Hi all ,
would you recommend Rike S-cap on c11 ? I have an Interteknik True Copper for the time being, of wich I'm 95% satisfied. I love her welcoming sound, beautiful medium full of presence and sensuality. Lot of pleasure when listening to music. However it may be a bit round and I would appreciate something a little more incisive.
Regarding the price of S-cap I could have a try but I see you have reservations too : leaner medium, a bit harsh as well... Is it as neutral as Clarity Mr Cap or still warmer ?
The other choice would be duelund or vcap cutf instead of Interteknik True Copper (still on c11) but the price is not the same and I'm not sure it would bring what I'm looking for. Don't want to pay it just to test 1 week. I still have several cutf in my havana and my opinion is it's better to mix caps to get better nuances depending on their tone and qualities but I may be wrong.
I have not done exactly right. I should let the capacitors to burn-in completely and then come up with impressions..
"leaner medium and a bit harsh as well": are some partial conclusions and I think this will be adjust in time. We'll see.
I don't think that S-Cap will sound less well if compared it directly with V-Cap CuTF. Rike are very detailed, transparent and vocals sound beautiful, ...but should be burn-in completely. I do not ever recommend CuTF for C11...it will be burn extremely hard!
My opinion is, wait until my Rike caps are completely burned, for the moment don't change that capacitor (at C11 place).
I bet on Duelund.
