2359 Glenn CSP2!

That's why Glenn could only use one Sprague cap. One big one. I don't know what's in those two black shrink-wrap thingies.

Those are paper in oil caps  in a metal can that needed to be covered.

I only use paper in oil coupling caps don"t like the sound of plastic.

I modded MMs WA22 with V caps and  it sounded like crap to me.

I just looked at Clayton's pictures and that transformer has wires for 115/230

so it can be easily be rewired.

I thought MM love it after the mod.  What you don't like after the mod?

He may very well be. But that's what good neighbors (and former) do, check on each other.

What's your DAC's output voltage?


The same as yours.  :wink_face:

 

Just to make sure my comment was being interpreted right, I have no issue with volume the system will play crazy loud.  After a certain point it just starts to sound strained, mostly in the form of treble sibilance which is true of all systems.  This only happens at volumes I wouldn't normally listen at, and honestly most of it was probably coming from the coupling caps and the new sylvania tubes since the amp was sounding bright in general during that particular period of break-in.

Very good. Give him my regards. I've never met him but have had many great conversations with him.
