    Which omamp

    Hi there.. I have this sound card in my computer. Last week I bought ONKYO receiver and I connected it with prodigy card with an optical cable. I still have stock Opamps. Could you tell which opamps should I change to obtain a better sound? Or it doesn’t matter while it's connected via optical cable? Thanks for your advice.

    Opamps are only used when you connect the analog outputs. Optical out bypasses the digital to analog convertion. In your case that you use optical connection your receiver makes all the ''job''. Try out what is best for you by testing either analog and optical outs but in both cases make sure that you use good cables.

    Thanks a lot. I thought it was like that.

    though you have more options than only 16v caps since only -5v/+5v go thru the stock 2200uf 16v caps

    you can use 10v and certainly 6.3v caps

    i had 2 x 2200uf 6.3v blackgate nx and hifi sounded like never before

    also look for the nichicon gold audio caps which are supposed to be their best

    I have one of these cards and absolutely love it. Very nice cards for hifi audio and the opamp upgrade does make a big difference. I upgraded mine to the LM4562NA chips with terrific results. Unfortunately my time is done with the card and I'm selling it shortly. To those who have it, enjoy it!

    For those who still use this card: There is a new Vista/Win7 Driver released for both
    32Bit and 64 Bit version of those operating systems. They are stable and sounding
    excellent. In fact the Stereosound was never better than with this drivers.
    I personaly use the Prodigy Hifi with Sennheiser HD595 headphones now under
    Win7 64Bit and im enthused.

    Link to the new V1.07 drivers:

    Does anyone uses this card and got everything working good?

    In XP I have a problem with master volume control - 0% is not really 0% and 100% is not really 100% ( Drivers Version 1.02 )
    In Win 7 it's worse - I've messed with the drivers all day - 1.02 , 0.978 , 1.07 , 1.08

    1.07 , 1.08 - Problem with using 8 channels , Problems with volume control
    1.02 - Problem all by it self :\
    0.978 - 8 Channels working but no ASIO support?

    What the hell is the matter with their drivers? Is it so hard to make a good and stable driver?
    HeadUnit : Car-Pc | Processor : JBL MS-8 | Front Stage : Woofer - Mpyre 65M , Mid - Dayton RS100-4 , Tweeter - Tang-Band Ceramic 25-1719S | Subwoofer : Hertz HX250D | Amps : A/D/S PQ10 , Hifonics Olympus XI , SPL AB03445 | Wiring : Sommer , Neutrik

    For the Win7 Volume prob: you must decide what mastervolume u use and not
    both. I use that provided with the audiotrak mixer in the tray and have no
    probs.
    Personaly i think the Win7 driver 1.07 and 1.08 are still Betas and only made
    to not totally annoy the (few) remaining users. Its realy good for 2 channel but
    thats it i guess. I think most users of this card have long changed to another
    product thanks to the minimal support this card gets.

    The connecter is an "High Density 15 Pin" connector or "DB15HD, High Density.
