Opamp measurements

Let me recommend this excellent paper on opamp distortion. It contains actual measurements of many chips that have been used in pedals, though it is more applicable to high-end audio applications. It’s a big file to download but if you are interested in this subject, it is well worth a look. Nice work, Samuel!

I was hoping some of the Burr-Brown TI OAs would be in the paper (not that I use those for distortion). Are any of these amps *good* for distortion? And does the data give clues as to why? Basically I got from this paper that $4 are better than $.99 ones for audio purposes 😉 I’ll have to print the PDF and leave it in the bathroom for pondering!

Thanks for the link!
