Incredible post Jon !!! I've actually read all 45 posts now... I recently bought a Transcendent Grounded Grid preamp with some upgrades and Mundorf M Cap Supreme 1uF 410VAC/600VDC coupling caps. I know you were using V-Cap Teflon caps but a little too costly at this point. I was considering Mundorf Silver/Gold/Oil or Jupiter Copper Foil caps. Have you tried these in your Transcendent preamp yet ? Thanks
Take a look at what Keithh has done to his Wedgie speaker. Cutting out the board to allow the capacitors to rest inside the cut outs.http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=151056.0You could also just use silicone sealant to hold and somewhat isolate the capacitors from the boards.
I haven't heard any mention about the Cornell Dubilier 940C series 0.01uF/3000V for bypassing! Tony Gee says the Vishay MKP1837 used to be his favorite low cost bypass capacitor, but now it is the Cornell Dubilier 940C. Has anyone tried these? I also wonder about the other 950C series in speaker crossovers? Not that expensive, yet they come in higher values then the 940C!
Hm, I might order some. I like that Tony is trying out these industrial options. He's got Panasonic EP-ZE(?) or something like that up next. Curious how those will be rated since they come in inexpensive large values up to 60uf.
Would anyone know about the how good are the "european terminator blocks" used to bolt crossover parts together and wire internal speaker wires up in crossovers sound?(see my crossover pic above)As for the monsterous sized Duesland caps I see they are using out of speaker crossover platforms and bolting the parts and wires together with hardware store copper grounding lugs (shaped like a copper boot with a screw bolt inside). Are these better?
Tyson,Did you listen to the Audyn true copper or the true copper MAX (latest and best version)?
....I will say this - all copper foil caps (including the Audyns) are very smooth. Whether forward, middle, or laid back in overall sound, ALL of them had a smooth, coherent sound from top to bottom. ....
Tyson,You did not answer my question. Audyn makes a true copper and a true copper MAX capacitor. See this page: https://www.intertechnik.de/shop/cross-over-parts/capacitors/1768,en,9Which did you listen to? Thanks.
Yes, those leads are rather unwieldly. I have some MAX here and I am going to try to grind off the epoxy on a small part of one end and see if I can solder my own wire onto the connecting goo inside. If it works (I do this now on Wima caps and have done this to some JB JFX caps) then I will remove all the leads and epoxy on both sides and solder my own wires on. With a dremel and sanding disc does not take that much time to remove all the epoxy, etc......is rather messy....recommend a mask as the epoxy dust goes everywhere. Hey, doesn't everyone mod their capacitors?
That sounds a bit hackish to me.
