Thanks for your help and for making such great gear,

The 51SE has very strong and well balanced voice, to better it you would need to go to the transformer coupled model, like the 33SE, that one has a bit more air, without losing any weight.

I don't think the capacitors need much breaking in period, but then I am not a great believer in breaking in in general, I am all for just using the equipment.

I would not worry about replacing the other 4 caps, they do not suffer from the electrical leakage, like the SIX-PAK caps do.

Best,

Victor

I have a VK50SE and found the Sovtek 6H30 to sound great. I have also thought of switching out the Jensen caps with Mundorfs.

I switch back and forth between a ARC LS27 and my VK50SE. Something about the BAT preamp that I find very captivating. I am currently waiting on a REF5SE to come my way when the person receives their REF6. This might be the game changer between the LS27 and the VK50SE.
