|This is not a troll thread trying to discuss sound quality or anything like that, so please don't jump to conclusions. I have a few questions that I hope might be answered. I see some op amps cost a lot more than others. For example the Muses 01. It costs significantly more than other op amps. I think it's $90.
Others cost $4. My question is - I've done reading online and many products, some very expensive, seem to be incorporating these particular op amps in their designs.
1) Why would they do this if they could have used a $4 dollar one? Wouldn't it be far better cost saving measure?
2) How much does it really cost to make these $90 op amps? Do they cost a lot more than regular op amps or not?
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
