[sdiy] Filter problems

Don't use NE5532 for the integrators (U3).  The input bias current
will integrate over time and push the integrator opamps to the
positive rail.  This will happen once the gain of the 2164s is low
enough that the bias current dominates.  Switch to TL072 in that
position.  I would also suggest a TL072 for the other op-amp as with
the resistor values you're using and taking worst-case bias current
you could be seeing 10s of mV (especially U2A).

Also I wouldn't recommend putting the zeners across the integrator capacitor.
