You know the sound flavor from this particular combo of my gears never eases to amaze me as I listen to my music everyday. I have tried all the possible combos given the gears in my possession and this one is just different and stands out clearly. When the music doesn't sound as good as I want, I know the problem is with the recording. The diy thingy is fun and I am just getting into it. The K film caps are great as they sound even better with time.
