I've seen it done to dual opamps as well, in a Peavey guitar amp, something like 1458, don't recall the exact type.It might be related to their manufacturing process? Maybe they were using a vision process which handled black on silver better than white on black?If they were using a specific bin of a part, because of "sound" reasons, they wouldn't use the regular "CN" extension on them.
Best regards,
Jarno.

> I'm not sure it is that special?But then why go to all the trouble and expense of re-processing them (asNils mentions too), unless you can sell them at a premium?By the way, here is the Gearslutz post:https://www.gearslutz.com/board/7285841-post9.htmlfrom which"...op amps of the same manufactor can differ in sound over the decades..ther was the silver series from Ti for example that wasnt just betterlooking..."implying they sounded 'better' in some way?!Tim__________________________________________________________Tim Stinchcombe Cheltenham, Glos, UKemail: tim102 at timstinchcombe.co.ukwww.timstinchcombe.co.uk_______________________________________________Synth-diy mailing listSynth-diy at dropmix.xs4all.nlhttp://dropmix.xs4all.nl/mailman/listinfo/synth-diy
