Upgrade to DRV8825?


#1

Would it be feasible (or a good idea) to replace the A4988 drivers with DRV8825 drivers, in the interest of making my printer quieter and smoother? I’ve seen mixed results around the web with this move.
Thanks,
Ryan

Very curious about this too. I print with 0.2 layer height and from what i researched, it appeared that there was no noticeable improvement (resolution wise, unless you print smaller) but there is not alot of info out there and honestly, any quick mod to improve quality is always welcome!

I haven’t tried these yet but this one looks pretty impressive:

Loudness comparison to A4982:

Anybody has some experience with that?
