad8512, opa2134, or ne5532?
    Hi guys, i am working on a preamp project,
    Just wanna know which ic is better when it comes to audio/sound performance?
    Is there any superiority in terms of producing bass sounds?
    Ad8512, opa2134, or ne5532?
    They all have the same pin config.
    Thank you so much masters....

    What do you mean by "superiority in term of producing bass sounds"? All of these op-amps will perform equally well at low audio frequencies.

    No one can give you a definitive answer regarding the subjective nature of perceived audio performance. Furthermore, the implementation is at least as important as the device so this is rather a meaningless question. Some people love the old NE5532 and others prefer the newer devices. Buy one of each and choose the one you prefer.
