Take care about your impressions on vcap cutf if you changed shinkoh tantalum as well, i remmeber that they have a big impact on sound and immediately (no burn in) so the change you hear on sound is also due to them, not only vcap (if i'm not wrong it had to do with better textures, silk sound, fluent).
I don't think if you can find CuTF in these parameters. Search on site, or trying to contact Mr. Chris VenHaus. On the other hand, make sure to fit in.
Sit easily! Teflon capacitors are burning-in extremely hard, and will have the opportunity after a few hundred hours (but minimum 300 hours!), to compare each contribution. But you're right, of course. I remember that I adored the change in sound on Shinkoh T. resistors. They have contributed to a better perception of the effect given by the tube, "with better textures, silk sound, fluent". CuTF not only bring this improvement at higher rates, but provides support where this DAC is most deficient (the really critical points): transparency, scene depth&layering, the background, micro-details, a superior resolution and LOTS OF AIR - around instruments (coherence). All these are present naturally and completely with these capacitors.

These from Technics are better than Korean. This is my opinion only... you may feel different.
I broke a pin on K-grade Korean chips when I removed of the socket. The socket on the right side was very close of V-Cap capacitor... Ufff... Then I installed the Japanese chips from Technics, to get over anger. After a few minutes of listening, I can forget the Korean chips becouse those from Robert are clearly better! Are better in terms of transparency, speed and resolution (superior layering, also).
Robert, you were absolutely right. These chips are welcome, and I couldn't imagine the audition without them. Anyone who wants to upgrade the output capacitors with CuTF, should take into serious account these chips. With these, Havana came very close to its topology. Is all it can give in terms of resolution.
