Brief Introduction:

Altec Lansing's early technological developments in acoustical and electronic components have earned a place of prominence in sound reproduction few companies can match. The predominance of Altec's name over the years in sports stadiums, arenas, theatres, airports, auditoriums, churches, amusement parks and more recently on desktops within homes and at the workplace attest to this fact.

Quoted: <IMO, JRC4558 can be replaced, to NE5532 if you want go for budget one. That cheapo op-amp are some better than JRC4558, for better ones try go for LME49720 or LME49860 depends on the power supply voltage. Other Burr Brown op-amp such as OPA2604 or OPA2134 can try out also but i personally not like it for swapping purpose, coz it does not sound like the way it like.>

Thanks for your suggestions! What do you think of S5532(1986/87/89), OP275 and AD827SQ/883B(quite expensive...)? Between S5532 and OP275, which one is better? One more thing, ACS 45.1 runs at a single 12V power supply(correct?).

huhuhu =) i votes 4558
waste money and time on opamp, when the source is going to be from 'somewhere' and the stock speakers cannot go 'there'
too much limitations on this set.
for fun's sake, just hit 'whatever' comes first =)

yeah single, and the powerbrick sucks brix

The limitation of the source? Is it the TDA7370B, or from the sound card, the computer? So, for fun purpose as well as improvement, what else cound be done on it at this moment?

Yes, S5532 is NE5532. It has a big "S" before the printed model number, and they were manufactured in the older days, someone said those older-manufactured stocks is good at sound. By the way, I have no idea of it.

Not sure about that, but most use NE5532 from Texas Instruments, which i also found to have good quality fabrication. Use a DIP8 socket so you can swap it anytime. thumbup.gif

limitations, come in all forms, from the speaker itself to the soundcard....
it was no meant to be real hi-fi in the first place!

if you ask me,
=) just use whatever you have at hand and easy to get.

cosef has great ideas about opamps....and modding in detail =) he is the pro person to ask this part

Yes, I know the limitations. From the start, I know the purpose-built design of ACS 45.1 is by no means hi-fi equipment, the aim of modding it is just for fun as well as improving its sound quality! After the 1st & 2nd phase modding, I would say the sound quality does improve a lot though it uses TDA7370B which has a 10% THD , it can even to some extent challenge some mini or entry-level hi-fi systems!

Besides, the size of this ACS 45.1 fits the limit room, it's easy to connect a hi-fi system to my computer but difficult to place them since they take up a lot of space!

So, I'll keep up modding it depending on the possibilties and of course the cost effective. Perhaps it's no more an ACS 45.1 since I have even had the satellite speaker units replaced years ago too. That's why I enquired for the possible advantages of having op-amps and some others ICs replaced.

So my sis just bought a pair of VS4621 from pikom pc fair, and the sound only comes out from right satellite, left satellite has no sound at all (idk why she never test it before buying it) All the jack and RCA are properly plugged in.

Could it be the white RCA problem? (It's the one connected to the left satellite) Anybody having same problem?
