Today was a learning experience.
In the amp I just built I used a different brand capacitors then I normally use.
And the amp sounded like crap the music had no life to it and less bass.
So I changed them to the Sprague capacitors that I normally use .
Turned on the amp and it was back to holey sh*t that sounds good.
I figured if the value was the same how much different can it sound ? Allot
different.

So now the amp sounds great again to be backed tomorrow for shipment on Monday.

Good thing you dry test every amp for couple days.  :D

It is also possible that those caps may have needed additional burn in time. I guess you never know.
post #6157 of 10392

I hope this cap sounds good...

 

post #6158 of 10392

You too? I just ordered a pair c3g\s too. It was either those or a type 10. Then Glenn said I would need a pre to used the 10. Those globe 10 sure are expensive now, so I went the other route.

Wow, Glenn must work 24/7 to build all these amps.

Burn in won't make that big of a change.

Are these the good ones that say POST on them ?

If they're from the German guy I posted, these are the normal ones without "Post"
