Sounds like you got a bargin there Coldsnow !

It's amazing the difference capacitors can make to the sound of electronics. Whilst some say your better off without them, unfortunately some designs require their use.

In our MA2.2 mic preamp we use WIMA brand coupling caps and they cost us an arm and a leg !! so we decided to try cheaper caps from Taiwan and China. We auditioned about 5 different brands against the WIMA's and found nothing that sounded as good. Even though we could not measure any difference, most of the cheaper caps lacked bottom end and made the MA2.2 sound harsh. Very interesting experiment, but we do continue with the WIMA's...

Cheers
