[sdiy] SOIC LT101 equivalent / dilemma

Pulled the MC33078DG off the list because it ended up looking more like an a possible alternative to the TL072 rather than an upgrade.

Currently looking at the TLE2142ID and possibly the OPA2209AIDR as a mid-point between the TL072 and the high-end OPA2227.

Definitely still interested if anyone has anything to add on these - at the moment it does seem a bit like comparing a box of apples and oranges all labelled as 'fruit'.

Thanks all...

Has anyone got any experience with any of the MC3307x variants? 


Data sheet spec vs. price - thought it *might* be a good midway option between the TL074 and the obviously very good but much pricier OPA22x options... but that's obviously pretty speculative at this stage!

Thanks - appreciated.

The OPA2134 would be a big step up, but nowadays I use OPA2227.  The 
quad version of the OPA2227 is OPA4227.  Be careful with the 
OPA2277/4277, because it has a pretty slow slew rate.  OK for the 
converter probably, but maybe/maybe not for how you are using the other 
two sections.
