Good job man. I look forward to hearing it if you should hold another small get-together to face-off the DAC1 in Malaysia.

Note that I will be leaving the country this 23rd September.

Cheers.

FWIW, the EFN's creation has a name: ShuttlePod

FrankenPod sounds more adequate.

LOL! FrankenPod or ShuttlePod, both sounds good. But MrArroyo came first with the ShuttlePod moniker so I guess I'll go with that. Whatever it is, a second beta unit is undergoing development now - I am sourcing out for a box/exclosure to make them look a little more "civilised" with proper jacks.

Because as a few already mentioned earlier, I doubt the Airport dudes will allow me to pass through with my current rig

That's flippin' sweet. Is the change in sound brought on more by the change to a better cap or due to more capacitance?

Oh how I'd love to hear the rig

It's hard to tell because I am not an expert on caps - I only know how to mod - that's me, whenever in doubt I'll just experiment first and then ask later LOL!

But from my experiments, it does seems that certain value and material of the caps will drastically "condition" the sound - for better or worse based on the listener's judegement.

Yes, when it comes to capacitors, bigger is better. I have some in my portable rig that dwarf EFN's -- they are 150,000 uF and the size of soda cans. They are a bit awkward to tote around but they sound AWESOME. I am trying to hunt down some even bigger ones. I have a line on some that were used in the Soviet space program in the 60s. They are 750,000 uF and each one is the size of a fire hydrant. They should sound AMAZING.

ROFLMAO! In fact some Audiophiles do use ex Soviet Union Military caps procured off eBay - read this article on 20 Caps Shootout http://www.vhaudio.com/21capacitorshootout.pdf
