I have recently purchased the ASUS Xona Sense. I have noticed that it is same as ASUS Essence STX. I want to the radioshack in oder to find the opamps to upgarde the same. I hvae found LM386N 400Mw AudioAmp 8pin. I wanted to know whether it is safe to put on the sound card of mine. so my query is very simple that it is safe to use LM386N on the Op Amp Socket? Let me know the speculation of yours in this particular thing.
