In order to demonstrate the difference in volume, clarity and punch that our exclusive upgradable Operational Amplifier delivers, we went to a professional recording studio and made comparison recordings.
Every effort was made to accurately replicate the end user experience when listening to music or playing a video game.

Here is a side by side example comparing the waveforms of a track by Akiko Sunwani. The lower wave form represents the recording made using an Operational Amplifier, the upper waveform using a traditional motherboard audio configuration. As you can see, there is a very tangible difference, with the OP Amp offering a much louder, clearer listening experience, with greater definition between lows and high throughout the track..
