Thx
Looks like Dennis put some pretty nice caps in your amp.

[B]And what have you found that you like? [B] Yes, but my speakers are horn loaded and what I'm using would likely not work for you.

I see. I may give something a try. First I'll get back into the amp and see what values we have for those red barrel bypass caps. I assume the black piggie backing cap is parallel and just alters the value.

Peter,

I'm using Russian K75-10's, Vitamin Q's, Audiocap Theta, Cactus Blue and Duelund Copper and tin bypass caps. IMHO, caps can be rolled/swapped like tubes. It's a personal experiment in system synergy.

I've had a non oversampling MHDT Labs Havana DAC for a long time and have tried several different caps. Audio cap Theta's with a Arizona Cactus Blue are a home run in my rig.

Google capacitor shootout Jon L there is a lot of good info there.

Les

Tried a pair of the metal 6F6 in my Inspire, they are everything like described by BearCityUSA. Better than the pair of 6F6G that I was giving a spin.

If you haven't seen it already, The National Valve Museum cut open a metal 6J5 to see whats what.
Ever wonder about those American Metal Valves, is the title of the article.
