I love that you hate my tweakiness. Please, more one liners!
Just an update as I have some cool news. If you've read anywhere in this thread you know I'm a Jupiter cap fanatic. However I've found something better AND cheaper. What?!! Haha that never happens, right!?Check out the new Miflex caps, the copper version are amazing. I've been replacing all of the coupling and/or output caps in all my amps from the Jupiter copper to the Miflex caps. IME the Miflex have better tonal density, more punch, more detail and present a blacker background. In almost every respect that I care about, the Miflex are a serious step up. Highly recommended, especially since they cost 1/2 to 1/3 of the Jupiter caps. That's some crazy good value right there.
Listening to the Miflex Aluminum now. Really impressed.
Are you using these in crossovers or in a component such as a DAC or a preamp?
Thanks!I finally pulled the drivers out of my Adelphos speakers to check the caps' values. I'm looking at a 12uF I 250v and a 6.2uF 200VDC. One is an Erse and the other is a Sonicap Generation 1.Now, under which circumstances would one wish to use the copper or aluminum caps? Also, I notice that neither Sonic Craft nor Danny offers a 200VDC. Could I still use a 600VDC in place of a 200 VDC cap?Michael
You'd want to replace the caps to the tweeter. I don't know Jeff's crossover for the Adelphos but I'm guessing the Sonicap is the tweeter cap. That's the one you'd want to replace. 600V will work just fine. Since 6.2uF will be pretty expensive maybe split the difference and combine two caps, 1/2 expensive, half not so expensive. Clarity Cap CSA would make a great inexpensive half that performs better than the Sonicap Gen 1.
