Now before everyone throws the recapping under the bus, think about this. You can "roll" different brands of caps in there and change the sound just like you can with tubes....just takes a bit more work.
Coil used totally different caps than I did, and got a different result. Specs are not everything.
And the end result on my Aune is I only change the secondary supply caps, and put the originals back in elsewhere. It would take someone at your skill level maybe 15 minutes to swap them out and give it a shot. If you don't like it, swap the others back in.
Yes, confirmed, capacitor specs are not everything. Although those Panasonic FM & FR & AM have very high specs, they do not "sound" so good (subjective) as stock caps, although transparency, imaging and soundstage improved littlebit (for EDM these caps are actually pretty good). Had to learn it my own in "hard way". But this modding and fiddling with Aune T1 is fun for me ;) I`m already searching info and asking some electricians how to get dB-meter for each channel installed ;D I want to build wooden custom case and thought about having nice illuminated analog dB meters too ;P
