That's interesting.  I've been under the impression that the 356 is good 
for pre-amp purposes.  Seems like it would have to sound good to be used 
for that.  

While we're on this subject - how much better are opamps like the 
LF411/412 than the TL07X series?  How about the Analog Devices series?  
Is it really possible to hear that much difference?
