Jupiter .22 uF Copper Foil Wax Paper caps came yesterday. Got them installed today. Even with no break in I can say they are already better than the 10uF Clarity Cap MR's they replaced. Of course using the .22uF value also let me remove the .015uF teflon caps I had on the inputs of the amp. So I was correct - going to a smaller, better quality cap and removing an extra cap from the signal path all conspired to get quite a bit better sound. Nice.
What were the measured difference of the values?
I know with more time you'll have a better handle on the Jupiters, but can you try and describe them vs the MR's? I've had MR's before on another set of speakers and liked them but I have V-caps now on my current set. The thought of changing to Jupiters(if possible) is on my mind...
Does this answer your question, or were you asking something else?
Did you use an L/C/R meter to make sure you were replacing the cap value with a direct replacement so you're not being fooled in the sonic department b/c you're actually changing the value? It's a common mistake...
I think you missed my point that I am deliberately using a different sized cap than the original one. The replacement cap is a different value than the original cap and that's by design.
