Blind Opamp Comparison

LHZ Preamps have transitioned from the vintage LF442CN opamps to new chips! The LF442CN has been out of production for many years, and Hazlabs have moved to modern surface-mount op-amps a few years ago, so it’s our time to turn the page as well! This video is a blind comparison between 3 opamps: the original LF442CN and two of the new opamps that have been selected as being sonically indistinguishable from the original.

Please cast your vote here, and we’ll follow up with results and more info about the opamps and testing process!

Shout out to TalkBass forum user VeryTallBassist for providing the bass clips! You rock, brother!
