These modules are from one of the last 8078’s produced by Neve. Some insight on IC based Op Amps vs. Discrete courtesy of Geoff Tanner
“discrete transistor op amps or IC based OP Amps (BA440 vs BA640). My take on this is that it’s audiophile hype and rumour. Neither amp is class A and the later amps were vastly superior performance… the BBC would not accept consoles fitted with the discrete amps due to their poor overload recovery. Neve thought the IC amps were better, the BBC laboratories thought the IC amps were better and I share their point of view. It’s the iron makes the sound more than choice of amplifier.”
