Opamps are an integral part of many types of audio equipment, including DACs, Pre-Amps, Studio Mixing Consoles to PC Sound Cards. They’re as crucial to audio gear as the audio signal conversion chips. Inferior Opamps distort audio signals, regardless of the analytical capability of the associated gear and quality Opamps significantly upgrade the sound. Understanding this Burson Audio presents the Supreme Sound Opamp V5i - an easy way to elevate your sound in your existing equipment. For nearly 20 years, Australia-based Burson Audio has been known for its R&D in audio Opamp technology, and the company’s V5i Opamps are among the most versatile and recognised in the world. You can use them to replace the standard IC Opamps in your equipment and hear the performance leap instantly.

The Burson Supreme Sound Opamp V5i is a result of the partnership between Burson Audio and a leading microchip foundry. The result of this partnership is an integrated version of Burson’s V5 FET circuitry. To overcome many limitations associated with ICs, the team have utilised high-quality discrete components. The result is the newly developed Burson V5i hybrid audio opamp, which is both partially IC and discrete. The Burson Supreme Sound Opamp V5i has a bandwidth of up to 50MHz. These high frequencies are not audible by the human ear, but they add to the listening experience a feeling of richness and restitution. In other words, you will not be able to hear all the micro details, but you will feel them. With the creation of the V5i, music will be more engaging and lifelike.

The Burson Supreme Sound Opamp V5i is designed and engineered in a manner that is easy to manage. The Burson Supreme Sound Opamp V5i offers a PDO similar in size to a classic PDO and also comes with DIP8 support. Thus, it will be easy to integrate into devices that have DIP8 support, and its size will not be a problem. Despite its contained size, the V5i offers exceptional performance. The V5i is fast, dynamic, and transparent. The music shines through a pitch-black background and a wide soundstage stage. The V5i pushes IC-based audio Opamp beyond its limitations, and it is truly worthy of the upgrade.

Similar to the size of a typical DIP8 Opamp, the V5i is the easiest plug-in upgrade for any audio project. The Burson Supreme Sound Opamp V5i is a fun upgrade with serious performance capabilities. You get the option to select two versions of the V5i Opamp best suited for your device. You can choose the V5i Dual Opamp or the V5i Single Opamp depending on your needs and compatibility with your equipment. The Burson Supreme Opamp is a drop-in replacement for the IC inside your devices. Pull out the existing IC opamp from its DIP socket, plug in the V5i Single or Dual as per the equipment, and you'll instantly hear more detail and impact, and a much larger soundstage.

Snake oil

Semiconductor is a huge investment, companies invest a lot on characterization of analog libraries, thermal characteristic and power.Not any small companies can make chips. I think these are COTS (commercial off the shelf) op-amp and Burson puts metal cap on them (subsequently putting a cap on the customer) and charge a premium.
You are better of buying from Texas Instruments / Analog Devices / Old Philips op-amp then buying these.
As far as sound. Gain has reduced quite significantly compared to JRC's, I feel its a step down compared to stock JRC chip. I will revert it back eventually

The Joy of Op-Amp Rolling On A Budget

Ordered this along with a Xduoo XD-05 Basic - wanted to taste op-amp rolling without investing a whole lot so went with the cheapest XD-05 variant and the budget but widely acclaimed V5i. And boy - they're a class above the JRC chips that come with the XD-05 Basic (and I believe with the Plus and BAL variants as well). My HD 650 now sounds more spacious compared to even the Zen Can (with XBass and 3D on) - till now my best combo. HPZ - please bring more such op-amps so that we can roll to our heart's content

We're really happy that you have such great thoughts about the product and thanks for the amazing review!

This Opened up XDuoo XD05 Balance dacamp

Great synergy with XDuoo XD05 balance dacamp.
Ety ER2XR is now full of details with bass becomes tighter and faster, mids which felt recessed now are more forward. A significant positive change in sound signature of er2xr.
Same with HD6XX, Bass is now fast without compromising on weight.
Overall a great purchase.

We're really happy that you have such great thoughts about the product and thanks for the amazing review!

I orders burson V5i D for my xduoo xd05 basic. I changed the default opamp with burson and the change was really noticeable. Soundstage was wide and there was more dynamics to the sounds. It sounded more fuller and a bit warm as compared to default opamp. I paired it with campfire Audio andromeda. The synergy is very pleasant as it’s a sharp iem and the source is warm. I really like burson. Thank you headphonezone for bringing this to India as I was trying to order it from eBay but couldn’t. Thank u so much for prompt delivery. U people r the best. 😊

This makes us really happy,Thank you for your genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and our company.

Good things come in small packages !!

These two little metallic octopuses have drastically changed my xDuoo XD-05BAL sound signature in comparison to my default op amps which came with xDuoo XD-05BAL. It's very easy changing the op amps on xDuoo XD-05BAL, 15 min job.
The sound stage is wider now while layering is more vivid it gives a nicely presented holographic 3d like quality to your music.
Treble is no more rolled off, mids are presented in nice forward manner but bass has decreased a little bit in quantity but quality of bass has improved.
The only caveat of Burson V5i dual op amp is slight increase in noise on poorly recorded songs like live performances and old songs.
Rest everything about them is super awesome they have changed the way my xDuoo XD-05BAL used to sound with my Sundara.
Definitely recommend them.
I'm so glad I'm the first one to grab them here on headphonezone.in just before they sold out.
Totally recommended to try these you won't regret the 6k you spent on them.
