The Kemet film caps have improved the sound stage, 3D imaging and extensions of the lowers & bass. This direct-out mod itself purifies the sound and renders more details. But during that process the caps make a big difference from my experience.

 

Modding the 5.5g's has brought me the fun and rewarding experience.

I also have and still own a RX MK2, but the Leckerton is clearly the winner in my opinion.

Not a great photo, but my current rig: iMod (with internal caps) > Fiio LOD (want to replace with a low-profile one for convinence) > Pico Slim > FitEar F111 with Whiplash TWcu cable. ALO Rx MKI looking on.

 

Should have a TTVJ Slim coming in soon to check out. Still interested in the Vorzuge Pure and RSA Shadow. Would be willing to do a temporary trade with people in the US if they have those amps. Let me know if you'd be interested since I really would like to hear those amps!

Quite serious stuff but they're huge :-

Mass Kobo 385 (which itself is large) seems small by comparison

@Sean

How's the Kobo amp sound? It will be available soon in my local Jaben. I might wanna try it...looks like Wagnus & Kobo are the japanese top brand.

Hi Sean

How is the SQ comparison between Mass Kobo 385 vs Wagnus Epsilon S ?

Kobo 385 cost more than Wagnus Epsilon S , am I right Sean.

I love the SQ from my Wagnus

Yes you are right
Looks so simple like cheap amp , but if heard the SQ you can feel this high end SQ
Every source you pair with Wagnus sound so good .

These are more "boutique" Japanese amps. At least in Japan, they're order-only & may take some time before they're delivered.

Rudi, RRP-wise, the Wagnus is about $200 more than the Mass Kobo 385. Sound-wise, the Wagnus has the more fuller "big hall" sound in comparison to the 385, however the 385 is no slouch either. I've not done comparisons to the mainstream ALOs, JDS Labs, Leckertons, etc. though. So can't comment on how these amps would compare against those.
